The newly formed Clinical Products data science team helps supercharge clinical programs to improve member health and lower costs. Given our size, scope, and deep set of capacities, we have an unparalleled platform to make a difference in healthcare in the US and beyond.

The Clinical Products team has three main goals. First, launching a series of clinical programs that use the resources of the combined merged programmes and our team delivers the advanced analytics to support those initiatives. Second, the team develops data-driven clinical recommendations that are delivered to members, their providers, and their caregivers. Finally, we build condition-specific models that help other parts of the company (e.g. pricing) better predict member care journeys.
