Coronavirus Hotspot Analysis

Coronavirus Hotspots were released by Governor Cuomo of New York in June and October. We looked at our member population to determine which members and regions are at a higher risk vs others. Data from multiple open sources and proprietary sources was blended together to identify who is at a risk and what are high risk zones. The data included:

– Continuity of Care and access to care, PCP
– Comorbidities and underlying conditions
– Social Connectedness
– Social Vulnerability
– Socioeconomic factors
– Demographic factors

We used this analysis to formulate our strategies for different members and regions and reduce the overall pain and suffering of our member population in this pandemic.
