Monday, July 13, 2015

EXL (NASDAQ:EXLS), a leading business process solutions company, today announced that it has received a special award for its Analytics solution on ‘Preventive Hospitalization’ at the NASSCOM Big Data & Analytics Summit in Hyderabad on June 25, 2015. This solution was also included in the ‘NASSCOM Top 50 Excellence in Analytics’ report that was released at the Summit.

This solution helps healthcare providers identify patients at risk for hospital admission. It enables healthcare providers to anticipate or predict the needs of a patient and intervene through proactive care plans before the patient faces an emergency that necessitates hospital admission. This healthcare solution integrates more than 100 individual predictive models using techniques from the fields of statistics, econometrics, epidemiology, actuarial sciences and machine learning. These models are combined together using proprietary ensembling algorithms. According to the American Hospital Association, more than 71 million individuals in the United States are admitted to hospitals each year. A large portion of these admissions are deemed unnecessary or avoidable and cost healthcare providers upwards of $30 billion in unnecessary hospital admissions.
