Carrot Health Enhances Consumer Insights Platform with Social Determinants of Health Data from LexisNexis Risk Solutions

MINNEAPOLIS – June 8 , 2021Carrot Health, a leading provider of solutions powered by consumer and healthcare data, will incorporate social determinants of health (SDOH) data from LexisNexis® Risk Solutions into its Carrot MarketView® platform under a new collaboration. Through the collaboration with the Health Care business of LexisNexis Risk® Solutions, Carrot Health will integrate clinically validated SDOH attributes from LexisNexis Risk Solutions into its predictive models – enhancing the insights it delivers to payers and providers to guide decisions around member engagement and health management.

“Consumer attributes are among the most powerful factors influencing health outcomes, creating barriers and inequities that prevent populations from leading their healthiest lives. Carrot Health’s SRG harnesses this information to measure and monitor social determinants of health at the individual level, providing comprehensive insights our customers need to design strategies for identifying and closing gaps in care while providing a more personalized member experience,” said Kurt Waltenbaugh, CEO, Carrot Health. “We chose LexisNexis Risk Solutions after extensive evaluation and testing because their consumer data proved to be the most accurate and comprehensive in the market. We are excited about this addition to our platform as we continue to help payers improve member health.”

The Carrot MarketView® platform harnesses clinical, social, economic, behavioral, and environmental data to deliver insights for growth, health, and quality, providing health plans with a 360-degree view of their members. Carrot Health is the only vendor delivering consumer insights, at scale, for every adult in the United States, along with individual-level SDOH scoring and monitoring, for the healthcare industry. This scoring model helps predict the likelihood of an individual having an adverse health outcome due to their SDOH profile.

The data from LexisNexis Risk solutions will enhance Carrot Health’s predictive models, which already include consumer data, ICD-10 Z-codes, publicly available health indicators, claims, survey responses, and other proprietary data – providing unmatched accuracy to a scoring model.

“We are proud to collaborate with Carrot Health as they help their customers understand the relationship between SDOH data and patient health, and improve outcomes across their entire spectrum of care,” said Josh Schoeller, CEO, Health Care, LexisNexis Risk Solutions. “This demonstrates the power of turning SDOH data into valuable insights that truly improve care.”
