We live in a performance-oriented society. People like to compare their accomplishments in business as much as in sports. Plus, the reality is, you can’t manage what you don’t measure. That’s why we produce a monthly Scorecard for our clients – so we can measure and manage what really matters. “Keeping Score” is a new way for us to regularly share results we’re achieving with our clients, so you have the opportunity to compare how your health plan is performing relative to others. We hope you find it beneficial.
