Blue Cross Blue Shield Association (BCBSA) and Blue Health Intelligence (BHI) have partnered to offer a unique data analytics challenge, the winner of which will be granted access to BCBSA’s data, HealthITAnalytics reports.
As part of the challenge, participants will be required to comb through a vast amount of data to generate actionable insights that could be used to bolster the health care experience, among other things.
BCBSA Executive Vice President and CFO Bob Kolodgy says a “major roadblock” to developing new solutions to improve the U.S. health system is a “lack of access to data.”
“The Blue Cross Blue Shield Association and Blue Cross and Blue Shield companies across the country are committed to making health care more accessible, more affordable and simpler to support the health of America,” Kolodgy said.
