“We are pleased to have the opportunity to share our insights on the Medicare Advantage (MA) program, which is expected to be used by 42% of Medicare beneficiaries by 2028,” says Hetler, a customer-focused, healthcare technology leader with over seven years of experience in building software products to improve the workflows for healthcare professionals in value-based arrangements. He is credited with onboarding two of the nation’s three largest MA health plans onto DataLink’s Evoke360 platform, which currently includes over 10,000 active users, managing over six million members.

“Based upon our expertise and experience in this market, we will explore and provide insights into what to expect from this popular program,” Hetler continues. “This will include guidance and multiple perspectives on how plans earn higher star ratings, what new supplemental benefits CMS could approve and what new innovations could emerge for MA plans.”

Most MA beneficiaries enroll in a plan that has at least four stars on the MA plan finder ratings system. The webinar underscores this significant potential impact and examines how to 1) use a holistic approach to achieve five stars, 2) effectively communicate with plan holders on what to improve upon and 3) tailor prevention and care coordination toward improving star ratings.

Evoke360 is designed for payers, providers, accountable care organizations (ACOs), provider groups and managed service organizations (MSOs) that manage quality, risk adjustment and care for patient populations. Evoke360 improves operational performance, care delivery and patient outcomes.
