About Us

America's broadest, deepest pool of health knowledge

Blue Health Intelligence (BHI) accesses the industry's largest and most comprehensive, conformed healthcare database of integrated medical and pharmacy claims. As a result, BHI is a valuable resource for virtually any entity committed to high-quality healthcare coverage and services in America.

All data used for BHI analytics undergoes four levels of certification, including an independent third-party actuarial review, ensuring the strongest foundation of statistically reliable data.

BHI builds exceptional predictive models, supporting care management, identifying at-risk patients and determining appropriate levels of care and effective disease management programs. BHI's predictive analytics capabilities can even identify patient risk factors for rare conditions that have eluded other organizations, allowing clients to proactively address those factors. Just as exciting, these actionable insights ultimately help raise quality standards and manage rising healthcare costs.
