It is imperative that organizations continually have a focus on Medicare Stars to achieve optimal success and reach their contract goals. Is your organization currently experiencing pain points within your Stars Program? At ProspHire, we’ve been partnering with health plans to conduct comprehensive Stars Capability Assessments. These assessments enable us to produce sustainable strategic plans to achieve contract level success.

Below we detail some common organizational challenges facing low performing or at-risk Stars contracts.

Common Organizational Challenges

  • Lack of Organizational Wide Buy-In
  • Siloed Entities with the Health Plan
  • Lack of Stars Education and Awareness
  • Poor or Weak Governance Structure
  • Limited Stars Budget and Dedication

  • Reactive not Proactive Program Actions
  • Poor Measure and Contract Level Forecasting
  • Lack of Analytics Driving Decision Making
