SHPS, a provider of health management services, is using software from SAS in an attempt to improve member health and client care.

SHPS works with employers, health plans, hospitals and other agencies to provide better healthcare while trying to minimize patient and client costs.

“Our Integrated Health Management services drive down healthcare costs by bringing together everything from benefit eligibility and enrollment of members to disease management and disability management,” said Keith Stoneback, president of healthcare services at SHPS. “This unique approach to healthcare management demands a single, powerful software platform that can help us determine the most effective courses of treatment and communicate our plans and results to our clients. That’s why we chose SAS.”

SHPS will utilize SAS’ Enterprise Business Intelligence Server for analysis and reporting of data and SAS Enterprise Miner to analysis of its data.
