PROPELLING THE TECHNOLOGY
FORWARD FOR OVER 20 YEARS
Most health plan solutions available today follow advancing technologies. We create advancing technologies.
Strong Academic Heritage – BST's data science team is regarded as one of the leading analytics, optimization, and computer science teams in the world. Our co-founder, Dr. Dimitris Bertsimas, co-director of the Operations Research Center at MIT, has co-authored more than 220 scientific papers in optimization, data mining, applied probability and quantitative finance and has written 4 textbooks that are used in over 40 universities around the world.
Deep Experience – Dr. Bertsimas, recognized as an early pioneer in healthcare analytics, helped create a leading healthcare analytics tool (D2Hawkeye) in 2001. Since before BST’s inception in 2012, the team has been developing advanced and proprietary techniques to solve complex healthcare decisions and that innovation continues.
New Methods – Other analytics solutions are applying descriptive and predictive analytics to define what has happened in a health plan and what’s likely to happen next. Only BST takes that a step further with our proprietary prescriptive analytics (Plan Optimizer) to tell plan owners what to do about it.
Unique IP – We combine proprietary techniques (supervised and unsupervised machine learning algorithms) with advanced data science and predictive modeling to augment traditional actuarial science. The result: We quickly and efficiently sort massive data sets to stratify risk and identify high-cost drivers, producing timely insights into global risk factors within a population.
Unmatched Results – These unique capabilities allow us to provide specific medical plan recommendations optimized to employers’ budget and population health, provide an accurate assessment of plan performance, and enhance the ability to manage plans more responsively.
Continuous Improvement – Our association with the Operations Research Center at MIT ensures our continued role in leading advancements in analytics, optimization, and computer science technologies to solve an evolving range of problems in the healthcare space.
DATA SCIENCE IS EVOLVING AND
IT'S CHANGING EVERYTHING
We help power tomorrow’s mathematical corporation today.
The healthcare decision space involves massive volumes of complex data, an amount that is projected to grow exponentially in the coming years. Solving those complex math problems is made possible through advanced analytics, but speed has been a limiting factor. BST is combining faster computing power with our proprietary algorithms to deliver insights about your plan faster than ever. We solve MIOs (Mixed Integer Optimizations) 800 billion times faster since 1999.
