Portfolio for Kevin McDonnell - Databases and Reporting Examples
Database Applications Created from Scratch
The HedgeBook Db: This application was created to track company sales as they relate to transactions made on the NYMEX trading floor.
SCDb(Sales Commissions Db)
On-Site Review Switchboard: This application was created to manage inspections conducted by Representatives of a Health Insurance Co.
Mental Health Providers Database: This application was created for Mental Health Vendor to advise customers who they could see.
Contract Mailing Project: This database was created to acknowledge receipt of registered contract packages
Provider Counts: This database was created to count the number of providers in a variety of ways including geographically, by specialty, by agreement type, by provider type and much more; also, including metrics such as quality scores, cost trends and procedure & diagnosis frequencies.
Health e Net Tracking: This database was created to track health care providers who signed up for an on-line consortium, and those who have not.
Coumadin Clinic Claims Database: This database was created to track the medical claims of customers who were engaged in a study being conducted by the a Medical Group.
Percent Generic Corrections:
This database was created to correct assignment of prescriptions to a particular provider.
Percent Generic Database: This database was created to calculate the percent of prescriptions prescribed by providers, which were generic. This calculation was used to determine, in part, this medical group’s incentive payments.
Provider Participation Analysis: This database was created for Marketing to compare the providers in one of our networks to the providers who had previously been available to a group’s Providers under their former Health Insurance Plan.
Scoring Mechanisms Created from Scratch
CRMS Provider and Member Claims Data by ETG: This database was created to list claims involved in a particular provider’s Episode Treatment Group.
These databases aggregated scores, claims, member counts and other criteria & calculated the dollar amounts of a provider’s semi-annual incentive payment.
HMO 100 Provider Network Reselection Database: When I started this process it consisted of 5 separate databases, a number of spreadsheets and an antiquated multistep selection process which resulted in various spreadsheets that our personnel had to comb through to find reselection results. The HMO 100 reselection process which I created is contained in one single database, accessible to everyone and includes statistical reporting, historic view, SIDS review, Provider participation analysis and midlevel analysis. The database counts and compares our providers before and after reselection, applies clinically defined criteria, applies filters for excluded groups & IPAs and type & specialties, sorts and organizes lists and provides a search function to quickly report on a provider’s reselection status. I am proud to report that what once took weeks and months to process, can now be done at the press of a button and results in tables, reports, comparisons, analysis, change request lists and mailing lists in several short hours. The previous method involved 27 pages of instruction and a lengthy process of importing, exporting, changing data formats, manual grouping & sorting and the previous mail logic which resulted in the costly return of 20% of our mail. The new process requires no documentation, because it requires only one button to run the selection, create the mailing & change request and populate the reporting tool. The only documentation remaining is the clinical criteria for the reselection, which is available within the database itself as a hyperlink.
