Risk stratification methodology

Would it be possible to get the details on Cherokee Health System’s Biopsychosocial Assessment scoring? ie, what factors are included in each category (Pt. Info, Social factors, and Claims/Utilization), and how are values assigned to each variable to create overall scores … like what Petaluma has shared?

Also, are there any other “home grown” risk stratification methodologies that include SDOH and not just demographic and diagnostic variables?


Hi @kstambaugh. Here’s the slidedeck from the Cherokee site visit on their assessment. I think this answers some of your questions about the factors taken into account.

CCI is also hosting a webinar on Risk Stratification on Mar 15, 2019 12-1 pm. You can register here.
