Inspera Health - Meet a Vendor


Shortlister hosted Lee Murphy, CEO/Founder at Inspera Health, to learn how to transform the health of individuals with five or more lifelong multiple chronic conditions. (MCCs)

FACT: Employers continue to focus on high cost claimants as a top priority.

Star 50% of your members between the ages of 45 & 64 have MCCs.

Star12% have 5+ MCCs representing 40+% of your health care spend.

Star20% of members account for 80+% of your health care spend.

Most health improvement solutions were created to address single, specific conditions.  When there are multiple chronic conditions, managing those conditions becomes very complex.  Furthermore, most conditions, once present, typically require lifelong management for sustained change and this requires lifestyle improvement.

Inspera Health is a health improvement company with over 20 years of laser-focused experience targeting high cost claimants with multiple chronic conditions (MCCs).  Their validated metrics for measuring investment and health outcomes are part of a comprehensive large claim reduction strategy. 



tenureHave 50% longer tenure than average (not career mobile)

behavioral75% have behavioral health conditions, which amplify other conditions

targetAre not identified as a strategic target focus

dollarHave higher risk and 10x to 30x higher cost over a multi-year period



Because of the complexities associated with having 5+ MCCs, short-term, digital solutions will NOT produce sustainable outcomes.  According to the AHRQ (a division of HHS) MCC Research Network findings, effective management attributes consider the following:

People with MCCs are more than just a collection of diseases

Patient preferences and values need to be assimilated

Consideration of the person in context of their relationships

Inclusion of mental health care as an integral part of health



1. Recruitment and Enrollment – varied length

2. Assessment and Plan Development – 0-80 days

3. Core Program – 12-18 months

4. Graduation Preparation – 2-4 months
