KPI Details : New Member Enrollment Accuracy Rate
New Member Enrollment Accuracy Rate measures the number of accurate new member health plan enrollments completed (i.e., enrollments that do not have errors, or missing information/documentation) in relation to the total number of enrollments completed over the same period of time. A relatively low value for this metric is typically related to a few common factors, including highly manual enrollment processes (i.e., manual application submissions, data entries, etc.), inefficient call script and customer communication policies, poor customer contact tracking and management (i.e., tracking of customer communications and contact information), and sub-par health insurance back office employee training and performance. Each of these factors can lead to increased error rates, longer cycle times and increased customer confusion and dissatisfaction which can vastly increase operating expenses and customer attrition rates.
