Deerwalk is pleased to announce the 3.1.0 release of Makalu. This release includes the following key features:

Data Search for Visits and Admissions

New functionality has been added so that when a user drills down into visits or admissions under Utilization Metrics in the Financial Analytics module they are taken directly to a screen that gives them more detail on the member’s admission/ER Visit. Users can then drilldown further to view all the claims for those services.


Report Package

Users generate hard/soft copies of the Healthplan Report in Makalu on a regular basis using varied combinations of parameters and individual reports. This is can be a time-consuming, repetitive process. Makalu now has added a feature in the Generate Health Plan functionality which allows the user to select reports not only from Financial Analytics but also Clinical Analytics to combine into the Health Plan Report. Report preferences can be set and used over again as a “report package”. Users can create unlimited report packages.

OSHA Data search

In Makalu 3.1.0 clients have the opportunity to import their Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) data. OSHA data can be viewed independent of Medical, Pharmacy, Eligibility, Biometric or HRA Data.

KYN Data Search

Clients who use Biosignia’s Know Your Number health risk assessment and import that data into Makalu can now view that data in the application. This allows the user to combine the HRA data with other data elements in Makalu.

Network Comparison Report

The newly added Network Comparison Report analyzes utilization and the network discounts achieved for the membership during the reporting period. The network access fee is excluded from this analysis unless the network reduces the discount to recover the fee.
