Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business has recognized Humana Inc. with its Analytics Leadership Award.
Humana received the award for developing a comprehensive, novel predictive model that identifies individuals at greatest risk for falls.
The award is presented to the winners of a competition conducted by the school’s Institute for Business Analytics. It promotes innovative adoption of analytics within corporations. Judges were looking for a project that matches analytical rigor with practical and beneficial applications for the company and its clients.
“We are excited to recognize the successful journey of our corporate partners in applying analytics for a myriad of business applications,” said Ash Soni, executive associate dean for academic programs and a professor of operations and decision technologies at Kelley. “These projects reflect the kind of education the Kelley School strives for: applying strong quantitative skills for solving real business problems.”
The Analytics Leadership Award was created to highlight today’s important and rapid adoption of sophisticated analytics for improving productivity, increasing profits, reducing costs, managing risks and creating a competitive advantage for organizations worldwide.
