Simply put, try to think of a rules engine as a mailroom or assembly line for your data. When data comes to the mailroom, it goes through the “rules engine” and gets sorted by city, state, zip, etc. An assembly line combines raw materials and component parts to make an end product. A healthcare rules engine works in much the same way – taking raw healthcare data, such as medical claims, pharmacy claims, eligibility data or EMR data, and applies rules to turn that data into meaningful components that can then be further analyzed in order to create actionable steps to improve performance of a healthplan or a health system. http://blog.deerwalk.com/what-is-a-population-health-analytics-rules-engine-and-why-should-i-care?utm_content=37421679&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook
