Improve Prospective Claims Analysis

January 29, 2013
2:00 - 3:30 p.m. EST

Why pay-and-chase when you can make the right decision the first time?  Incorrectly paid claims require fixing, resulting in rework, waste and friction with members and providers.  Claims errors, waste and fraudulent incidents are most often examined retrospectively to determine what happened, what was paid incorrectly, and what types of complaints are being received.  A better – and market leading – solution is to look at transactions before the claim is paid to predict and improve claim payment processes.

This webinar discussion will explore sophisticated capabilities and models to predict and solve for claims payment issues.  Machine Learning algorithms, like Support Vector Machine (SVM), evaluate thousands of permutations to predict issues that lead to over and under payments that others miss.  

Webinar attendees will learn about the opportunities to apply predictive modeling to prospectively improve claims payment processes before any errors arise, thereby creating tremendous value for both health payers and providers.
