Extracting value out of health care data has been challenging historically. Data are often inconsistent between systems, and each system usually contains only part of the complete picture. Additionally, most patient information is captured as unstructured text that goes largely unused in the provision of care. Artificial intelligence (AI) can extract transformative insights from this data to improve clinical care and automate administrative tasks.

This webinar will provide a foundational overview of AI techniques being used today to derive insights from health care data. We’ll then explore some AI applications for key areas of investment at health insurance providers including risk adjustment, quality measurement, social determinants of health, and prior authorizations.

Attendees will learn:

  • Why operationalizing data-driven decisions at scale is a challenge
  • How common AI techniques work to derive insights and value from patient data
  • What key business goals AI can help payers achieve
  • Practical applications of AI in risk adjustment, quality measurement, social determinants of health, and prior authorizations
