about

Provider Network Management is one of the key challenges faced by health insurance providers in the US health care ecosystem. The interactions between insurance providers and health care providers are multi-dimensional, all the way from claims submissions to contract management to collaborating towards better health care outcomes. A holistic approach is required to resolve all the ensuing, strategic, tactical & operational challenges faced while managing this complex relationship. We intend to elaborate more on the nuance to the relationship & how digital technology can help solve the key problems and bring structure to the multi-faceted management paradigm required to solve the same.

Provider network management encompasses a wide variety of components, from preventing referral leakage to managing the price for a given clinical procedure. Healthcare provider network management helps the payers access accurate provider data, verify it, and update it as needed.

This webinar will focus mainly on the importance of payer provider collaboration to achieve enhanced care delivery to members and reduce overall costs. It talks about the rising cost burden on health plans due to data fragmentation and how it is affecting healthcare. Learn how payers can overcome inefficiencies across functions and generate more savings and better patient outcomes.

Attendees will learn about:

  • The rising cost burden on health insurance providers due to data fragmentation
  • Ways to reduce the overall cost and enhance care delivery
  • The role of insurance providers and health care provider collaboration in reducing the administrative cost
  • The need for actionable insights at the point of care
  • The role of value-based care in enhancing payer-provider collaboration
