About This Webinar

Health insurance providers rely upon clinician documentation – and therefore review of that data – for many key processes. Artificial intelligence (AI) and natural language processing (NLP) provide mechanisms for these data to be more thoroughly, repeatedly, and accurately analyzed to support in these activities. This webinar will elaborate on the value of NLP in these key areas, as well as discussing the fundamentals and essentials to look out for in an NLP solution.

In this webinar, IQVIA will present how health insurance providers can use clinically intelligent Natural Language Processing to improve compliance and accuracy in Risk Adjustment, improve Stars ratings through improved quality metrics, and drive health equity by identifying member-level social determinants of health.
