MultiPlan Corporation (NYSE:MPLN) (“MultiPlan” or the “Company”), a leading value-added provider of data analytics and technology-enabled end-to-end cost management, payment and revenue integrity solutions to the U.S. healthcare industry, announces Ben Perryman, Chief Data Scientist, Vice President of Data Services and Evan Pollack, Chief Medical Officer, Medical Audit and Review Solutions to discuss the combined approach to using both artificial and human intelligence in payment integrity efforts at the NHCAA Institute for Health Care Fraud Prevention’s Annual Training Conference in Orlando, FL on November 17.
Perryman will present “The Marriage of AI and HI in Pursuing Payment Integrity,” and will be joined by Pollack to discuss how to avoid common pitfalls that arise when implementing artificial intelligence and machine learning payment integrity efforts and identify best practices for the integration of machine learning and AI techniques with human intelligence. The session will also include examples of how the use of both human and artificial intelligence helped recover costs and a specific case study where HI and AI drove successful payment integrity outcomes.
“Finding new and creative ways to combine a variety of machine learning techniques with the most valuable asset at any healthcare payor–its people–is the best way to maximize payment integrity results,” stated Perryman. “We will dive into proven and new and emerging ways to bring a healthcare payor’s human intelligence and artificial intelligence together to drive key insights and better decision-making, all in an effort to drive down costs and improve the U.S. healthcare system.”
