Top Considerations when Choosing an Artificial Intelligence Project for Healthcare

The idea of employing artificial intelligence (AI) to improve organization performance is capturing the attention of healthcare leaders due to the technology’s ability to analyze and interpret complex unstructured data. However, before an organization jumps into using AI, it should carefully review the pros and cons. Although the technology has broad applicability, it is not appropriate for every endeavor.

Three Simple Ways to Leverage Technology to Reduce Denied Claims and Improve Practice Efficiencies

Most physician practices would agree that denied claims are a drain on resources and have a negative impact on cash flow and revenue. What practices may not realize is just how significant that impact can be. Nearly 90% of denied claims are avoidable and 50% to 65% are never reworked, which leaves a lot of money left on the table—money that could be used to bring on new staff, replace outdated technology, or make improvements to the office.1,2, When you factor in the cost to rework a denial—$25 not including time and overhead—the impact is even greater.3 While the causes

It is also a business model that can be harmful to patient care. According to an article published by Patient Engagement HIT, 64% of
