Technology Innovations to Inspire a Better Healthcare System

We are working across the industry to deliver healthcare innovations that help our customers flourish.

Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) in healthcare has the potential for a vast number of applications from increased personalization of healthcare to improved decision making. AI and machine learning are creating new efficiencies, such as mammograms that can be co-read by machines, reducing the impact of human error. Mostly impactfully, AI can significantly impact the financial and administrative aspects of healthcare by reducing waste and manual processes. At Change Healthcare, we are embedding AI into our solutions to reduce repetitive manual work, create operational efficiencies, and make healthcare more cost-effective.

AI in Healthcare



Blockchain technology can help improve the efficiency, transparency, and security of the data reconciliation activities that plague the healthcare system. In January 2018, we launched the first enterprise-scale blockchain network in healthcare, allowing customers to track claims submissions and remittances in real time. By exploring the many uses for blockchain within our financial, clinical, and engagement solutions, we aim to provide cost-effective data integrity for high-volume transactions.

Price Transparency

As part of our strategy to help payers and providers improve engagement, we offer technologies and services to enable greater transparency. With increasing industry focus on the consumer experience, satisfaction, and rising out-of-pocket responsibility for healthcare costs, payers, providers, and employers need to empower consumers to help them understand their choices, manage costs proactively, and become smarter "value" shoppers of healthcare. To make this retail-like experience happen, healthcare cost and quality data must be as transparent and accessible as prices and reviews are for other consumer goods and services.
