Room: Innovation & Solutions Theater in Expo
Session Number: ST04
The process for reviewing requests for medical treatment is one of the most constant elements in workers’ compensation and disability management, and it has remained relatively unchanged for years. Common criticisms are it’s too manual, highly retrospective, inefficient, and at times overwhelming.
Conduent medical claims management expert Carol Valentic, BSN, will share how Conduent is applying new digital technologies and intelligent automation to reinvent the UR process with the goal of creating an interconnected pathway for requests, reviews, and authorizations that are fully integrated with bill review. You’ll hear the outcomes experienced by claims organizations who have adopted this new approach, including less administrative work and more time to focus on patient care and recovery.
