Data analytics can decrease denials

Oct 3, 2016 | Uncategorized

If you’ve ever had a health care claim denied, you know how much of an exhausting process it can be to re-file, await another decision and deal accordingly with the results. Luckily, the use of data analytics is leading to a drastic decrease in claim denials and, in the process, actually increasing the revenues for various healthcare organizations.

According to a survey conducted by Advisory Board’s 2015 Revenue Cycle Benchmarking, the most common reason for a medical claim to be denied is for a technical mistake. A technical mistake could include something as small as an error in the social security number you list!

Business intelligence through data analytics can go a long way in saving health care organizations money as well. The more efficient the health claim process is, the less it will cost both the patient and the provider.
