Achieving true payment accuracy and eliminating waste in healthcare requires not only ensuring that claims are billed and paid appropriately, but also factoring a patient's risk profile and quality outcomes into healthcare payments. That was one topic of conversation as Cotiviti CEO Emad Rizk, M.D., joined The Incrementalist host Dr. Nick van Terheyden for a conversation on how to transform healthcare waste into better patient care. Listen to the podcast right here on the Cotiviti blog.
Tune in to the interview as Dr. Rizk discusses:
- How Cotiviti improves payer/provider relationships by enabling health plans to pay claims correctly
- How patients most vulnerable to COVID-19 were hurt by lack of interoperability in healthcare during the pandemic
- How collaboration between public and private sectors is improving data sharing among healthcare organizations
