71% of healthcare execs to invest in AI over the next 3 years
Fraud, waste and abuse is a two-pronged problem for healthcare insurers and plan members. Annual losses are enormous (more than $300 billion), and efforts to curtail FWA can redirect staff attention while damaging relationships with good providers and clients. Artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to help healthcare payers address those vulnerabilities and detect FWA.
PYMNTS’ research shows that awareness of and interest in AI has grown substantially among healthcare executives in recent years. The AI in focus: the healthcare technology roadmap reports PYMNTS’s findings from a survey of 100 healthcare executives about their plans for AI investment.
