“I chatted with several healthcare leaders who are struggling with insurance claim denials,” Bret said. “Payors are not even providing a valid basis for claim denials; they are just denying claims. AI and use of robotics and web bots are going to pay huge dividends for our healthcare clients, particularly in insurance claim denials. We’ll be able to do a lot more for less, and help drive revenue to their bottom line.”
