The Promise of Real-Time Adjudication: Can AI deliver?

Product not yet rated

Recorded On: 10/06/2021

As Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems, capable of accurate radiographic diagnosis, begin to penetrate the dental industry, carriers have emerged among the earliest adopters of the technology. The benefits of computer vision-powered utilization management and review – efficiency, automation, comprehensive claim examination, fraud detection and, of course, real-time adjudication – have been extolled by every dental AI startup bringing utilization management/utilization review (UM/UR) solutions.  Though real-world application of the technology too limited and nascent to have produced clear evidence of those benefits, most insurers – even those who have yet to see the technology in action – seem willing to grant that, at least in principle, AI holds considerable promise for the future of claim adjudication. The question is: Could that promising future actually include real-time claims adjudication? The Dental AI Council (DAIC) would like to try to answer that question with the help of members of the DAIC leadership committee, who will bring their dental care, insurance carrier, and AI experience to bear. They will address:  

  • Benefits of real-time adjudication for providers, patients and carriers  
  • Why AI holds promise for real-time adjudication  
  • Logistical impediments to real-time adjudication  
  • Regulatory impediments to real-time adjudication  
  • How to overcome impediments  
  • Steps that can be taken to facilitate a real-time reality
