Recently, we hosted an AI roadshow for NHSScotland in one of our AI labs. Over four days we held five interactive sessions to explore the current application of AI across industry and discuss where healthcare might benefit from the deployment of AI solutions. It was fantastic to see leaders in NHSScotland who were genuinely excited about the possibilities of AI and what it could achieve. Now, this isn’t to say that everyone who arrived believed AI could solve all their problems, indeed some were wary of the benefits of the technology being overhyped. However, without exception, every single person who attended the session highlighted that data was the future of healthcare and that AI can play a critical role in harnessing the power of that data.

AI: Finding the Fraud Needle in the Big Data Haystack

Article | April 16, 2020

With fraud losses accounting for about 3% of the nation’s overall health care spending each year, pharmacy benefit management firms would be wise to seize the opportunity to battle endemic fraud, waste, and abuse (FWA).
