11 Oct MGMA: Predictive Analytics Is Now a Business Necessity for Healthcare
“Probe audits are out and advanced statistics are in.” That was the message delivered by Frank Cohen, director of analytics at Clearwater, Florida-based Doctors Management, as he spoke to the Medical Group Management Association’s annual conference in Anaheim, California.
Cohen told the group, “What we want to be able to do is predict which patient is most likely to not show up, because we want to be able to get ahead of that. We want to predict who’s going to be a whistleblower, who’s going to quit, the likelihood of someone suing. We want to go beyond the idea of clinical research and clinical work, to be able to predict beyond that.”
