Discovery Health Partners’ case open logic machine learning initiative receives FutureEdge 50 award from IDG

Itasca, IL – December 16, 2019 – Discovery Health Partners has been named an honoree of a 2020 FutureEdge 50 award from IDG’s CIO. This prestigious honor is given to organizations that are pushing the edge with new technologies to advance their business for the future. Discovery will accept its award at the AGENDA20 Conference held March 23 – 25 at the Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort & Spa in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.

Discovery’s case open logic initiative was piloted earlier this year to test machine learning as part of its claims ranking process within its Subrogation practice. Already a leader in analytics-powered technology solutions for some of the top health payers in the country, Discovery saw an opportunity to leverage its decade of case outcomes data to fuel a subrogation model that eliminates hours of manual work, results in more accurate case identification, and reduces member friction. Discovery is implementing improvements and enhancements and intends to roll out similar machine learning capabilities to other lines of business such as Data Mining, Clinical Audit and Coordination of Benefits (COB).

“Discovery’s data science team has been blazing new trails in the payment integrity industry through advanced analytics and machine learning capabilities,” stated Discovery CIO Dan Iantorno. “Combining technology innovation with our team’s decades of experience in the health payer space is at the heart of how we deliver game-changing results for our customers.”

“The organizations in the FutureEdge 50 are doing exciting things that would have been unimaginable just a few years ago. For example, there’s a project using blockchain and quantum computing to establish trust; an indoor navigation system; and many uses of AI/ML for insights and efficiency,” said Anne McCrory, group vice president, customer experience and operations, events, and the FutureEdge and AGENDA20 conference chair. “We are honored to showcase these innovations and many others as we enter into a new era of sophistication with cloud, devices, and environments powering the technology-driven business.”
