Health Care Reinvented: Fighting Health Care Fraud

Interview by Audrey Russo and Jonathan Kersting

Health care fraud costs the U.S. more than $380 billion dollars a year. Yes, $380 billion! For the next episode of Allegheny Health Network and Highmark's Health Care Reinvented podcast series, we explore how Highmark is using bleeding-edge technology to fight the fraud.

Kurt Spear, Vice President of Financial Investigation and Provider Review at Highmark, and Musheer Ahmed, PhD, CEO and Founder of Codoxo, detail what types of fraud are most prevalent and what to do if you fall victim. They will also overview how Codoxo arms Highmark with forensic artificial intelligence tools that identify problems and suspicious behavior earlier than traditional techniques, which helps ensure our scarce healthcare dollars go to real patient care.

Learn more about Highmark's full efforts to fight fraud and how technologies of all kinds are helping minimize the threats. It's a fascinating listen.
