About the Webinar

Healthcare payers are in solidarity with providers, working countless hours to manage the unprecedented crisis. Ranging from reduced utilization management to fast track reimbursements, payers are supporting frontline healthcare professionals by all means necessary.

However, they must formulate long-term strategies to manage population health beyond the immediate crisis. Unemployment rates are skyrocketing and a recession is round the corner. The pandemic also isn’t likely to subside anytime soon. It is imperative to find ways to cut back on the cost of care and encourage virtual care technologies to move forward.

Join us for a live virtual session with leading payer experts to learn about the key impacts of COVID-19 and assess the path overcoming the crisis.

You will learn

  • Improving risk navigation during the pandemic through coding and quality gap closure
  • Reducing costs of care amidst Medicaid enrollment increase due to unemployment
  • Benefits of embracing virtual health technologies such as improved documentation
  • Establishing complete interoperability as a long-term solution to the healthcare crisis
