AI-Enabled Care Management Reduces Healthcare Spending by $32.2M
Almost four trillion dollars is spent on healthcare each year in the U.S., with most expenditures going to patients with chronic health conditions. Patients with chronic health conditions have a high rate of unnecessary visits to the emergency department (ED) and unplanned hospital admissions. UnityPoint Health sought to reduce costs by identifying patients with chronic health conditions at a higher risk for overutilizing healthcare services. By leveraging its analytics platform and augmented intelligence (AI), UnityPoint Health has been able to efficiently identify patients that could benefit from enrollment in its care management program.
