With the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) sounding the alarm on billions of potentially improper payments to Medicare Advantage organizations, ensuring full coding accuracy and compliance is more important than ever. Episource’s Chief Operating Officer, Erik Simonsen, explains how to leverage NLP in your second-level reviews to provide an efficient, cost-effective way to automatically detect errors missed by prior audits.
