The Future Of AI & Automation In Healthcare

The Future Of AI & Automation In Healthcare

The rapid evolution of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) is revolutionizing the healthcare industry, particularly in areas once dominated by manual processes and rudimentary automation. Operations, a significant segment of healthcare often sidelined by the more glamorous realms of drug discovery and preliminary disease diagnosis, is now at the forefront of this transformation. 

For providers eyeing a future bolstered by these technologies, there are intriguing developments to consider, especially with the potential offered by Adonis's AI technology in refining the revenue cycle management (RCM).

The Surge of AI in the Healthcare Revenue Cycle

Despite AI's massive growth in healthcare, operational applications like "administrative workflow assistance" have only recently begun to make waves. But as Grant Messick aptly points out, machine learning is reinventing the healthcare revenue cycle. The current scenario shows about 40% of healthcare systems still untouched by automation in their revenue cycle workflows. However, this is about to change as over 60% of them are poised to integrate automation by year-end. With the unfolding of new technologies, even intricate RCM tasks will soon be under the AI domain.

Differentiating AI and RPA in Revenue Cycle Management

There's an evident mix-up in the healthcare sector, where nearly 60% of leaders equate Robotic Process Automation (RPA) to AI. While RPA bots perform basic, linear tasks without adaptive intelligence, AI and ML systems adapt and make decisions based on new information. This distinction becomes clear when we contrast typical RPA tasks, like detecting elements on a screen or checking authorizations using scripts, with AI-powered activities. 

AI can learn ever-changing payer requirements, actively integrate the latest payer site information back into EHRs, predict payment behaviors, and even interpret data from insurance cards using ML vision. The versatility of AI and ML is unparalleled, especially when combined with RPA, making these solutions tailormade for the complexities of RCM.

The Imperative for Tailored AI-Driven Automation

Traditional methods, such as manual processes, EHR system add-ons, consultants, and RPAs, fall short when gauging performance against crucial KPIs like net days in accounts receivable (A/R), aged A/R, and initial denial rates. Challenges such as prior authorization have only intensified over the years. Adding to the fray, the COVID-19 pandemic accentuated existing financial pressures and problems, compelling many to consider AI and ML platforms.

The advantages of AI and ML in automation are multifold:

  1. Proactive Data Capture and Analysis: Unlike RPA, where each bot follows a strict instruction set, AI and ML systems efficiently gather and assess current operational data, leading to a full capture of essential workflows linked to AI algorithms.
  2. Adaptability: AI-driven automation is ceaselessly evolving and adjusting, ensuring that workflows remain relevant and efficient. Its ability to learn and recalibrate sets it apart from traditional automation methods.
  3. Scientific Precision: Deep learning, a subset of ML, introduces new possibilities by providing superior statistical and scientific rigor, making AI automation solutions reliable and equipped for the future.
  4. Collaboration with Human Experts: While AI and ML bring efficiency, human expertise remains invaluable. Professionals play a pivotal role in training AI systems, addressing anomalies, and refining automation workflows.

Harnessing Adonis's AI for RCM Excellence

In today's dynamic healthcare landscape, the intersection of AI, automation, and revenue cycle management (RCM) is witnessing unprecedented advancements. Central to this transformative shift is the role of innovative technologies like Adonis's AI.

For healthcare providers who are continually striving for operational efficiency, the allure of AI and automation is undeniable. These technological breakthroughs promise not only improved processes but also the possibility of redefining patient care and financial management. Among the leaders in this arena, Adonis's AI technology stands out, marking a paradigm shift in how healthcare professionals approach RCM.
