Enabling New Finance Options with Health Credit Outcomes

Studies show that medical bills are the primary cause of bankruptcy. Too often, high interest credit cards are used to pay for doctor visits. PokitDok CEO Lisa Maki and Technical Evangelist John Riney will demonstrate new options for financial institutions with an interest in healthcare, designed by a team of data scientists with a deep academic background in math and graph theory. Understand emerging billing dynamics and uncover development tools/models that help mitigate financial risk. Create financing possibilities for expensive, non-acute procedures that can fall below the deductible level, like orthopedic surgery, imagery & cosmetic treatments.

What You’ll Learn

  • Eligibility & Claims – learn about two things you must include to successfully complete a healthcare transaction. Lucky for you, there’s an API for that.
  • Healthcare lending isn’t just for Botox anymore. Health-specific risk scores can be used to make informed lending options available to cover expensive, non-acute medical procedures.
  • Costly legal proceedings are the last resort to collect unpaid bills. Learn how publishing costs up front, identifying financial resources & building an ecommerce infrastructure greatly reduces risk.
