S3 Ep53: Predicting Healthcare Needs—featuring Lisa Collins

Time is critical in healthcare, but so is data analysis. 

Lisa Collins, the CEO of Optum Advisory Services and responsible for the payer, provider, and strategy and growth teams, discusses how they are developing their algorithms to predict the healthcare needs in a community. Today’s healthcare system is based on adapting to the patient volume changes they might get at any given time, and there’s a labor challenge to be tackled. Lisa also shares a quick dive into the revenue cycle at Optum and how they are deploying the technology. Every healthcare company now must concentrate on removing the administrative burden from the physicians’ shoulders. 

Tune in to listen to this quick chat about predicting tools in healthcare!
