Prestigious International Awards Program Recognizes Ұ’s Outstanding Achievements in Machine Learning

March 24, 2022 – Ұ (NYSE:MPLN), a leading provider of data analytics and technology-enabled cost management, and payment and revenue integrity solutions to the U.S. healthcare industry, today announced that it has been selected as the winner of the “Healthcare Data Solution of the Year” award in the 3rd annual Data Breakthrough Awards program conducted by , an independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies, and products in the global data technology market today. 

Ұ was specifically recognized for its negotiation prioritization tool that helps its claims negotiators quickly identify the next best claim to work, leading to greater savings for customers and increased throughput for negotiators. The highly effective, predictive tool was built on years of quality data that fueled its machine learning model and immediately delivered results and enhanced productivity. Using a combination of machine learning and complex business rules, the machine learning models make use of the financials of a claim, its clinical factors, Ұ’s history of negotiating with a particular provider, and more, to assign a claim priority score that is used to automatically rank claims within the queue. 

“We are thrilled our data team is being honored by Data Breakthrough. The team’s machine learning models combined with their best-in-class change management efforts led to a nearly perfect roll out of the project and immediately helped the Negotiation Ұ team gain incredible efficiencies and cost savings,” said Michael Kim, Ұ Senior Vice President and CIO. “Our innovative healthcare cost management solutions emphasize a legacy of strong payor and provider relationships. In this case, not only have we improved results and team morale, but the negotiation prioritization tool is another step toward our mission of delivering fairness, efficiency, and affordability to U.S. healthcare.”   

“Ұ has created a highly predictive tool that gives negotiators a path toward the highest yield cases while maintaining overall quality and value-delivery based on human inputs – something the predictive model could not factor into its limited view of success alone. Congratulations on being our choice for ‘Healthcare Data Solution of the Year,” said James Johnson, Managing Director, Data Breakthrough.
