Episode 36: Will we ever get payors and providers to speak the same love language? Russ Thomas of Availity thinks we can – and has a roadmap to do so
In the U.S., payors and providers need each other to deliver the highest-quality care at the lowest cost—but they don’t always get along.

Russ and Justin discuss how technology and a new perspective might be able to simplify two of biggest points of friction: utilization management and authorization workflow.

Can AI and other tech solve payors’ yield problems? And is a single-payor system really the answer to our healthcare woes?
