Podcast: Cotiviti CEO Emad Rizk, M.D. on payment integrity and interoperability

Achieving true payment accuracy and eliminating waste in healthcare requires not only ensuring that claims are billed and paid appropriately, but also factoring a patient's risk profile and quality outcomes into healthcare payments. That was one topic of conversation as Cotiviti CEO Emad Rizk, M.D., joined The Incrementalist host Dr. Nick van Terheyden for a conversation on how to transform healthcare waste into better patient care. Listen to the podcast right here on the Cotiviti blog.

Tune in to the interview as Dr. Rizk discusses:

  • How Cotiviti improves payer/provider relationships by enabling health plans to pay claims correctly
  • How patients most vulnerable to COVID-19 were hurt by lack of interoperability in healthcare during the pandemic
  • How collaboration between public and private sectors is improving data sharing among healthcare organizations

For more from Dr. Rizk on how payer-provider partnerships are helping pave the way for better healthcare payments and outcomes, read his recent article in Managed Healthcare Executive co-written by Brian Setzer, executive vice president of enterprise planning and operations for Highmark Health.
