Abstract: Administrative costs are a significant component of health care costs in the US market. Recent estimates suggest that administrative costs are approaching $1 Trillion annually, with $250 billion of that spending described as “waste.” Administrative costs are an area where AI has been proposed frequently as a potential solution. In this talk, we’ll examine the question of whether AI can truly achieve this goal, or do we need to address more fundamental issues in the market before AI can achieve its full potential as a solution.
