COVID-19 Task Force

Pulselight’s COVID-19 Task Force is doing the following:

  • Finding fraud, waste, and abuse in public healthcare programs, where resources are scarce, and populations are most at risk. It’s a sad truth that amidst tragedy, bad actors will create new schemes to abuse emergency policies and relaxed billing rules. Pulselight is helping to stop them in their tracks. Measure and understand the way your program or plan pays for services from multiple dimensions: procedure code, provider type, specialty, claim types
  • Using healthcare data to monitor the safety and wellbeing of those most in need in our public system, including the elderly, disabled and developmentally disadvantaged. To do this, Pulselight is detecting adverse incidents, diagnosis spikes, penetration clusters and the impact of isolation.
  • Highlighting clusters of high-risk patients and penetration. Once new program bulletins or laws are enacted, we can track impact on public health, cost and resources. We can trace contact spread by location and individuals.
  • Using AI techniques to prioritize findings and build explainable, predictive models to measure risk at the patient, provider or program level.


Payment Integrity

Through a simple web browser-based interface, our suite of Payment Integrity tools allows you to:

  • Measure and understand the way your program or plan pays for services from multiple dimensions: procedure code, provider type, specialty, claim types
  • Find efficiencies or deficits in your provider network or reimbursement structure
  • Make informed decisions regarding reimbursement or policy changes, and then track the effects over time
  • Uncover geographic hotspots or areas with service deficiencies
