World Health Insurance Innovation Congress 2020

Innovation for Growth and Protection

One of the main reasons for the constant increase in the cost of healthcare globally is overutilisation of medical services, also referred to as overtreatment, overuse and waste. Healthcare insurers are well aware of the risks and challenges that overutilisation brings and strategies to tackle it constantly implemented. However, in spite of all processes, systems and tools applied, significant rates of overutilisation are still evident in both high- and low-income countries, which constantly allows many patients to undergo inappropriate procedures, exposes them to unnecessary risk and strains healthcare systems funding.

Medical Reviews International (MedRev) a Utilisation Management and Claims Review organisation, conducted tens of thousands of clinical reviews by its network of international specialists and has developed a unique “Providers Nudging” approach that when used effectively - brings immediate results of reducing overutilisation levels and claims costs, and improving healthcare quality. Nir Kaminer, Founding partner of MedRev- Medical Reviews International, will attend World Health Insurance Innovation Congress 2020 (Jan. 15-16, London) and give a keynote speech on Increasing Healthcare Quality and Reducing costs: A Nudge Approach that Delivers Clear and Immediate Benefits.
