Work Group Spotlight: NDEDIC Work Group 3 - The Role of A.I. in Claims Processing 

NDEDIC's newest Work Group is responsible for defining a mechanism to annotate a claim related to whether Claim Review was performed, by whom it was reviewed, identification of the review's details, and the review summary's recommendation.

Work Group 3 will also define a mechanism to return the same information in responses to claims (claim status or ERA), define identities of claim reviewers (A.I. processes, human reviewers, etc.), and explore the creation of technical guidance documents and registries. The Work Group's leadership will summarize progress made to date and discuss upcoming initiatives, including NDEDIC's newly released technical guidance document entitled, "NDEDIC Claim Review Status Annotation Guide Companion to the X12/005010X224A2 Health Care Claim: Dental (837)."
