The NovoHealth Dental platform uses NovoDynamics AI to automatically analyze dental insurance claims in real time at enterprise scale. NovoHealth Dental rapidly assures claim quality; accurately supports clinical assessments; and reliably detects fraud, waste, and abuse.

The NovoHealth Dental Platform

Assuring Claim Quality

NovoHealth Dental immediately analyzes each and every incoming claim before it is routed through the payer’s system. It automatically:

  • Identifies Attachments including various types of radiographs, photographs, charts, correspondence, and notes.
  • Checks Procedure Codes and ascertains whether appropriate evidence has been provided, including radiographs showing the relevant anatomical structures.
  • Triggers Alerts that can be used to instantaneously inform dental offices if any additional information or documentation is required prior to claim processing.
  • Fosters Goodwill by reducing friction between payers and providers.

NovoHealth Dental found more than 76% of claims submitted to a major U.S. dental payer had insufficient documentation.

Supporting Clinical Review

NovoHealth Dental analyzes images and available data to assess medical necessity. It immediately routes clean, compliant claims to the payer’s system for approval and reimbursement. Claims with issues are prioritized for review and are only routed to professional resources when necessary.

  • Pre-Processes Attachments, automatically identifying radiographs, photographs, charts, and documents. NovoHealth Dental classifies radiograph types, segments and identifies teeth, pinpoints anatomical structures, and verifies that the relevant anatomy is included.
  • Uses Even Low-Quality Radiograph Images from screenshots and other non-diagnostic quality files (does not require DICOM files).
  • Performs Accurate Disease Assessments evaluating whether submitted procedures and treatments meet specific insurance plan guidelines.
  • Highlights and Annotates Radiographs to facilitate rapid review.
  • Supports Clinical Decisions with the consistent, objective statistical analyses of our dental AI, which is trained by teams of licensed dentists, including board-certified specialists.

NovoHealth Dental uncovered tens of millions of dollars in potential savings for a major U.S. payer — more than 25X the savings human reviewers had found in the set of claims.

Reducing F/W/A Costs

Image Similarity Detection

NovoHealth Dental compares each incoming radiograph to all available images to ascertain whether it may have been previously submitted. NovoHealth Dental:

  • Recognizes All Similar Images whether they’re identical or may have been manipulated (e.g., cropped, rotated, flipped, skewed, or with adjustments to contrast, color, blurring, etc.)
  • Can Perform Cross-Payer Analyses to uncover radiograph re-use among submissions to multiple insurance plans.
  • Minimizes False Positives by considering all available evidence including metadata, claim data, and information from additional sources to help distinguish likely fraud from legitimate re-use or clerical errors.

Outlier Identification

NovoHealth Dental can help improve focused review processes for payers, as well as reduce risk for DSOs and group practices, by detecting if a provider’s behavior significantly deviates from their peer group or if a provider’s procedure patterns appear suspicious. NovoHealth Dental automatically:

  • Creates More Relevant Provider Peer Groups than traditional systems by integrating external data with a variety of practice and specialty features including more geographic, economic, and population metrics.
  • Performs Hundreds of Tests on each claim to determine if any procedures are anomalous. If one of the tests fails, the claim is flagged for review.

NovoHealth Dental Image Similarity Detection tracked the same radiograph submitted to the same payer by 11 different providers in 6 different states for 10 different patients in 14 different claims over 4 years. Read the full story …
