RevSpring’s April Wilson to Speak at SAS Analytics Experience Conference

LIVONIA, Mich. (Sept 5, 2018) – How does data analysis and testing provide a sentimental connection like that of comfort food to individuals responsible for strengthening their organization’s patient financial experience? April Wilson, vice president of marketing and analytics at RevSpring, will answer this question at the annual SAS Analytics Experience Conference held in San Diego, CA on Tuesday, Sept. 18. Wilson’s session, “Insight as Comfort Food: Using SAS® Visual Analytics and SAS® Viya® to Strengthen Relationships,” will showcase cases studies on how analytics enhances the patient financial experience and will provide insight into innovative uses of SAS Viya.

Unlike most healthcare organizations that use SAS tools primarily for strategy, product development, and customer analysis, Wilson will explain how these tools can also be used to predict a patient’s propensity to pay, as well as using various modes of communications at different points of the revenue cycle for a more profitable outcome.

“Our dashboards, powered by SAS, are really filling the role of comfort food for the healthcare organizations we serve,” Wilson said. “This data hub is where they’re going to view patient payment trends, view and forecast their revenue cycle, and examine what’s going on with their patient communications and financial response data.”

In the healthcare sector, visual analytics and forecasting applications are primarily used for claims denial management or clinical care; however, RevSpring has pioneered the development of advanced analytics and machine learning to enhance the patient financial experience. RevSpring’s analytics team also uses SAS analytics tools to heavily guide strategy and educate their clients during standard quarterly reviews – a unique offering in the revenue cycle industry.

The Analytics Experience conference gathers data enthusiasts, business and IT leaders, analytics professionals, and data scientists – from every industry. Wilson is an invited speaker at the conference, and RevSpring is featured by SAS as a model for innovation.
