The challenge

Overwhelmed with repetitive and mundane data entry tasks, WVU Medicine needed a breakthrough automation solution that would not only improve the day-to-day lives of their workers but would also drive impact, deliver long-term value and enable them to better focus on providing excellent care for their patients.

The solution

WVU Medicine worked with Olive to add 48 digital FTEs to integrate with their EHR and handle the repetitive claims tasks — increasing their daily claims status checks from 400 to almost 30,000 per day. This dramatically impacted cash acceleration and freed WVU Medicine to upskill human employees — assigning them new, more fulfilling responsibilities that have a greater impact on revenue and the patient experience. Following go-live, Olive also reduced net days in A/R from 65 to under 50 days.

”Automation taking over claims work not only has improved efficiency and revenue, but also has improved humans’ work because they’re not doing tedious jobs anymore. AI will revolutionize medicine and the delivery of care, and I believe robotic process automation will enable health systems to stay competitive in the market.”
