During my internship with Iowa Hospital Association (IHA), I have been linking information submitted into IPOP to ANSI 835 payment data and using data analytics to determine the average time an insurance company takes to pay a claim and the average percentage of claims paid by the insurance company. My project is part of a pilot program that will help IHA determine the value of a new data program which, if adopted, will allow IHA member hospitals to track that MCOs are appropriately reimbursing them for provided services.
