Cotiviti CEO Emad Rizk, M.D., to Speak at HLTH Conference on Oct. 28 in Las Vegas
Leading physician executive to address how payer-provider collaboration improves billing and payment for all stakeholders


ATLANTA, October 10, 2019 – Emad Rizk, M.D., president and chief executive officer of Cotiviti, has been selected as a featured panelist at the HLTH conference. For the panel, titled “Transforming Claims, Billing & Payment,” Dr. Rizk will draw on his more than 30 years of experience in both the provider and payer sectors to share insights into concrete ways healthcare leaders can leverage data to drive transformative change.

"Payer-provider collaboration is the foundation of financial and clinical success in healthcare, and using analytics to gain valuable insights contained in the universe of available data is key to supporting this convergence," said Dr. Rizk. "By bringing together health plans, physicians, investors, and government agencies, the HLTH conference serves as an important opportunity for stakeholders to align around the strategic and operational changes necessary for true innovation in healthcare."

By meeting the industry’s growing demand for timely information on quality, cost, and utilization, Cotiviti is uniting pivotal stakeholders and providing the data and insights needed to go beyond the status quo—moving the needle on improving financial performance and ultimately healthcare quality.

Along with Dr. Rizk, the panel will bring together senior executives from Premera Blue Cross, Softheon, and Avalon Healthcare Solutions to discuss the overhaul of traditional revenue cycle management and the future of payer-provider partnership, while highlighting real-world examples of how merging clinical and financial data will allow healthcare organizations to fund innovations in patient care. The session, which is part of the “Taking Care of Business” track, will take place Monday, Oct. 28, 2019, at 8:30 am PT.

The HLTH conference is expected to bring more than 5,000 attendees, including more than 300 speakers, 850 CEOs and founders, and 200 analysts and journalists together to highlight bold perspectives and develop unique solutions to tackle the issues plaguing the healthcare industry.
