ITASCA, IL (PRWEB) February 12, 2015
Discovery Health Partners, a division of LaunchPoint, is offering a webinar on “Best Practices in Mass Tort Identification and Recovery Strategies” on February 24 at 2 p.m. EST. The registration link is available here. Elizabeth A. Longo, General Counsel for Discovery Health Partners, will discuss emerging processes and technologies that automate and streamline the mass tort recovery efforts of payers and can result in millions of dollars recovered. In addition, attendees will learn how to:
Identify members who have received medical care and a settlement as a result of an allegedly defective drug or medical device.
Understand the basic processes for obtaining mass tort recoveries.
Distinguish the identification and recovery process required for traditional subrogation/TPL cases vs. mass tort cases.
Recognize recent mass tort cases and their impact on recoveries.
“Our webinar will address strategies for giving payers a more proactive and systematic approach to mass tort identification and recoveries through a combination of technology, analytics, and legal expertise,” said Longo. “Many recovery opportunities associated with mass tort litigation are often overlooked, but hold huge implications for payers. When you consider some plans could have hundreds or thousands of members impacted by a single mass tort (such as by a defective pelvic mesh or hip implant), the financial impact could be staggering.”
Discovery Health Partners recently added a Mass Tort solution to Discovery Subrogation, which is part of the Discovery Payment Integrity Suite of software and solutions. The Mass Tort solution leverages a proprietary cloud-based healthcare analytics platform for data integration, identification, case management, and reporting.
