WhiteHatAI is a division of Sharecare. WhiteHatAI is working with Special Investigations Units (SIU) for major U.S. payers who believe fraud alone in their organizations accounts for 10% of their total healthcare claims transaction volume. These units are currently recovering less than 2% of their fraud, leaving billions of dollars in losses.

The rules-based, retrospective, analytic systems currently used have proven insufficient in combating FWA. The market is missing the critical ingredient for fighting FWA prepayment; a flexible prepayment solution that moves investigative efforts from post-payment to prepayment. This need creates a tremendous opportunity. The market is searching for the prepayment Artificial Intelligence (AI) approach provided by WhiteHatAI. The combination of the maturity of AI technologies and increasing FWA makes this the perfect time for WhiteHatAI.
