9 October 2020, Singapore - Leading cloud technology service provider, Xtremax in collaboration with award-winning deep-tech startup, UCARE.AI has won a contract to develop and maintain a Claim Analytics System (CAS) for the Ministry of Health (MOH).

This multi-million project is part of the ministry's efforts in improving the overall state of medical-related claims processing. The planned IT infrastructure will leverage Xtremax's latest cloud-based innovation combined with the power of extensive machine-learning by the specialist in predictive AI, UCARE.AI. The cloud-based CAS platform aims to improve upon several existing areas such as curbing long payment cycles as well as addressing the lack of real-time communicative means between the relevant entities. This initiative will further propel the digital adoption of MOH in enhancing the delivery of its services.

The CAS was built to address aberrations to the processes in the claims to better facilitate the traffic between medical entities and MOH. By implementing the system, it optimizes the claims procedure by flagging out outlier medical claims that do not meet the appropriate financial schemes or medical plans such as over-servicing, over-charging, fraud as well as possible abuse cases. This will allow prioritization for validated claims to have a timely approval.

Following several successful partnerships with other entities, Xtremax is confident that they can implement the background architecture for a system that will greatly increase efficiency of the claim requests for the MOH and all the entities involved. “Xtremax's partnership with Ministry of Health and UCARE.AI will enable us to improve the claims outcomes and expedite decision making for various health financial schemes starting with MediShield Life, MediSave and CHAS on a national scale,” said Denise Kee, Director at Xtremax.

UCARE.AI's proprietary deep learning algorithms, built of cloud-based microservices architecture provides high availability, fault tolerance and real-time processing of high-volume predictions to further increase the accuracy of outlier detections. Neal Liu, Founder and CTO of UCARE.AI said, “Our revolutionary solution will enable better claim evaluations through early, accurate detection of anomalies. The partnership between UCARE.AI, Xtremax and MOH indicates the government’s confidence in adopting new, innovative technology to optimize processes with the ultimate goal of improving the sustainability of Singapore’s public insurance system."
