Cotiviti, a leader in data-driven healthcare solutions, has introduced a COVID-19 Outbreak Tracker to map potentially hidden “hot spots” across the U.S. The map leverages data from the company’s new Caspian Insights platform—the most complete, enriched longitudinal healthcare data reserve in the United States—to predict areas of outbreak at the state and county levels that may otherwise go undetected.

“To address something as unprecedented and turbulent as this pandemic, the entire healthcare industry had to respond swiftly, strategically, and collaboratively, bringing the best minds and innovations to meet this challenge,” said Emad Rizk, M.D., chairman, president, and CEO of Cotiviti. “Cotiviti has been working diligently to mitigate the impact of COVID-19, from providing our health plan customers with critical tools and information to applying our deep analytics expertise and answering some of the biggest questions around the pandemic, such as which communities may be next to feel the impact. Equally important, as states and counties reopen under social distancing rules, it will be critical to maintain active surveillance of any early spikes that may be predictive of COVID-19 resurgence.”
Cotiviti’s COVID-19 Outbreak Tracker prospectively identifies, seven to ten days prior, geographic areas that may see heightened infection outbreaks based on indicators common to most COVID-19 cases. By analyzing COVID-19 screening procedures across millions of medical claims processed daily by Cotiviti’s Caspian Insights platform and comparing against historical trends, Cotiviti’s map can identify future instances of outbreak with a high degree of accuracy, helping the healthcare industry shift its response from reactive to proactive.
Recognizing the intense pressure facing all healthcare organizations to accomplish more on even tighter timelines, Cotiviti has also built a comprehensive COVID-19 Resource Center for health plans, as well as providers and other healthcare stakeholders. The resource center contains news, regulatory updates, and best practices for health plans such as claim editing and combating fraud, waste, and abuse. It will be continually updated with the latest information and research to help organizations respond effectively to this crisis while delivering high-quality patient care.
Cotiviti is also bringing its deep data science and payer industry knowledge to the COVID-19 Healthcare Coalition, a private sector-led organization working to combat the virus. The initiative unites leaders from top healthcare, technology, academic, and nonprofit entities—such as Boston Medical Center, The Pew Charitable Trusts, and Google—to collaborate on ways to flatten the infection curve and support healthcare delivery with a unique combination of best practices, clinical insights, and real-time data.
