MSP Recovery Announces LifeWallet Implementation Program at Cano Health Medical Centers
CORAL GABLES, Fla., Aug. 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MSP Recovery, Inc. (NASDAQ: MSPR) (“MSPR”, “MSP Recovery” or the “Company”) a Medicare, Medicaid, commercial, and secondary payer reimbursement recovery and technology leader, today announced that LifeWallet Powered by MSP Recovery is going to pilot its Health Safety Technology program at Cano Health (NYSE: CANO).
Cano Health delivers personalized, value-based primary care to more than 270,000 members and operates primary care medical centers for seniors and supports affiliated providers in eight states and Puerto Rico.
The program implementation will encompass a pilot of the LifeWallet portal at one of Cano Health’s locations in South Florida. It will allow for both Cano Health and its patients to identify, in real-time, prior medical and pharmaceutical history as well as payer information to verify the correct payer(s) financially responsible for the services provided. The integration is expected to provide even greater efficiency for Cano Health and may lead to incremental clinical benefits while reducing costs.
LifeWallet, powered by MSP Recovery’s sophisticated data analytics, launched in January and was initially designed to help first responders and healthcare providers to quickly and easily access patient medical histories when they are needed most. As MSPR was developing LifeWallet, it was discovered that the data being captured could also provide substantial additional benefits to patients, providers and payers across the country. LifeWallet enables informed decision-making and improved patient care to help save lives.
LifeWallet will incorporate its Health Safety Technology for Cano Health, including biometric (facial recognition) check-ins, through a pilot program that includes the integration of LifeWallet technology to prevent improper documentation of medical information, which often leads to improper billing. LifeWallet may help Cano thereby prevent fraud, waste, and abuse.
LifeWallet is also part of MSP Recovery’s “Chase to Pay” platform, providing real-time analytics at the point of care, helping identify the primary insurer, assisting providers in receiving reasonable and customary rates for accident-related treatment, shortening MSPR’s collection time frame, and increasing revenue visibility and predictability.
“We’re honored to implement LifeWallet at Cano Health,” said John H. Ruiz, Founder and CEO of MSP Recovery. “A growing number of leading healthcare providers and their patients see the value of using LifeWallet to locate, organize and easily access medical records stored across multiple platforms,” he said. “Our vision for LifeWallet is clearly resonating across the healthcare industry. The growth of LifeWallet has far exceeded our expectations.”
“We are focused on making healthcare more connected and accessible,” said Dr. Marlow Hernandez, Co-Founder, Chairman, and CEO of Cano Health. “I’m enthusiastic about piloting this technology at one of our centers and finding ways that we can integrate it into our care delivery system. We pride ourselves on leveraging cutting-edge technology, and LifeWallet has the potential to make a significant impact for our patients.”
