With Partnership, Baker Tilly Aims to Translate Data for Health Care Clients

Chicago-based Baker Tilly, an IPA 100 firm, has launched a partnership to help health care clients translate data into written language.

Baker Tilly will use the Wordsmith platform of Automated Insights, a provider of natural language generation software. The platform automates written insights that note key trends in data, allowing hospitals and health systems to quickly identify missed reimbursements, incorrect coding and opportunities to fix human errors.

“Using the Wordsmith application’s natural language generation in our analytic delivery allows us to translate complex data into actionable information for health care revenue cycle users to quickly put to work, without requiring rigorous analytics training,” says Mike Duke, principal with Baker Tilly’s health care consulting practice. “Serving up the information users need in a way they can readily understand eliminates the time they would otherwise spend hunting through the data to find it.”
