The article focuses on a report about instant claims adjudication published in "American Medical News." It showed that gynecologists are more successful with instant claims adjudication than any other group of specialists, with 89% of gynecology claims resolved in less than 10 seconds. It cites observations about the lack of interest on real-time adjudication, such as the complication of implementing a program and the long period of processing claims.
