Healthcare fraud, waste, and abuse costs taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars per year, with global healthcare fraud accounting for about 6% of lost expenditure, estimated at $455 billion USD per year. While public sector agencies have historically been unsuccessful in controlling the growth of healthcare fraud, program integrity provisions such as those included in the U.S. Affordable Care Act and the Improper Payments Elimination and Recovery Act have driven these agencies to seek solutions to combat abuse.
Dun & Bradstreet can help agencies uncover the relationships among healthcare providers perpetrating fraudulent schemes through a customizable, rule-based methodology.
Agencies that transform into a data-inspired organization can drive efficiency and transparency across the government. To effectively leverage data as a strategic asset, you need data that is collected, organized, and used consistently across the organization—and analytics that can harness the power of the data into actionable insights that solve mission critical problems.
