The U.S. government loses billions of dollars every year from Medicare and Medicaid fraud, not only as a result of paying falsely-reported claims, but from the time and money spent recovering these losses. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) sought out a means to sort quickly through claims data and identify improper reporting before they are paid.
- Healthcare claims data is complex and difficult to standardize especially when leveraging existing analytics models for patient care, disease outbreaks and fraud.
- In order to leverage data more efficiently, analysts needed a common data wrangling solution to explore, prepare and analyze this diverse claims data.
Solution with Trifacta
- By integrating Trifacta’s data wrangling solution into Leidos’ CAADS platform, data wrangling tasks that normally took six weeks are now taking as little as a day.
- Trifacta is helping CMS begin to chip away at the billions lost each year from fraudulent claims.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) administers the Medicare program and works in partnership with state governments to administer Medicaid, the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP), and health insurance portability standards.
