LexisNexis® Tackles Organized Crime within Health Care Fraud Through Social Network Analytics 11/9/2011

Bill Fox to Speak at the NHCAA Institute for Health Care Fraud Prevention 2011 Annual Training Conference

ATLANTA, – LexisNexis® Risk Solutions today announced that Bill Fox, senior director of health care, will speak at the National Health Care Anti-Fraud Association's Annual Training Conference. Mr. Fox's presentation will discuss how Social Network Analytics, a new advanced analytic tool, enables both commercial and government payers to combat the infiltration of organized crime rings as they relate to health care fraud.

Increasingly, law enforcement agencies and health insurers have witnessed the migration of criminals away from drug trafficking and more violent and heavily penalized areas of crime into the safer and more lucrative business of health care fraud. Much of the fraud activity that plagues health care is the result of organized, collusive activities among providers and between providers and consumers. Social Network Analytics bring visibility to these hidden relationships by leveraging a company’s internal data, public records data and derived and risk scored data sets to identify concealed relationships between people, assets, entities, property and medical providers to reveal collusion within a payer's network that might otherwise go unnoticed.

LexisNexis offers a comprehensive suite of health care solutions, including comprehensive identity management, data enrichment, and social and predictive analytics that help uncover fraud schemes and collusion throughout different points of the claims workflow.

In his presentation, Mr. Fox will focus on how Social Network Analytics:

  • Provides insight into networks of businesses and individuals perpetrating health care fraud, going beyond mere linking or visualization
  • Can be deployed to reveal and visualize hidden collusion, using real case studies
  • Drives higher workflow ROI within government and commercial payers

When:
2:30 p.m. Eastern Time, Wednesday, November 16

Where:
NHCAA Annual Training Conference
Hyatt Regency Atlanta
265 Peachtree Street NE
