As the world has evolved to meet the challenges of COVID-19, so have modern day criminals looking to cash in on the estimated billions in pandemic relief lost to fraud. This presentation focuses on how analytics continue to be one of the best protections against fraud, waste, and abuse - even in today’s fast-changing environment. We begin by exploring recent stories from the headlines followed by a deep-dive into the analytics and technology that can be used to find this unsavory activity. Finally, we conclude with how we are partnering with our clients to build proactive monitoring solutions and invite participants to share their experiences and raise any questions they may have.

Learning Objectives:

By the end of this presentation, participants should expect to be able to: Understand the opportunity for using analytics to proactively monitor for fraud, waste, and abuse Recognize the tools and technology available to enable analytic programs
