AI pilot project to help CMS identify fraud deemed a success

Deep Labs, a San Francisco-based provider of artificial intelligence systems, announced Aug. 19 the successful completion of a pilot project to help CMS better detect potential fraud and abuse.

Deep Labs conducted the project with the help of Visual Connections, a Windsor Mill, Md.-based firm providing IT and data analytics services to state and federal clients. Together, the companies developed an advanced AI system able to proactively identify potentially fraudulent activity in records from CMS' Medicare Part D prescription drug benefit program.

The system was a "tremendous success," able to review millions of records per second and mark any suspicious ones for further investigation, according to Frederick Deese, founder and CEO of Visual Connections. "We are extremely proud to have successfully flagged these potential losses for the CMS, as it strives to cut its waste and overall losses," added Scott Edington, CEO of Deep Labs.
