CGI has released the newest version of its proven Customized Audit System (CAS™) that empowers healthcare payer claims auditors - for
the first time ever - to review, thoroughly investigate and
act on aberrant provider claims data, right from their work stations,
and without the intervention of scarce information systems resources.
What CGI's CAS application provides
The new CAS 4.0 version provides a simpler and more actionable business
intelligence tool to help healthcare payers manage claims reimbursements
and reduce fraud and abuse in the healthcare system. It includes enhanced
data exploration and customization capabilities that connect directly
with the audit management module allowing claims auditors to take immediate
action. CAS uses the ProClarity ® analytic tool that improves the
system's ability to drill into claims data to investigate and take
appropriate action when necessary.
The CAS system also allows payers to develop customized reports and research
to identify patterns and detect errors that auditors were not aware of
previously. With this business intelligence, payers can monitor and work
with individual providers to educate and help improve their claims performance.
