A State Medicaid Agency Adobe PDF FormatMedical Fraud Detection through Data Mining

A state Medicaid agency covering about one million people throughout the state wanted to identify and reduce the number of fraudulent medical transactions. To accomplish the task of fraud detection, the agency hired an IT company specializing in medical billing solutions, which developed business rules for capturing known fraud mechanisms based on their background knowledge. Random, manual screening of the data demonstrated that this system was able to identify about half of the fraudulent transactions. The other half were not covered by the existing business rules. Together with Megaputer, the agency incorporated a PolyAnalyst fraud detection algorithm to attempt to identify the remaining cases without using the known business rules.

PolyAnalyst was used to analyze the Russian Short Term Government Bonds (STGB) market. The goal of this research was to develop an optimal strategy of capital management in this market, which would provide the maximum profit. The data included all bond issues prices, currency rates fluctuations, and other market indices for each trading session, since the establishment of this market up to the present day. These data have been analyzed with the help of PolyAnalyst, which discovered an algorithm for making a decision of selling or buying various issues of STGB.

Cactus Strategies Adobe PDF FormatDirect Marketing: Response Modeling

A national communication services provider was introducing new services. The client was seeking a solution that could learn from the input of marketing, sales and engineering activities, predict geographical areas of high demand and identify the best individual target customers. The client needed a tool to determine the best metropolitan areas to offer their services and the number of customers likely to select various services within each market. Later the same tool was to be capable of driving, tracking, and learning from the marketing effort, and changing the national strategy if necessary. Since there was no available history on a new product, a population with demonstrated pent up demand was identified and then modeled with the help of PolyAnalyst to generate customer profiles.

Cambridge Technology Partners Adobe PDF FormatModeling Propensity to Purchase

The goal of the CTP analysis was to determine how likely a customer would purchase a specific product, given the knowledge of what other items are already in this customer's "shopping basket". We need to find the percentage chance of purchasing this specific additional product. In addition, measures of statistical significance needed to be calculated to make sure that these percentages were greater than random chance. Finally, the most significant rules needed to be extracted. Meaningful conclusions were found in the data, and these are provided after a description of the analysis.

A Police Department Adobe PDF FormatText Mining Crime Reports

Megaputer Intelligence carried out an incident reports analysis project to demonstrate a complete analytical solution for processing a mix of structured data and text in incident reports. This case study discusses a methodology and sample results of discovering knowledge hidden in unstructured data. The project was carried out with the help of the data and text mining system PolyAnalyst. An overall objective was to create an analytical solution that investigators can routinely use to identify new patterns and associations between types of incidents, locations, time and descriptive details of the incident. The developed approach consists of a series of steps: preprocess data to the format suitable for further analysis, extract important concepts and terms through text-mining, analyze patterns and co-occurrences of identified concept, and finally develop an automated solution for crime pattern analysis.
