Cyber Crime

With an estimated 664 cases in 2015 and 8 offices spread across the state, analysts like J.R. (Analyst Supervisor) from the Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit (MFCU) spent much of their day reviewing data for proof of Medicaid fraud, money laundering, and occasional racketeering.

After four years of working for the agency, J.R. remembered the case that prompted her to search for a solution to Excel data entry. Her assignment alleged that a provider laundered money using Medicaid funds.

The investigator

MFCU procured eight licenses of ScanWriter for Excel, one for each office location. The auditors and occasionally the analysts used the software to collect and gather data for their assigned cases.

ScanWriter offers advanced features to capture data from any PDF and includes the option for custom enhancements, which ensure that data is captured accurately. The agency selected ScanWriter because it supports over 10,000 financial institutions – with more added every day.

In addition to completing the case faster, ScanWriter gave J.R. a precise look at the money trail. This analysis helped her determine that, in the case mentioned above, no money laundering activity occurred. J.R. stated that this is a ScanWriter benefit because “You want to be sure that all your data is right before you proceed with allegations and you can’t spend all of your time just getting the data.”
