Field of Study: Auditing
Learning Objectives: To understand how data analysis tools can help identify unusual patterns and allow auditors and investigators to make better audit selection decisions.

Identifying fraud within the billions of dollars spent on public programs on a case-by-case basis is like searching for a needle in a haystack. But new technology allows auditors to sift through all of the spending and to identify patterns outside the norm. Bringing in information from other systems provides more penetrating insight and allows investigators to focus time and energy more productively and meaningfully.  The Massachusetts State Auditor’s Office has employed data analytics tools to make risk-based audit selections, enhance risk analysis in audits, and conduct data-driven, proactive investigations. This web conference will examine the case of a doctor’s fraudulent billing of the state health program to illustrate the value of these tools. You will hear the story of how they uncovered the fraud as the team takes you through the investigative process step-by-step.
