Flagging suspicious healthcare claims with Amazon SageMaker

The National Health Care Anti-Fraud Association (NHCAA) estimates that healthcare fraud costs the nation approximately $68 billion annually—3% of the nation’s $2.26 trillion in healthcare spending. This is a conservative estimate; other estimates range as high as 10% of annual healthcare expenditure, or $230 billion. Healthcare fraud inevitably results in higher premiums and out-of-pocket expenses […]
