ORNL to use YarcData Appliance for Healthcare Fraud Detection

This week Cray’s YarcData division announced a contract to deliver a uRiKA graph-analytics appliance to the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). Analysts at ORNL will use the uRiKA system as they conduct research in healthcare fraud and analytics for a leading healthcare payer.

Identifying healthcare fraud and abuse is challenging due to the volume of data, the various types of data, as well as the velocity at which new data is created. YarcData’s uRiKA appliance is uniquely suited to take on these challenges, and we are excited to see the results that will come from the strategic analysis of some very large and complex data sets,” said Jeff Nichols, Associate Laboratory Director for Computing and Computational Sciences at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

In addition to the healthcare fraud detection program, researchers and scientists at ORNL will also apply the uRiKA system to other areas of research where data discovery is vital. Read the Full Story.
