CMS Provider Screening

In 2011, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) contracted with TurningPoint to implement a solution for screening providers, and medical equipment companies for the risk of fraud. A robust master person indexing tool was required to meet the requirements of CMS. TurningPoint subcontracted part of its contract and work scope to Ai, specifically the implementation and configuration of IBM Initiate MDM software. Among other functions, the Initiate master data management solution compares provider identities to an array of third-party data sources, i.e. FBI databases.
