ACCESS Health and Clinton Health Access Initiative Organize Data Analytics Workshop

As part of work within the Bill and Melinda Gates Insurance Consortium, ACCESS Health India and the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) helped organize a one day workshop in the state of Maharashtra on Data Analytics and Measures to Control Fraud.

The workshop, which was organized for the State Health Assurance Society, helped strengthen the capacity of stakeholders on data analysis, insurance related dashboards, state specific analysis, and fraud management. Team members from a variety of State Health Assurance departments were present.

The ACCESS Health team took the participants through the requirements and framework of an anti-fraud audit investigation system, based on the guidelines prepared by the National Health Authority. The team also shared knowledge on ways to improve the hospital empanelment process. Participants were taken through a study that was conducted by ACCESS Health on the current processes followed by the Society, challenges, and avenues for improvement. The Clinton Health Access Initiative team walked participants through a module on the role of data and data analysis, and benefits of having data dashboards for better decision making.
