Italy’s social security agency (INPS) has selected Teradata, a provider of enterprise data warehousing, and SAS, a business analytics software and services firm, to implement a combined Teradata and SAS enterprise data warehouse (EDW) and analytics system for healthcare-related fraud detection.
The companies said the new system that includes software, hardware and services will accommodate the organisation’s growing requirements for visibility into detail data and analytical business insight, reduce costs and add efficiencies.
The Teradata data warehouse, combined with the SAS analytic offering, will help the INPS and its many users analyse multiple terabytes of detailed data linked to millions of health insurance claims, patient experiences, doctors, hospitals, treatments, and procedures to answer complex questions and gain valuable insight into trends, costs and quality of care.
Teradata EMEA president Hermann Wimmer said today’s business organisations are challenged to manage huge data volumes while optimising their analytical capabilities.
"Innovative customer installations such as this one at INPS show that SAS and Teradata are delivering on the promise of in-database analytics, which is to give customers a flexible, powerful means for implementing advanced information management in one location," Wimmer said.
