This is further complicated by unprecedented volumes of benefit distributions and lack of data-sharing. How can an integrated approach to program integrity help address the fraud, waste, and abuse that can manifest in different forms across an agency? We’ll discuss:
- Promoting a culture of detecting, preventing, and responding in an integrated manner.
- Taking a framework approach to enhance your strategy.
