PearlDiver and the Semantic Community have joined forces to showcase the next generation of medical data mining technology.
Definition of a Medicare Zombie: A patient who has been reported as dead to Medicare who goes on to have further treatment by Medicare providers on Medicare’s dime.
The Medicare Zombie Hunter application performs live searches through ~3/4 of a billion Medicare records to find those pesky dead patients to keep coming back for more medical treatment. Based upon the user input, the Zombie Hunter will identify (to the extent allowed by law and CMS) the undead patients, the patient’s medical provider, the amount of money charged to Medicare, and how much money Medicare reimbursed for the treatment.
The data is then visualized by Semantic Community in Spotfire, a self-serve business intelligence tool. See http://semanticommunity.info/Build_the_Health_Data_Infrastructure_in_the_Cloud/Announcement
