On October 18, at the invitation of T-Systems, the most economical, customer-friendly and innovative IT projects were honored in Vienna. […]
In the category “Service and Processes (Public Sector)”, the Software Competence Center Hagenberg (SCCH) and the Österreichische Gesundheitskasse (ÖGK) were able to convince the jury. The project “Data analysis supports the fight against social fraud” was awarded.
The social security industry is a mainstay of the welfare state. The research project developed a tool based on an intelligent combination of machine learning methods and statistical outlier evaluation to detect fraud patterns in companies. Together with the ÖGK, the SCCH developed an automated suggestion aid for suspected cases. This resulted in a testing system for the whole of Austria, which was successfully introduced.
That’s what the jury said
- “Data analysis for fairness in our society”
- “successful example of data-based efficient support at the workplace in specialist departments”
- “it works and it’s a good thing”
