Excella to deliver data analytics and DevOps support for cloud-based analytics platform
Arlington, Virginia, December 11, 2023 – Excella, a pioneer in Agile data solutions, today announced that the company has entered into a Joint Venture Partnership agreement with the National Technical Information Service (NTIS) to support the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of the Inspector General (OIG). Excella will support a cloud-based analytics platform for Medicaid and Medicare analytics, patient abuse and harm oversight, and managed care analytics and monitoring using a DevOps model.
This Joint Venture Partnership with NTIS expands Excella’s work with HHS OIG’s Office of the Chief Data Officer (OCDO), which puts data at the fingertips of the agency’s 1,600 auditors, evaluators, and investigators to fight fraud, waste, and abuse of federal healthcare programs and services. The initial phase of this Joint Venture Partnership with NTIS will focus on Medicaid fraud and abuse detection by identifying and incorporating new and existing sources of data into a new cloud analytics platform.
“We have partnered with HHS OIG for nearly seven years and are thrilled to now support its work to ensure that Medicaid and Medicare funding is being used appropriately to deliver healthcare services to recipients,” said Jimmy Benani, Vice President of Excella’s Federal Health and Civilian market. “We look forward to working with OIG and other industry partners to deliver modern analytics solutions that improve service, quality, and security across the Federal Health eco-system.”
