Health Insurance Provider Utilizes LDU Solution to Dramatically Improve Data Quality
A major health insurer was faced with validating large data sets being transformed from flat files, Oracle and SQL Server. Validating these large data sets could not be accomplished with traditional strategies such as minus queries, stare & compare, or Excel comparison. Sampling of result sets was done in the past; However data defects were flowing into their production environments. A better solution needed to be found in order to improve the quality of the data they maintain for federal regulations, marketing and pricing purposes. The data quality improvement had to be accomplished in less time and without adding additional testing resources.
In the Pharmaceutical industry, where the correctness of Safety Data is paramount for reasons of both public health and compliance with Federal regulation, the issue of data quality takes on even greater proportions.
- improve data quality
- shorten the test cycle time
- reduce the number of testing resources
- run tests at off-hours
- disseminating test results on a timely basis
LDU solution has helped senior management understand and address data issues related to federal regulations, marketing programs, financials, and claims payment in a timely and cost-effective manner. Also, LDU solution has improved the quality of testing results by expanding the amount of data that can be sampled exponentially (many cases 100% of the data is validated).
Additional key benefits include:
- Reduced testing cycle time
- Decrease in testing resources
- A more organized and processoriented testing team
- faster ramp-up time for new team members
- adaptation for business users (through the Data Wizards)
- unattended nightly test execution
- a better understanding of their data
