Former Chief of Medicaid Program Integrity for State of Florida Joins 21CT to Fight Health Care Fraud, Waste, and Abuse

Rick Zenuch Will Serve as Director of Investigations and Analysis, Marrying His Field Expertise With 21CT's Innovative Technology Approach.

AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 08/26/14 -- A veteran of health care fraud enforcement and regulation, Rick Zenuch has joined 21CT as director of investigations and analysis to help lead a new era of Medicaid fraud detection powered by data analytics. At this month's National Association of Medicaid Program Integrity (NAMPI) conference, 21CT introduced a new weapon in this battle, 21CT Torch, a fraud detection analytics solution purpose-built to remove the complexity found in today's analytics platforms. With Rick joining the 21CT family, the company has strengthened its mission to fight health care fraud in a new way.

As the former chief of Medicaid Program Integrity (MPI), for the Agency for Health Care Administration, State of Florida, Zenuch directed and managed program activities designed to identify Medicaid fraud, waste, abuse and errors resulting in monetary losses to the State's $21 billion Medicaid program. In this role, he recognized that investigators -- not technologists -- needed to be the ones using data analysis tools if they were to quickly and effectively start building cases.

"I've spent much of my career on the front lines of fraud enforcement," said Zenuch. "What I've learned is that experience and intuition are incredibly powerful tools, but until now there hasn't been a way to combine those critical skills with the technological advantages of investigative data analytics. 21CT has truly developed this next generation of LYNXeon as a fraud detection analytics solution built for the way investigators work. I am excited about the opportunity to help agencies across the country leverage analytics in ways that are meaningful to them and combat the nationwide problem of fraud, waste, and abuse."

A member of the Medicaid Integrity Institute's Data Analytics workgroup, Zenuch has firsthand knowledge of how powerful analytics can transform an investigator's case. At 21CT he will leverage that expertise to help the 21CT TorchTeam, the nation's first and only on-demand fraud intelligence unit, expose intelligence hidden within health care data to generate leads, uncover evidence, and discover hidden relationships to quickly build their case.

"Technology only works if people want to use it," said Irene Williams, CEO, 21CT. "Caseworkers and investigators know that they have tools available to them, but the problem is that those legacy data systems were not built for them. They are too difficult, too time-consuming and too ineffective to help an investigation in any meaningful way. No one understands this better than Rick, and we are thrilled to have him on our team to help usher in a new era of effective fraud detection, where the combination of in-field experience and data analytics delivers more leads, more cases, and more recovery of funds."
