PLEASONTON, Calif., Nov. 6 — YarcData, a Cray company dedicated to providing "Big Data" graph-analytic solutions to enterprise customers, today announced it was awarded a contract to deliver a uRiKA graph-analytics appliance to the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). Analysts at ORNL will use the uRiKA system as they conduct research in healthcare fraud and analytics for a leading healthcare payer.
In addition to the healthcare fraud detection program, researchers and scientists at ORNL will also apply the capabilities of the uRiKA graph-analytics appliance to other areas of research where data discovery is vital. These potential use cases include healthcare treatment efficacy and outcome analysis, analyzing drugs and side effects, and the analysis of proteins and gene pathways.
"Identifying healthcare fraud and abuse is challenging due to the volume of data, the various types of data, as well as the velocity at which new data is created. YarcData's uRiKA appliance is uniquely suited to take on these challenges, and we are excited to see the results that will come from the strategic analysis of some very large and complex data sets," said Jeff Nichols, Associate Laboratory Director for Computing and Computational Sciences at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
"Finding patterns of fraud and abuse in the healthcare industry is a significant challenge, but it is also a problem that the uRiKA graph-analytics appliance is designed to address because of its unique ability to discover unknown or hidden relationships and patterns in large volumes of data," said Arvind Parthasarathi, president of YarcData. "While the types of problems that the Oak Ridge user community is working to solve are extremely dynamic and come with massive amounts of unstructured data, our graph analytics solution will be a valuable resource for connecting the dots."
