This measure is important because the more providers SIU interacts with the more cost avoidance can be realized.
SIU seeks to measure the effectiveness of SIU contact with providers to determine if the provider changed their billing patterns going forward after SI involvement. Data analytics or other leads will identify potential subject area and providers to audit. SIU strives to audit a variety of providers, educate as appropriate, and recover funds when necessary.
COVID had an impact on this measure as providers were not subjected to proactive audits during that time.
