Finnegan, Daniel and Marsh, Joan. Using Technology To Fight Insurance Fraud. Quality Planning Corporation. 1996.

Abstract: This article discusses new technologies that may be helpful in the fight against insurance fraud. This article reports the results of a poll that asked SIU's what technologies have been most beneficial to their investigations.

The most commonly used technology is databases. The most popular databases used were the National Insurance Crime Bureau, which offers insurance claim information and the American Insurance Services Group, which allows searches regarding bodily injury claims and property loss claims.

There has also been a new wave of software introduced that offers help to investigators. Investigative linking software establishes connection between organizations, events, activities, and locations. They are extremely helpful when there are a large number of claims in one area. The software can help identify patterns of fraud. Accident reconstruction software can recreate the accident and determine if the physical evidence coincides with the reported facts of the accident. This article provides the names of companies that provide the different technologies discussed.
