Managed Services for Large Global Bank Recovers Lost Efficiencies and Workproduct Quality
A U.S.-based healthcare provider faced a Department of Justice Civil Investigative Demand (CID) investigating a claim of receiving free testing materials from a specific laboratory for quid pro quo referrals in potential violation of the Stark Law. The client, suspecting a terminated employee had made the accusation, provided Consilio with the employee’s email and laptop data for analysis by Riskcovery. Leveraging the text of the original CID along with other conceptual samples, our experts created a custom classification program for Riskcovery describing ideas of interest.
Riskcovery identified and prioritized documents and emails conceptually similar to those in the custom classification, leading to 3,000 emails sent to a personal email account during the last three months of employment. The 2nd highest relevant document, based on the Riskcovery algorithm, was an email to the lab in question, detailing an explicit agreement to send all analyses in exchange for testing materials provided free-of-charge. Other emails contained agreements with other labs and pharmaceutical companies as well as several including patient information in violation of HIPAA regulations.
The client and counsel were able to justify further investigation of all of ESI and custodians identified by Riskcovery as well as assist in the development of the response to the DOJ.
