January, 2022 – In a typical audit production environment it is not unusual for clients to remove / delete transactions from a specific audit sample for a variety of reasons. This feature enhancement allows users to request transaction replacements in the application and have our automated sampling features select additional audits from the file population which are selected and placed in the desired sample. User requests for replacement transactions are tracked in a visible history log for timing execution and general oversight of the process.

September, 2021 – At Datamethod, our goal of partnering with clients to help achieve their business needs is always a focus. RPA (or Robotic Process Automation) is an area which we believe will provide significant opportunities for enhanced audit efficiency, accuracy and productivity. We’ve launched a development pilot to; 1) Integrate existing RPA output data into ClaimAuditor for completion of audits, and 2) Automate the data integration to ClaimAuditor from the RPA system. We are in the design phase currently…more to come as the project unfolds.

Though independent plans, the specific quality measures and filtering that they need to apply to quality reporting has been designed in ClaimAuditor to permit common report design and filtering capability.
August, 2020 – The ClaimAuditor feature set for audits and errors have been expanded to permit the auditor to apply a ‘reminder’ to these tasks for future review or follow up.
