Identify and Qualify Fraud in Health Services in Portugal

Researchers from Nova SBE Health Economics & Management Knowledge Center are developing a project with the Governmental Agency for Health Activities Inspection to identify and qualify fraud in Portugal’s health service.

The project is being developed with the governmental agency for health activities inspection to identify and qualify fraud in Portugal’s health services. They have a sample of 450 fraud reports to analyze and estimate what kind of activities can be considered fraud and how much is spent on fraudulent activities. The main goal is to create a benchmark analysis to be used by policymakers, and understand the magnitude of healthcare fraud in Portugal.

Researchers: Sara Almeida (Nova SBE), Maria Ana Matias (IGAS of the Portuguese NHS).
