Experian QAS Launches New Medical and Insurance Compliance Tool

On-Demand Service Provides Sophisticated Searches Against Compliance Lists to Decrease the Risk of Compliance Failures

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - Jan 24, 2012) - Experian® QAS®, a part of Experian Marketing Services and a leading provider of address verification software and services, today launched QASmedWatch(SM), an online medical and insurance compliance tool that allows companies to search for medical professionals who have either opted out or been excluded from federal funding programs.

The service enables more flexible and intelligent searching of sanctioned lists, decreasing the risk of compliance failures due to misspellings or common typographical mistakes. QASmedWatch can perform a search on an individual entry or process lists against the sanctioned files.

"This new application allows medical and insurance organizations to utilize the fuzzy-matching software in searching against known opt-out lists. This enables the user to make the compliance process faster and more accurate."

The new service is completely hosted and does not require any installation or data updates; it is available now at
