Sr Solutions Architect

Carl Hammersburg manages the SAS Government and Healthcare Risk and Fraud team, and has been with SAS for 5 years. Prior to that, he spent 20 years in anti-fraud activities for Washington State’s exclusive workers’ comp insurer, the Department of Labor and Industries.

In 2004, Carl formed that agency’s comprehensive fraud program, covering premium audit, claim investigation, provider fraud and collections. Data sharing and investigative partnerships with other State and Federal agencies, as well as driving public availability of information and awareness served as cornerstones to the anti-fraud activities of the program. During his stewardship, audit and investigative activities doubled and outcomes tripled, based on a focus on data mining and predictive analytics that improved efficiency and case selection.

Program success under Carl’s leadership resulted in awards from two successive Governors of Washington State.
