The Opioid Centaur is designed with cutting edge Al and forensic pre-payment platforms to uniquely tackle this epidemic. The Opioid Centaur uses a variety of systems lead by Artificial Intelligence to:
- Immediately flag all known abused opioids in medical claims for further investigation.
- Determine physical distance between prescriber and user to alert the user of the Opioid Centaur of possible fraud and abuse.
- Use historical data to determine potential fraud and abuse patterns in opioid prescribers and users.

- Find fraud and abuse in medical claims by using Alto understand the connections between providers, prescribers, patients and even family members, friends and acquaintances.
- Categorize entities by matches, possible matches and possibly related records.
