THE STORY OF VERISYS

Verisys serves today’s complex provider and employer data management landscape.

1992

JOHN O’SHAUGHNESSY AND DICK KUSSEROW FOUND GMS

John O’Shaughnessy, former assistant secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, and Dick Kusserow, former Inspector General of Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) created Government Management Services (GMS) in 1992 in Alexandria, Va. The goal was to create a database called Fraud Abuse Control Information System, FACIS® that tracks excluded and debarred medical providers. It aggregates current and historical records for a comprehensive, searchable database that streamlines governance, risk management, and compliance. FACIS is the fulfilled vision of a database that reduces fraud, waste, and abuse while contributing to the goal of healthcare to protect patients and deliver on the promise of optimal outcomes.

1993

FACIS ENTERS MARKET

The Fraud Abuse Control Information system, FACIS started one record at a time. The team began collecting data from license boards, the Office of Inspector General, and other federal data publishers as paper records. The database was soon recognized as the gold standard for exclusion, debarment, sanction, and disciplinary action records. Collecting, digitizing, verifying, and aggregating the data one record at a time was time consuming and data storage was expensive in 1993 but the vision created what is FACIS today with 10 million records collected from thousands of primary source publishers.
