  • Clinic Surveillance
  • Document Retrieval
  • Neighborhood Canvass

  • Timely updates to our clients

Our Special Investigations Unit (SIU) is highly specialized and trained to identify and eliminate fraud through witness canvasses, statements and field interviews, scene investigations, alive and well checks, clinic inspections, and neighborhood canvassed.

When selecting a risk mitigation vendor, it is important to ask about their Special Investigations Unit (SIU). Although often overlooked, an investigative firm’s SIU department is actually an excellent indicator of the overall quality of said firm’s work product. Why? Because SIU work requires persistence, accuracy, and an almost manic attention to detail. Such characteristics transfer well to other types of investigations; therefore, if the firm you choose performs high quality SIU investigations, you can reasonably expect excellent work from them across the board.


I was contacted by a client who thought they were a victim of theft in Ohio. I was assigned the case and immediately went to the Intellenet member list. I located the name Jim Silvania of Silvania Investigation. I knew that most if not all of our members are phenomenal but didn’t realize how lucky I was getting Jim involved. For three weeks and from a distance I was briefed as Jim Silvania ran this case into the ground. In the end, Jim recovered a one of a kind prototype, which just happened to be a very valuable piece of medical equipment. Thank God it was not stolen just shoddy shipping and a lot of forgetful employees. Jim Silvania, Thank you! To the rest of Intellenet, Jim Silvania made me very proud to be a Intellenet member.
