What stands in the way of a more efficient claims administration process? For too many organizations the answer to that question is a reliance on disparate systems, including the use of outdated legacy claims management systems.
The adoption of an integrated, SaaS claims management system that combines workflow automation tools with all of the functionality needed for end-to-end claims adjusting can be transformative.
Benefits an integrated solution and automated workflows
An Insurance & Technology article accurately captures the reality for adjusters working in numerous systems. “For insurance adjusters, one painful reality of their job is the need to switch between multiple software systems in order to find all the relevant information on a specific claim. It’s critical to have all pertinent data in one spot to reduce and/or eliminate this quest for data.”
Use of an integrated claims management system provides adjusters and claims managers with direct, centralized access to the pertinent claims information that they need to do their jobs. Additionally, integration of data into a single-system also opens up the potential for the automation of manual processes and workarounds that negatively impact adjuster productivity.
According to a 2017 Risk and Insurance article that examines the shift from legacy claims systems to newer SaaS technology, this transition “accommodates a younger, less-experienced adjuster workforce with automation that eliminates more of their decision making.”
An integrated solution that includes workflow automation tools improves the claims handling process by driving productivity and informing decisions that contribute to the swift, cost-effective closure of claims.
Selecting a claims management system
“How to Choose a Claims Management Software System” provides a list of helpful tips for organizations looking to purchase or replace a claims management system. While the extent of integration options and automation tools available is a key concern, other considerations include:
- Does the vendor have expertise in converting data from legacy claims systems?
- Is the platform adaptable enough to support unique, client-specific requests, as well as expansion into new lines of business?
- How responsive will the vendor be to requests for support?
- Are security measures in place—and continually updated—that will adequately protect data in the system and during transmission?
Ultimately, the article concludes that a vendor must be able to demonstrate the capacity to “provide flexibility, scalability and stellar customer service.”
