Insurance in the Age of Digital Transformation

Insurance in the Age of Digital Transformation

Insurers are increasingly challenged by unexpected business interruptions as they struggle to provide quality customer experience and drive profitability. Adopting the right data-driven technology in the age of digital transformation is crucial to property and casualty (P&C) insurance, life and non-life carriers, and payers alike to ensure a streamlined approach to claims processing, business optimization, rapid fraud detection, risk and loss assessment, and customer retention.

Fraud Detection

As fraudulent activities increase with time and technology, insurers must keep one-step ahead by deploying new anti-fraud tactics around predictive modelling, link analysis, exception reporting, and AI. Raw data arriving in PDF or text-based reports from clients and 3rd party systems can promote common schemes like double-payments, repeat claim submissions, premium and asset diversion, fee churning, and other types of fraud.

To combat fraud, Altair helps carriers:

  • Automate the extraction and transformation of data from unstructured, siloed formats while easily applying advanced fraud detection techniques such as Benford’s Law or the Gestalt tests.
  • Generate and deploy business rules to spotlight probable fraudulent activities.
  • Model complex relationships between inputs, outputs, and find fraudulent patterns in large amounts of data.

No code data transformation for insurance, instantly make data ready.

Risk Assessment

From regulatory and policy changes to new liabilities, disruptive world events are altering risk assessment and loss analyses overnight, making it more important than ever to streamline underwriting and actuarial processes. Repeatable data transformation and machine learning and artificial intelligence (MLAI) represent a huge opportunity in determining general risk and that of new insurance applicants to ensure a sound investment.

  • Compare disparate policy and claims data quickly and precisely, outside of parsing through Excel or semi-structured data.
  • Compile siloed data sources that indicate and measure liability in a self-service, no code environment, eliminating manual, error-prone workflows.
  • Apply predictive analytics to past loss trends to determine proper rates and reserves and overall planning of risk management.

RPA for Claims Processing and Reconciliation

As more businesses use robotic processing automation (RPA) to better operationalize and assess efficiency gaps, there are hurdles to fully realizing its benefits. Altair® Monarch® complements RPA initiatives by automating repeatable data transformation processes using models that ensure standardized report formats designed to meet end user requirements, drive out inefficiencies, and reduce costs and effort.

  • Streamline data workflows and create shared, governed assets in preparation for further analysis, such as calculating premiums and targeting fraud.
  • Implement RPA for claims comparison and auto-adjudication by blending data across claimants to uncover complex patterns, trends, and anomalies.
  • Connect dozens of applications and databases across geographies and departments to minimize time spent on reconciliation and standardize financial reporting.
