Claims Analytics Helps a Leading Insurance Company Save Millions

Quantzig’s recent claims analytics engagement for a leading insurance company guarantees 85% increase in correct classification of high-risk claims compared to heuristic ways.

Claim handling and risk management

Many insurance companies are utilizing key data analytics, performance indicators, and an advocacy-based model to successfully manage claims. Sifting through documents manually and priority handling of high-risk claims is very challenging for service providers. The use of the effective analytical solution to identify both high and low-risk claims will help companies to reduce processing costs, identify fraudulent insurance claims, and process claim requests quicker. The claims analytics team at Quantzig offers predictive analytics solutions to the insurance companies to identify potential high-risk claims and subsequently reduce future costs involved with the claims. This engagement has combined decision analysis with logistic regression technique to classify high and low-risk claims. By leveraging these services, insurance companies develop individual logistics regression models for different disabilities and categorize them according to the risks associated with it.

By using logistic regression model, companies are developing effective solutions to identify and manage risks levels of different claims. These models are specifically designed to analyze data sets such as injury dates, nature of the injury, the tenure of employment, payment details, and monthly payments to identify the risk probability threshold value for each model and assess the expected future cost savings at that cutoff value.

Use of predictive analytics tools

Predictive analytics is a statistical and analytical technique that assess the past events to anticipate the future. In the insurance sector, it analyzes historical data such as nature of the injury, treatment, insured data, liability, characteristics of the claimant, attorneys involved, and venue to formulate settlement values for the losses incurred. This tool helps in ranking the priority of the claim process and amount of compensation that is associated with the claim. It removes manual intervention and results in faster claim settlement.
