Synopsis

The report provides information and insights into the key technologies driving operational efficiencies in claims handling processes in the non-life insurance segment across the world. It also provides an in-depth analysis of the role that some of the key regulations across the world are playing in improving claims management operations. The report provides:


  • Intensive analysis of the key technologies playing a pivotal role in enhancing the operational efficiencies in non-life claims in terms of reducing claims resolution time, claims handling expenses and increased identification of fraud

  • Comprehensive picture of the key trends, drivers and challenges related to the above technological trends and case studies illustrating the impact of these technologies

  • Detailed assessment of how some of the important regulations across the world are impacting claims processing efficiencies

  • Insights into how changing economic fortunes impact non-life claims


Summary

Globally, non-life insurance companies have been registering increasing payouts on account of claims. To deal with this situation, non-life insurers have been taking measures to make their claims management processes more efficient to reduce claim payouts and to curb claims-handling expenses. Non-life insurers are employing advanced technologies to improve their claims management processes. One of these technologies is integrated claims management systems (ICMSs). Non-life insurers have been implementing ICMSs to ensure that they can keep in contact with customers through the customers' preferred devices. ICMS are also being employed to gain a clearer view of claims data, which will help in identifying fraudulent activity. Non-life insurers have also been using predictive analytics to determine specific choices at the time of claims processing and to determine the long-term business potential of customers so that they can be provided with a better claims service.

  • The above technologies are mainly helping non-life insurers to reduce the claims resolution time, the expenses related to claims processing and payouts on account of fraudulent claims
