The Casualty Edition: Balancing Claim Technology with the Human Touch
As claims organizations navigate the best ways to automate the claims process, they should also consider finding new ways to use technology to better support their employees’ work. Author Shahin Hatamian points out that technology and “human touch”, or what’s called “humane automation”, can work together to enable claims organizations to create efficiencies, improve accuracy, and reduce mistakes.
To be successful, claims managers focus on the selection of technology partners that can provide flexible and scalable services. This technology can help capture data and automate workflows. But, claims professionals should also consider how easily adjusters can use digital portals to focus on higher impact tasks. Finally, another critical factor is the integration with claims offices and systems using web services.
Hatamian, VP of Product Management, Casualty Solutions, said, “As the technological landscape evolves, claims organizations should consider how those new technologies can support their own operations and how they can enhance the services that their partners provide through Humane Automation.”
