The burden of a digital transformation age on insurance

There is an overbearing responsibility on the insurance industry to enter the digital transformation age. Hence, insurers can no longer thrive in the current evolving marketplace by remaining dependent on outdated claims management methods.

What daily challenges do claims professionals face?

In the industry, there is a widespread understanding of the importance of claims functioning. High performance in claims functioning is indicative of an agency’s ability to compete.

And this points to the fact that the challenging industry that is insurance spends most of the premiums on claims servicing and processing costs. Boiling down to whether your insurance firm can delight a customer, retain one, and reduce the overall costs of servicing them.

Why is claims transformation vital?

The need to reinvent how we process claims comes from the rigorous regulatory requirements and complex litigious environments that entrap insurance agencies. It is evident that insurance, as a whole, needs a dramatic upheaval in its claims processes.

Thus, most insurance companies seem to be making no headway in efficiently servicing clients and managing the onslaught of claims. However, data suggests that claims professionals have a ton of room to ensure a higher success rate. Claims professionals spend 44–49% on non-core activities that should instead get outsourced.

The challenges the industry faces

Process inefficiencies are the primary source of claims leakages. Moreover, claims professionals spend most of the week engaging in task repetition. The problem at hand urges the question of why claims management shouldn’t get streamlined.

Claims transformation is an opportunity for businesses concerned with improving their performance on customer satisfaction metrics. They can operate a newly-configured claims operation, rather than having to make short-term changes to their processes. Hence, there is a higher focus on this approach to revamp insurance processes.
