This is our story of co-creating a solution with a leading technology provider in auto casualty and workers’ compensation

As we know ...

When it comes to complex decision-making processes for casualty claims or medical case management, high processing volumes generally imply low quality and high cost. Advanced analytics and automation can help identify potential areas of improvement, and boost efficiency, accuracy and consistency across processes. It can also improve decision-making.

The challenge for a technology provider was ...

It had expensive, inaccurate and delayed claim settlements due to complex, large-scale global operations for casualty claims and medical case management. Due to the scale of its operations, the company possessed large repositories of residual data that required enhanced systems and processes to glean improved insights. The company was also looking to achieve economies of scale, meet stringent compliance requirements, and stay ahead of the competition in the auto casualty and workers’ compensation space.

Here’s what we co-created as a solution…

WNS leveraged its domain knowledge and automated key aspects of the technology provider’s processes while deploying advanced analytics. The solution included:

  • Clinical Decision Tree Toolkit for Medical Case Management: Automated learning algorithms improved the clinical decisions required for complex treatment scenarios in the utilization review stage

  • Nurse Assignment Tool: Capacity modeling helped in better work allocation of nurses

  • Regulatory Compliance: WNS’ proprietary tool for medical case management helped maintain regulatory compliance. The automation feature of this tool enabled accurate and seamless communication between the technology provider and its clients

  • True Task Manager Workflow Solution: Real-time workflow capability helped in controlling both under- and over-allocation of staff, as well as ensuring the claims were verified and error-free

  • Analytics-enabled Quality Management System: Sampling tool enabled picking the right audit samples across the technology provider’s clients, service levels and diverse U.S. state guidelines. Analytics engine helped deliver actionable insights on process behavior and patterns

The outcomes from the process of co-creation are…

WNS’ transformative solution enabled the technology provider to enhance its client experience significantly. Automation and analytics reduced process complexity, increased the efficiency of the claims handling operations and reduced data leakage.
