Using Artificial Intelligence to improve claims processing
What can insurers gain from Artificial Intelligence? This is the biggest question that our customers ask us when trying to understand the business value of AI.
The use cases of Artificial Intelligence is plenty when it comes to insurance companies. Applications of AI like Natural Language Understanding, Machine Learning and image processing are super valuable for insurers to cut down time and the amount of effort it takes for the insurers to process claims.
According to Accenture, 75% of the insurance company executives think that Artificial Intelligence would revolutionize their business. This is a huge percentage of executives who are looking at AI seriously.
To start with, we’ve seen these three use cases of AI in the insurance industry that turned out to be of huge value to their business:
- AI as a tool for knowledge transfer when switching employees in the company.
- AI can help you reduce claims processing time exponentially.
- AI can help predict the best decision that can be made on a claim based on holistic data.
Artificial Intelligence taking over the knowledge transfer part of a company is huge, when the workforce from the claims team takes a change, AI can assist the new team to understand how decisions were made earlier, and why. This cuts down huge time and cost in transferring knowledge to the new team.
Having said that, approximately 82% of the senior executives in insurance companies believe that their business could take a humongous turn with AI in their business.
The RoI of AI also something to note here. As we said earlier, RoI of AI is something that grows overtime. At the current landscape, to stay competitive, insurers must stay ahead of the curve when it comes to improving their business process.
