Characteristics of an Ideal Claim Management System

Insurance CIO Outlook | Wednesday, June 08, 2022


Client expectations and mindsets have changed drastically in the past ten years.


Claims are a crucial aspect of the insurance industry. Still, if your insurance firm isn't as large as Axa or Allianz, you'll require a sound claims management system. Also, client expectations and mindsets have changed dramatically in the last ten years.

As a result, the insurance industry must rapidly become more customer-centric and improve the consumer experience.

Some of the characteristics of an ideal claims management system.

Tracing claims progress

Claimants should trace the status of their claim, the consultants' decisions, the steps they must take, and the final resolution.

All documents in the customer's pocket

When customers utilize their insurer's app, they must save their paperwork on the app, including copies of their ID, driver's license, and policy documents.

Online claims payments

If claim transactions can get finished online, clients can save time. It also expands transparency since both the consumer and the consultant have admission to the claim's ultimate determination.

Simplicity and security

Logging in with an easy-to-remember PIN code enables quick and easy access. However, any claim data input must keep safe up to its submission. Also, all personal information must get encrypted. It's also advantageous if most of the app's functionality is accessible even when the user is unconnected to the internet.

Reminder function

It is a helpful feature as it helps a consultant track jobs requiring immediate attention. Also, the insurance company's service is made more available by the reminder feature.

Handling various types of contracts

The claims management system should be ready to manage various regular contracts. Similarly, because clients and consultants may submit changes to the standard form of the contract's conditions, the system must handle them.

Keeping documentation up-to-date

Some claims are harder to prepare because they demand more documentation. So, claims managers need a system to help them keep current paperwork, prepare claims, and avoid the loss of important papers.

Extended search capabilities

The agent must study nearly any data within the claim, involving the claimant's name, policy number, phone number, address, and check number, among other things. This Characteristic facilitates searching.

Centralized database

If users have several offices across the country, it's preferable to have a centralized database where management can access files, claim forms, and other information. In addition, they will be able to analyze the outcome and status of claims using a reporting tool.
