SESSION 3 - InsurTech for Claims: Current Trends and Future
The pace of innovation in the insurance claims adjusting space is
increasing rapidly, yet changes are still slow to come. We’ve seen industry
incumbents and new entrants invest in InsurTech to capitalize on the potential
of artificial intelligence, machine learning and data analytics. While there are
a few pockets of the industry where these tools are in use today, we have not
yet seen the wholesale disruption that many predicted would follow. In this
interactive session, you’ll learn about the success stories that exist in the
market today and explore the tools and technologies that hold the most promise
for tomorrow. You’ll also learn how to transform the promised changes to reality
and uncover the role the policyholder will have in driving this change. Finally,
discover the key questions industry players must ask when evaluating the
potential InsurTech for claims holds for their business.
