Accelerated Underwriting

Accelerate your underwriting so you can issue policies faster.

Our Life Underwriting Solution extends your underwriting engines with cognitive capture, business rules, analytics and predictive modeling to streamline and accelerate underwriting operations. Our software helps underwriters efficiency obtain the correct information to review and process applicants to make consistent and accurate ratings ultimately reducing costs. 

Life insurance software that decreases the amount of time you review applicant information.

Attending physician statements (APSs) are a major obstacle in the underwriting process. They are expensive (averaging $86), take anywhere from 10-30 days to receive, can range from 50 pages to upwards of 11,000, and demand days to manually review.

Our Life Underwriting Solution provides cognitive insights that lower the need for and dependency on APSs in the underwriting process.

Our models demonstrate that between 70% and 80% of all cases do not need APSs for accurate processing.

Your Underwriter’s Workbench

The user interface organizes an applicant’s information and data into an Underwriter’s Workbench that contains a variety of tools:

Graphical depiction of a life insurance applicant's medical history.

Applicant Ailment Storyline

The storyline is a graphical depiction of overlapping diagnoses, treatments and prescriptions plotted over the applicant’s life. It allows underwriters to spend more time reviewing important facts and making correlations, and less time manually jumping between applications searching for information.

Every piece of content related to an applicant resides in a folder for easy finding. Each folder has a priority rating so you know what to focus on first. They also have forecasted estimate-to-complete (ETC) dates so you can keep your client up-to-date on when you expect to reach a decision.

Search across repositories for ailments, prescriptions, etc.

Diagnosis Search Interface

The comprehensive search capability looks for key medical terms such as references to cancer or prescription drugs no matter which repository the document is in.

View the status of a life insurance application.
