Case Study /
The client's challenge
A major government insurer wanted to benchmark their operational expenses against other comparable schemes in Australia and overseas
What Finity did
An expense 'baseline' for the insurer was established after analysing a detailed breakdown of historical and current operating expenses . A similar process was then undertaken for 20 other comparable schemes both locally and globally.
Our study identified where the insurer sat relative to other schemes in terms of operational efficiency. We identified best practice and provided timelines for how quickly the insurer might be expected to move towards these improved outcomes.
Focus on Mental Health
Our extensive research confirms mental health claims are different from other personal injury or illness claims, requiring different approaches to deliver optimal outcomes. We can help you refine your operations and improve outcomes.Download brochure
