Injury Schemes Seminar 2013 – Making Better Use of Scheme Data

  • Synopsis

    Accident compensation schemes collect significant information on their claimants, on the services they are being provided and on the interactions between various parties long the way. Historically this information has been used in a limited way. With the assistance of new technologies, many of the restrictions imposed by traditional methods of data mining/data analytics can be overcome and new learnings on the factors impacting on claim outcomes can be obtained. This paper uses real examples to demonstrate how accident compensation analytics can be taken to the next level.
