Webinar: Revealing the DNA of Disability Claim Data

Revealing the DNA of Disability Claim Data: Understanding the Timeline and Data Markers that Drive Positive Outcomes

DATE: July 8, 2014

TIME: 11am Eastern Time

July Webinar3Just as human DNA contains data that determines such things as eye color or how the lungs should work. so does your claims data help you to determine the probability of a claimant returning to work or moving from short term disability to long term disability.

You just need to know the right questions to ask at the right points in the lifecycle of the claim in order to help you to better predict recoveries and appropriately triage the claim to optimize the outcome for the insurer, the employer and the claimant.

Join industry experts as they discuss what these key points are and the specific data that helps to predict recovery, including clinical, motivational, and psychological factors.

During this 45 minute webinar, you will:

  • Discover the clinical and non-clinical data that you should be collecting at key points in the disability claim to help predict recovery and optimize outcomes
  • See how FINEOS Claims can help you to collect, analyze, and report on this data for faster time to identify and manage at-risk claimants
  • Learn some practical approaches to managing psychosocial issues through the disability claim process
