Paper is indispensable in correspondence between insurance policy holders and insurance companies – for example, a form might be sent by fax, while the claim report and supporting documents are sent by post. The problem is that the information that is relevant to the employees who are processing the claim is hidden somewhere in these written documents. This may include address data, contract numbers and transaction numbers, as well as relevant specialist explanations and references. This data can be found in different letters from different solicitors, for example, and transferring it to an IT system is an arduous and monotonous process. This takes up employees’ valuable time, which they need to complete more complex tasks, and is prone to error.

An AI that translates letters into information
How things used to be
Then AI came along
The automatic extraction of structured information from unstructured texts is a typical application for AI solutions. We have developed the Heuristic Claims Management (HCM) solution specially for insurance companies. This application automatically searches through incoming correspondence for relevant information, processes it and supplies it to the responsible systems for further structured processing in the applicable formats, such as XML and JSON.
The data is automatically loaded to the processing system. Having to enter it manually becomes a thing of the past, and further processing is fully digitalised.
The situation today
HCM helps to prevent media discontinuities, increase the processing speed and reduce the error quota.
HCM also allows unstructured information to be processed automatically. This helps companies to achieve their digitalisation goals. Administrators are relieved from having to carry out routine activities and are able to concentrate on more challenging tasks.
Search correspondence, evaluate content, automate editing: In the environment of paper-based communication, an AI application can play to its strengths.
