Insurers are using predictive modeling more often today to supplement Insurance Fraud investigations. The models use available structured or unstructured data to provide a probability of potential fraud or risk.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) enables data collection and organization to perform analytics that is infused into the claims process for example bringing better-quality referrals. Combined with Machine Learning, an Insurer can learn from their data and expose trends and other sources of potential fraud.
Once claims are alerted to potential fraud, Explainability exposes the potential risk or what caused an alert to fire. The Claims Representative or SIU Investigator can confirm the risk in the alert and make an intelligent, confident settlement.
From an Investigator’s point of view, what is Explainability? How are Models developed and what makes a successful Model? How does AI and Machine Learning impact the modeling process?
