Claims valuation vs Claims Automation

Claims valuation and claims automation are two different aspects of the insurance claims process.

Claims valuation refers to the process of assessing the value of an insurance claim. This involves determining the amount of money that the insurer should pay out to the policyholder for their covered loss. Claims valuation typically involves a combination of factors, such as the severity of the loss, the policy terms and conditions, and any applicable deductibles.

Claims automation, on the other hand, refers to the use of technology to streamline and automate the claims process. This can involve using machine learning and artificial intelligence to quickly process claims, reducing the need for manual intervention. Claims automation can also include the use of self-service tools, such as online portals or chatbots, which allow policyholders to report and track their claims without the need for human interaction.

While both claims valuation and claims automation are important aspects of the claims process, they serve different purposes. Claims valuation focuses on accurately assessing the value of the claim, while claims automation aims to improve the efficiency and speed of the claims process through the use of technology.
