Abstract: It is estimated that $80 billion in fraudulent claims are paid out across all lines of insurance each year. This could be either soft or hard fraud, that is perpetrated by lone individuals or organized groups that are quickly learning and exploiting the loopholes in the insurance system. The challenge for most insurers is that detecting, investigating, and mitigating these deceitful claims is a time-consuming and expensive process. Rather than accepting loss to fraud as part of the cost of doing business, insurance companies are enhancing their detection capabilities using machine learning and data science. In this presentation, Joe walks through the strategies and key considerations around implementing insurance fraud analytics. We also look at other use cases where data and analytics can help solve problems in the insurance industry.

Speaker: Joe Paul is a data scientist, management consultant, and project manager with over 15 years of experience in analyzing problems and providing innovative solutions through business analysis and data analytics. He has worked for clients in the Insurance, Health, and Lottery & Gaming, Utilities and Oil and Gas sectors.

Joe heads data analytics at Peace Hills Insurance setting up a new Business Analytics initiative by implementing business processes and technology solutions to integrate and improve the existing Business Intelligence capacity and capability.
