Session Abstracts

Enlyte Technology: Driving Value through Integration and Innovation Casualty | 1:15 pm | Ocean Ballroom
Join casualty product leaders from Enlyte's family of companies for an informative panel on the innovation and collaboration driving greater value creation in your claims workflow. Panelists will share details on pharmacy risk modeling, network optimization, straight-through processing, advanced decision support and other technology solutions unlocking value across the entire claims landscape.

Vehicle Technology and Its Impact on Collision ClaimsAuto Physical Damage | 1:15 pm | Cabana C
Rapid advancements in vehicle technology are changing the way claims are managed. Today, 93 percent of new automobiles come equipped with at least one Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) and by 2025, more than 21 million passenger electric vehicles (EVs) will be on the road. When involved in an accident, our complex automobiles can drive up claim costs and cycle time. They can also introduce new challenges to the delivery of proper and safe repair. Learn how Mitchell is addressing these challenges by leveraging its expertise and innovative solutions to meet the needs of these "computers on wheels".

Speed, Weed and the Future of Driving with Highway Loss Data Institute's Matt Moore (1 Hour)Auto Physical Damage & Auto Casualty | 2:30 pm | Ocean Ballroom
Increasing speed limits, legalizing marijuana, and developing faster and more advanced cars have all impacted automobile insurance. In this presentation, Matt Moore, Senior Vice President from the Highway Loss Data Institute (HLDI) discusses how changes to laws and technology have affected driver safety and collision claims. Included is a detailed overview of marijuana use and crash risk. HLDI also reveals the results of its study into which Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are—and are not—reducing vehicle accidents and their severity.

Real Technology Solutions Meet Third Party ChallengesAuto Casualty | 2:30 pm | Cabana AB
Between increasing claim costs, staff shortages, increased virtual work and the disruption of ever-evolving technology, third party liability insurers have a lot to manage to keep claims moving forward. In this session, Enlyte experts will outline how leveraging technology can alleviate some of these challenges – from increasing straight-through processing automation to strengthening expertise to improve training and onboarding for new adjusters. Experts will also explore proven strategies to mitigate future challenges through increased use of technology.

Compliance in a Digital WorldCasualty | 2:30 pm | Coronet
Regulatory and industry pressures, rising medical costs, newly enacted privacy laws and the constantly evolving cyber security landscape require new and innovative technologies to stay ahead of the curve. During this session, experts will share the latest compliance insights executives need to know and provide an insider's look into how Mitchell's advanced technology is used to deliver regulatory expertise and ensure privacy and security.

Claims Automation: Separating Fact from FictionAuto Physical Damage | 3:45 pm | Cabana C
Claims automation. Touchless estimating. Straight-through processing. These topics are constantly in the news and top of mind for auto insurers. Despite that, the industry is just beginning to align its expectations with the current state of the technology. In this session, we provide an update on how far AI-enabled automation has come and how much farther still it must go to deliver on the promise of no-touch claims. We also introduce a new way of thinking about automation, one that involves a structured approach and the development of key performance indicators to help organizations measure their progress in streamlining the claims process.

1 + 1 = 3 Technology & Talent Delivering Better Results for First Party AutoAuto Casualty | 3:45 pm | Cabana AB
For several years, the insurance industry has been experiencing a talent crisis as the existing workforce ages and new, incoming workers have been in short supply—an issue only magnified by the "Great Resignation." With the loss of their most tenured employees, auto insurance claims teams must pivot to support operations with new and fewer colleagues, while positioning for a future workforce altogether. In this session, you will hear talent and technology strategies to support this transition, including how automation and data analytics deliver exponential benefits for first party auto casualty claims teams. Experts will discuss the current labor trend pressures and will explore new ways to mitigate future staffing shortages as changes to the workplace continue to evolve.

Technology - Your Best Strategy for the Next Generation WorkforceWorkers’ Compensation | 3:45 pm | Coronet
Even before the "Great Resignation" began, the workers' compensation workforce was facing unprecedented talent loss, with many of its most tenured employees slated to retire within a short span of time. Now, as even more employees transition or switch industries, organizations are trying new tactics to keep their operations running efficiently. In this session, Enlyte experts will offer data, analytic and automation strategies that workers' compensation claims organizations can deploy to help their teams deliver best-in-class practices while building the claims management workforce of the future.

Casualty User Experience for the FutureCasualty | 9:00 am Wednesday | Ocean Ballroom
Staffing changes, technology changes, operational changes – the future of claims will be underscored by a need to align and simplify experiences through the innovative use of technology. In this session, experts will share their vision for user experience over the next 1-2 years, and attendees will participate in an interactive discussion about what the future of user experience could be in the years beyond.
