TRISTAR Embraces Artificial Intelligence with CLARA analytics

Sponsored by Businesswire

(“CLARA”), the leading provider of artificial intelligence
(AI) technology in the commercial insurance industry, today announced
the nation’s largest independent third-party claims administrator, has
deployed CLARA’s entire suite to assist in workers’ comp claim
management. In just the first four months of implementation, TRISTAR has
already experienced a significant reduction in claims work, particularly
when determining Medicare Set-Aside Arrangement (MSA) services, which
can now be done on demand rather than requiring weeks of manual analysis
and calculations. Additionally, TRISTAR has benefited from substantial
cost savings and an increased accuracy of MSAs thanks to CLARA’s
industry-leading machine intelligence.

“It is in TRISTAR’s DNA to seek out ways to improve the products and
services we offer our clients. As we considered ways to innovate and
further refine our offerings and processes, it became obvious that AI
needed to be part of our plans,” said Tom Veale, president and
co-founder of TRISTAR. “We went with CLARA because it is the clear
leader in applying AI to claims, and we’re already delighted with the
results. It has exceeded our expectations on every front.”

CLARA’s offerings are designed to improve claims outcomes in commercial
insurance with easy-to-use AI-based products. Its comprehensive product
suite helps teams reduce various sources of loss costs incurred in
claims handling by keeping claims on track throughout their life cycle.
One of CLARA’s newest and most popular features provides MSA
faster and at vastly reduced costs. This data-driven
solution enables CLARA
users to compile a much richer, more detailed and accurate
analysis of estimated future medical costs for injured workers — all at
the push of a button.

“TRISTAR has taken a bold step forward, and the team understands AI’s
massive potential to disrupt and improve the entire claims process,”
said Jayant Lakshmikanthan, founder and CEO of CLARA analytics. “TRISTAR
is beginning to see how the right kind of AI solutions can solve a whole
host of problems in claims management while saving organizations
millions of dollars each year. Under Tom’s leadership, TRISTAR is
helping to raise the collective standard for commercial insurance
