Urix Announces Predictive Modeling Solutions for Workers' Compensation and Short and Long Term Disability Claims Management.

BOSTON -- Urix announces that DxCG, a world premier provider of science-based predictive modeling solutions and the science inside the Urix business intelligence solutions, has developed a new Integrated Disability Management Solution to help insurance carriers and employers manage escalating medical costs from workers' compensation related injuries as well as short and long term disabilities.

DxCG's first predictive modeling solution for Disability Management will allow clients to apply the same scientifically advanced predictive models that have been used for managing population health for the group health insurance industry for over ten years.

"We've heard many clients discuss their interest in using predictive models within their claim operations as a means of facilitating earlier claims resolution. By identifying the best cases for either settlement, return to work or earlier referral to case management, predictive modeling results help focus a Claim Adjuster's case load on the most 'actionable' or 'resolvable' claims -- this is the work smarter not harder approach" said Kathleen Larson Day, Vice President of Product Management at Urix/DxCG.

Using DxCG best in class predictive models, clients will have the ability to identify high-cost claims quickly in order to improve focused service to injured or disabled workers and significantly help manage costs. The models also provide medical cost and utilization information that can be used for reserve setting and detecting fraud and abuse.

DxCG Senior Scientist Rong Yi, PhD, recently spoke at the World Research Group's 4th Annual Predictive Modeling Implementation for Workers' Compensation. Her presentation entitled "Identifying High Cost Claims Using Predictive Models" received much anticipation from attendees who wanted to apply the sophisticated science to increase the accuracy and quality of workers' compensation claims analysis.
