LexisNexis(R) Risk & Information Analytics Group Launches Accurint(R) for Insurance Plus, To Help Validate Claims and Combat Fraud Data Visualization and Link Analysis Tool Maps Complex or Hidden Connections between Entities NEW YORK--(Business Wire)-- LexisNexis(R) Risk & Information Analytics Group has released Accurint(R) for Insurance Plus, a data visualization and link analysis tool developed to help claims and investigative professionals uncover, interpret and map relationships between entities by displaying a graphical chart of the connections between people, businesses, assets, locations and events. Insurance fraud is one of America's largest criminal industries costing Americans at least $80 billion a year, or nearly $950 per family, as estimated by the Coalition Against Insurance Fraud. Accurint for Insurance Plus helps to validate claims and combat fraud, waste and abuse. Accurint for Insurance Plus, is part of the Fraud Prevention solution by LexisNexis Risk & Information Analytics Group. Developed with industry collaboration, Accurint for Insurance Plus offers both mapping and satellite imagery in one combined tool, and is geared to meet the needs of insurance professionals including Special Investigative Units, Claims, Audit, Corporate Security, Catastrophe and Commercial Underwriting. "Investigating insurance claims can be a cumbersome, expensive challenge," said Jan Tankersley, vice president of insurance and health care solutions for LexisNexis Risk & Information Analytics Group. "By offering a simpler, more affordable and efficient way to collect and analyze massive amounts of investigative data, Accurint for Insurance Plus can help insurance professionals do their jobs more quickly and efficiently." This data visualization helps insurance professionals triage the loss notifications or claims they receive for suspected abuse and fraud investigations, assess risk on claims, and verify and validate information submitted on auto, property, disability, life and health claims. Industry experts have noted that major fraud trends of 2006 included medical fraud rings, invasive health schemes, and auto rate evasion Unlike many other data visualization products, Accurint for Insurance Plus was developed for individual investigators rather than company analysts, and provides easy, economical access to both external and internal data sources. "Although Accurint for Insurance Plus is sophisticated enough for a high-level investigator, it does not require extensive training," said Tankersley.
