SCOR supports Verisk's new technology to help streamline the U.S. Life underwriting process
In an era of increased amounts of electronic data and competitive advantages of fast underwriting decisions, SCOR recently partnered with Verisk, a leading data analytics provider, to develop a new tool that helps Life insurers to fast track applications, by using data from consumer-authorized electronic health records (EHRs). 
 
The EHR Triage Engine streamlines the manual underwriting workflow – reducing decision time from weeks to minutes. The tool bypasses manual workflows, leveraging advanced predictive analytics and automation to digitally ingest and analyze EHRs. It can evaluate 95,000 impairments in five minutes or less, so Life insurers can qualify as much as 85 percent of applicants for coverage with minimal or no underwriter review.

SCOR supports innovative new term Life insurance product

SCOR has been instrumental in developing a new term life insurance policy that pays an employee's beneficiary an amount equal to the policyholder's paycheck every month — for up to 15 years after initial purchase — if they were to pass away during the coverage period. The Salary Protection product issued by MassMutual subsidiary C.M. Life provides more robust coverage amounts than other group life insurance policies, which generally pay out only 1 or 2 times the employee's annual salary.
