In our new video series, I sat down with a friend and industry colleague Nichole Myers from Swiss Re to discuss various topics related to use of electronic medical data within the life, disability and long-term care industry. The purpose of our discussion is to bring our joint experiences together, share feedback that we hear from the carriers we work with and help educate the industry as a whole.
Nichole speaks frequently on the topic of electronic medical data and, as SVP, Underwriting Propositions Lead for the Americas at Swiss Re, brings the perspective of a reinsurer to the conversation. As Director of Business Development at MIB and a frequent speaker myself on the use of electronic medical data, I bring the point-of-view of a partner providing data to the industry. Since we are both former underwriters, we also bring to the table an understanding of both the challenges and rewards of the use of electronic medical data in underwriting.
In our first video, Nichole and I discussed some of the challenges we hear from carriers when working to integrate electronic medical data into their production environment.
Please take a moment to watch this short video. I would love to hear about your experiences in integrating electronic medical data into your own workflows. Email me at CMcAvinn@mib.com and let’s talk!
