ISO wins IT award for personal injury claims tool
by Gill Montia
ISO’s Personal Injury Claims Assessment Service (PICAS) has won the Consumer IT Innovation of the Year award at this year’s Chartered Institute for IT (BCS) UK IT Industry Awards.
PICAS fully digitises personal injury claims reporting by integrating the different systems and steps involved in settlement.
According to ISO, it can reduce the life cycle of a personal injury claim from a normal time frame of around 358 days to 133 days, by seamlessly connecting various stakeholders, including claimant lawyers, medical reporting agencies and insurers.
Commenting on the award, Joe Pendle, director of client services at ISO, said: “To be recognised by the wider IT community is a testament to the vision and pioneering work of everyone involved in connecting the various IT systems to overcome traditional delays in the personal injury claims process.”
She added: “PICAS is designed to help all parties within the claims life cycle — solicitors, insurers, and claimants — but above all, to settle claims quickly and fairly for the claimant.”
