Curam Software Announces Curam Workers' Compensation(TM)



    Partners with WorkSafeBC and the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board of
Ontario to Deliver Claims Management Solution to the Workers Compensation
Market

    HERNDON, VA., April 25 /CNW/ - Curam Software, the leading provider of
Social Enterprise Management (SEM) software solutions, today announced the
release of Curam Workers' Compensation(TM), a COTS solution that empowers
workers' compensation agencies to effectively manage the end-to-end claims
process. Designed in collaboration with WorkSafe British Columbia (WorkSafeBC)
and the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board of Ontario (WSIB), the solution
provides comprehensive and efficient benefits delivery capabilities to
workers' compensation organizations.

    The Curam Workers' Compensation solution addresses the entire claims
lifecycle from claim intake to outcome measurement and evaluation. Curam
Software, WorkSafeBC, and WSIB designed Curam Workers' Compensation to provide
effective citizen-centric, outcomes-focused results for injured workers. Some
key capabilities of the solution include automated claims processing,
eligibility assessment, task and case load management, entitlement assessment,
claims classification, and service planning.

    "The mission of the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board of Ontario is to
administer workplace insurance for employers and their workers province-wide,"
said Val Adamo, vice president and chief information officer, Workplace Safety
and Insurance Board of Ontario. "Curam Workers' Compensation helps us fulfill
our mission by providing case workers with the tools they need to process
claims, track case activity and rectify misclassified claims."

    The Curam Workers' Compensation solution uses a SEM business model, which
allows workers' compensation organizations to take a holistic approach to
managing the delivery of benefits and services from providers to workers. This
business model allows agencies to deliver better outcomes - such as a shorter
return-to-work - through a comprehensive, efficient, and lower cost service
plan.

    "A lack of consistency in claims decision-making, a concern about overall
claims costs, and a need for better communication with our customers has
driven us to help design a better claims management system, which we've found
in this product," said Steve Barnett, vice president and assistant chief
financial officer, WorkSafeBC. "Our goal is to focus our valuable staff
resources on improved customer contact and this product supports our ability
to do just that."

    Underpinned by the Curam Enterprise Framework(TM), the Curam Workers'
Compensation solution leverages a flexible, scalable Service Oriented
Architecture (SOA) enabling lower-risk and lower -cost business and technology
extensions.

    "By collaborating with two large, innovative workers compensation
organizations, we were able to ensure best practice business process
enablement capabilities were incorporated into Curam Workers' Compensation,"
said Ernie Connon, president, Curam Software, Inc. "The solution provides case
workers with a holistic view of each applicant's claim, resulting in more
efficient benefit determination and delivery, resulting in effective citizen
service."

    SEM is a new category of enterprise software that is client-centric and
leverages COTS products to transform as well as modernize health, human
services, labor, and social security agencies. SEM provides comprehensive
enterprise eligibility IT solutions crossing agency boundaries, simplifying
policies, and integrating with existing technology. SEM fosters holistic,
convenient services for citizens, as well as provides screening for needs and
referrals to state and community-based resources.
