Paratus Partners LLC is a provider of third-party liability claims management for healthcare service providers (mainly hospital systems). Hospitals incur losses because they fail to recover all their costs related to a covered claim. Especially claims covered through a third party liability insurer are sometimes too cumbersome to handle by a hospital. Most hospitals do not have sufficient resources or expertise to coordinate the benefit payments across the multiple carriers found in third party liability cases.
Paratus and the IRisk Lab are working closely together to address research questions with regards to claims management. In a series of projects, we aim in creating a model that will help Paratus to (a) provide better predictability to their clients and (b) enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of their workflow processes.
