Salus Workers’ Compensation, LLC (Nashville, Tenn.), a nationwide MGA and third-party administrator, has selected Origami Risk’s (Chicago) Insurance Solution Suite for the implementation of a single platform for claims adjudication, reporting, and delivery of enhanced client services.

“During the past several years, Salus has been aggressively pursuing strategic acquisitions, growing our TPA, MGA and MGU capabilities across the country,” comments Liam Barry, CTO, Salus Workers’ Compensation. “To deliver consistently high levels of service, leverage scale and streamline workflows we needed a versatile insurance technology provider that could respond quickly to our need for data consolidation and modernization.”

“Origami has proven to be an ideal partner, delivering and implementing a state-of-the art solution within a substantially compressed timeframe,” he adds.

Later this year, Salus plans to activate a dedicated portal for customers and policyholders to report claims and gain valuable insight into their loss data—which Barry describes as a “one-stop shop,” according to a vendor statement. Origami says its technology’s modern architecture readily facilitates the integration of data from a wide range of legacy systems, helping Salus maintain its rapid growth trajectory while sustaining its acquisition model. The vendor also notes that its claims administration solution readily incorporated Salus’ proprietary claims protocol.

“We selected Origami to support Salus’ aggressive growth strategy, drive efficiencies, assist with regulatory compliance, and enable our adjusters to focus on our customers,” says Lisa Zimmerman, VP, TPA Services, Salus. “Within a short timeframe, Origami met all our immediate needs, including delivering a configuration that supports the data and workflows required by our proprietary Salus Claims Protocol. Going forward, we’re expanding our data capture capabilities in Origami and exploring tools to enhance service and drive efficiencies.”
