Keais Records Retrieval Launches SmartChron™ Web-Based Litigation Management, Enabling Insurance Carriers, Self-Insured Companies and Law Firms to Accelerate and Enhance Records Review

Complete case chronology, review-ready records and easy nuance identification let firms conduct insightful data analysis, negotiate more strategically and reduce cycle times.

HOUSTON--()--Keais Records Retrieval today launched SmartChron™, the first data retrieval solution that gives insurance companies, self-insured companies and law firms a complete, secure, web-based case chronology of review-ready records. SmartChron’s proprietary technology replaces the manual process of data gathering with a user-friendly solution that delivers data intelligence with speed, accuracy and cost savings.

Two years in the making, SmartChron was developed by a team of data extraction experts and has been beta tested by members of the legal and insurance communities.

“Before SmartChron, I would spend hours putting records in chronological order,” said Julia Bryant, Paralegal - White, Fleischner & Fino, LLP, who participated in the SmartChron beta testing. “It is innovative and easy to use. SmartChron is a wonderful product that I trust.”

With the click of a button, SmartChron users easily view data in aggregate, reducing the time required to chronologically organize a case from hours to seconds. As a result, legal teams have more time to plan their strategy and make a greater material impact on the claim or case. SmartChron’s unprecedented capabilities empower users to:

  • Accelerate cycle time and expedite case resolution
  • Immediately locate desired information using keyword search, the ideal alternative to time-consuming manual searches
  • Easily identify nuances in records, pinpoint treatment patterns, determine lapses and gaps in treatment, highlight discrepancies or missing pages and uncover evidence of drug purchases
  • Stay abreast of new SmartChrons with automated daily notifications
  • Lower legal expenditures, settlement costs and allocated loss adjusting expenses (ALAE) by delivering data to all stakeholders in real time, so that collaborative decisions can be made faster

“SmartChron redefines the process of claims analysis and decision making, replacing the inefficient process of organizing paper files for weeks at a time to prepare the case,” said Steve Schumacher, President of Keais. “Using advanced data management technologies, including optical character recognition (OCR), SmartChron can compile thousands of pages in a single PDF that’s accurate, organizable and insightful. This higher level of data intelligence empowers legal teams to improve outcomes, reduce costs and accelerate case resolution.”

From data research and retrieval to intelligence analysis and sharing, Keais ensures that the exacting requirements of SOC2 compliance are met or exceeded, adhering to SOC’s information security policies and procedures set forth for the security, availability, processing, integrity and confidentiality of customer data.
