DATA TRANSLATION

Pub Date: 2019-08-08

Pub Number: US20190244300

A classifier receives policy data corresponding to a new policy. Further, the classifier processes the policy data to classify the policy data into an obligation class and an informational class. An information extractor then extracts metadata from the policy data that is classified into the obligation class. Subsequently, a data translator determines if there is an incremental change in the policy data based on a comparison of the policy data with policy data corresponding to existing policies. On determining the incremental change in the policy data, the data translator translates the policy data that is classified into the obligation class into a rule based on the metadata. A rules engine then receives the rule from the data translator for claims adjudication.
