Data and analytics

Data-driven analytics allow us to align the right team member with the right claim, striking a balance between effective claim management and cost efficiency. CSS collects structured and unstructured data generated from 30 million medical bills and 2 billion claim notes. This data fuels reporting via e-CARMA®, our top-rated4 risk management information system you can use to monitor the status of claims, evaluate trends and measure our performance as your third-party administrator. Our predictive models and analytics tools include:

  • A workers compensation fraud model that uses machine learning technology, increasing our fraud identification rate by 20%.5
  • Automated social listening tools search publicly posted content for signs of fraud, including injured employee’s physical activity, employment, prior injuries and more.
  • A nurse assignment model that continually monitors the severity of a claim to help determine the optimal time for nurse medical case management involvement.
  • Subrogation triage model that helps us pursue every reasonable opportunity for recovery.

Medical innovations

CSS is innovating TPA services to provide the best care for injured employees at the lowest cost available. Using CustomCareSM, a cutting-edge claim management process, employers and their injured employees benefit from a balance of digital self-service and personal connections that enable better workers compensation claim outcomes.

  • Nurse Triage Model helps determine the appropriate level of care.
  • ConciergeCLAIM® Nurse program co-locates a CSS nurse for a face-to-face experience.
  • Virtual Visit allows injured employees to have real-time video chats with our Claim and medical professionals.
  • Early Severity Predictor® helps us identify injuries that could cause employees to suffer from chronic pain.

For cases of potential fraud, our investigative services team conducts interviews and obtains surveillance video, among other investigative strategies.

  • Specialized resources for prosecution and surveillance help ensure optimal results.

Resources for injured employees

Injured employee portal

We offer a secure, web-based tool to help injured employees navigate the workers compensation claim process. It features ePay enrollment, two-way document sharing, FAQs and secure messaging with the CSS Claim team.

Nurse case management

Working alongside Claim professionals, our staff nurses ensure your injured employees are fully supported throughout their claim and recovery. We focus on more than just the physical injury and address both psychological and social factors that may inhibit recovery.

Virtual visit

Injured employees, employers and providers have access to real-time video chats with Medical Case Managers and Claim professionals. The tool offers a quick and easy way to collect time sensitive information, such as updates to the file immediately following a medical provider visit and scene photos, which might be relevant to determining compensability.

Early severity indicator

This program uses data and analytics to identify which injured employees are at a higher risk of developing chronic pain.


The TravCare® Nurse Line allows injured employees to receive immediate medical guidance after an injury. Workers are connected to a nurse who can recommend the appropriate level of care after a workplace injury. This helps the injured employee find the best course of treatment and avoids unnecessary ER visits.
