Accessing the ISO ClaimSearch® System
You can access the ISO ClaimSearch® system through two convenient channels:
Internet access through ISOnet®
All ISO ClaimSearch functions are available through ISOnet® — the Internet information service for insurance professionals. The available functions include:
Access is available only to authorized users, ensuring privacy and protection to all ISO ClaimSearch data. For more on protection of the database, see the ISO ClaimSearch Privacy and Security Policy.
ISOnet provides quick and easy access to the ISO ClaimSearch database through a user-friendly web interface.
Communicating through central claims systems
The system can receive claims and return reports through secure FTP or IBM's WebSphereMQ (formerly MQ Series). If you wish to report through a central system, Verisk will supply complete reporting specifications.
To submit first and subsequent notice-of-loss information to ISO ClaimSearch through a host-to-host connection, you can use the ACORD XML standard for claims-investigation messages.
With the Universal Format you get more data fields — for more lines of insurance — than previous methods of reporting. And the Universal Format gives you a single data-entry point for multiline claims. It is also the delivery mechanism for new services, such as claims scores.
The Universal Format makes all the benefits of ISO ClaimSearch available to all your claims professionals.
