Hooper Holmes > Services > Paradex

By: Hooper Holmes  09-12-2011

Paradex™ is an electronic application and exam service designed to collect comprehensive underwriting information faster and more efficiently than traditional methods. Through the use of screen prompts and unique reflexive questions, Paradex™ enables the Insurance Carrier to make faster and more educated underwriting decisions.

The Paradex tele-interview is an applicant's health history that has been obtained by a medically-trained professional in a telephone interview directly with the applicant. Such reports have reflexive (drill-down) questions; which ensures that the greatest possible medical detail is provided. They can also be expanded to include non-health information such as lifestyle or avocation questionnaires. A medically-trained interview professional contacts the applicant to complete the health history interview over the telephone through one of our two professional, dedicated Call Centres (Toronto and Montreal). The completed form(s) are then sent electronically to the insurance company's underwriting department, for immediate evaluation.

“Across the Street, across the Country …. We’ve got you covered!”
