CLARA analytics ("CLARA"), the leading provider of artificial intelligence (AI) technology in the commercial insurance industry, today announced that it closed $25 million in Series B funding, bringing its total funding to $36.5 million. The round was led by growth equity firm Aspen Capital Group with participation from Series A lead Oak HC/FT and additional investors. CLARA will use the funds to extend its product suite, attract critical industry talent, and expand its global reach.
CLARA analytics uses both structured and unstructured data to unlock relevant seeds of knowledge from medical notes, bills, and other documents and bring them into a cross-industry data lake to generate valuable predictions and other insights for claims teams. CLARA's suite of AI-based software, which includes CLARA claims, CLARA providers, CLARA litigation as well as its popular Medicare Set-Aside solution, is used by some of the world's leading insurers, including Berkshire Hathaway Homestate Companies, EMC Insurance, Amerisure, and QBE Insurance.
"We are reshaping the entire claims process by analyzing millions of data points and generating meaningful and actionable insights in a matter of seconds," says CLARA analytics CEO Gary Hagmueller.

CLARA litigation recommends optimal litigation and settlement strategies to meaningfully reduce costs. CLARA's Medicare Set-Aside solution instantly compiles and updates MSA reports. The products are designed to integrate and, when used together, drive compound benefits. One insurer using claims and providers, for example, has seen claimants return to work 35% faster in claims processed using CLARA.
The new financing is ideally timed, as COVID-19-related disruptions have generated rising interest in CLARA's approach. Insurers are looking for new tools and additional data to navigate rapid changes in claims, litigation, and health care delivery, ...
