  • Patent number: 4975840
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for evaluating the insurability of a potentially insurable risk has data bases for storing information, and the ability to correlate selected elements of information in respective data bases. Certain elements are assigned weights on the basis of predetermined relationships existing between elements of information in one data base and corresponding elements of information in another. Information is displayed from a data base for use by an underwriter in assigning a weight to a selected element, or an expert module corresponding to the selected element is identified and used for assigning the weight. A risk classification is determined for the potentially insurable risk from the weights assigned. The system can identify additional elements of information required for evaluating the potentially insurable risk, and can request entry of such information for subsequent storage.
