“CLARA Analytics is leading the way — not just in the practical application of AI to achieve real-world results,” said Rangaraj, “but also in the innovative approaches it has brought to its use of technology, employing serverless architecture and other game-changing strategies that ultimately produce even more value for CLARA’s customers. I’m very happy to be joining an organization that has staked out such a strong leadership position in this industry.”
CLARA has also hired Mubbin Rabbani to be its new VP of Product. Rabbani has over 15 years of product management experience focusing on commercial insurance claims. Prior to joining CLARA, he served in senior product leadership positions at Liberty Mutual, Agero, and Deloitte.
As a member of CLARA’s executive leadership team reporting directly to the CEO, Rabbani will steward the company’s product vision, ensuring that CLARA’s offerings continue to build even greater customer value. “I’m excited to be joining CLARA Analytics,” said Rabbani. “This company has demonstrated that AI can generate very meaningful ROI in the claims management space. They’re leading the way on the focused, practical use of AI in ways that complement the skills and professional judgment of experienced claims managers. It’s not just good for insurers, it directly benefits injured workers as well because CLARA’s technology drives better medical outcomes. That’s positively impacting people’s lives, and I’m excited to be part of it.”
“Our product links technology to business value,” added Wilson. “But we’re also improving people’s everyday lives, lightening the load for overburdened claims managers and helping injured employees recover more quickly.
