Pinnacol Assurance Receives ‘Big Data’ Digital Leadership Award

Ventana Research recognizes Pinnacol’s innovative software and robotics solution to help injured workers 

DENVER, Oct. 8, 2018 — Pinnacol Assurance, Colorado’s leading workers’ compensation insurer, was recognized by Ventana Research with a 2018 Digital Leadership Award. Their annual award program honors technology leaders that have transformed business or information technology processes. Ventana Research is a respected benchmarking business technology research and advisory services firm. 

Ventana recognized Pinnacol’s information services teams for developing an innovative software and robotics solution that partially automates the formerly manual processing of incoming medical records while capturing a wealth of data to enable enhanced predictive analytics for determining factors leading to best outcomes for injured workers.  

“We are always looking for more data to help us more deeply understand the needs of injured workers and how to get them back in good health even faster,” said Tamela Vaughn, Pinnacol’s vice president and chief information officer. “We believe this data will help Pinnacol deliver a better experience for injured workers.”

Among the other Digital Leadership Award winners this year were Charles Schwab, USA Today and the University of Texas system.
