A new study of insurance chief information and chief technology officers from Europe and the U.S. says that a small percentage of insurers are considering the idea of outsourcing portions of their claim-adjusting procedures.

Survey respondents all came from the technology sector, and they were asked several questions about their companies from an IT perspective.

In Europe, that percentage jumped to more than 12 percent.
