Outcome reports

Outcome reports show where the claims organization standsrelative to costs, inventory, etc., so that management candetermine overall performance and results. Normally segmented at arelatively high level (such as claim type or organizational unit),outcome reports are not intended to evaluate performance at theindividual or law firm level, but to provide information aboutoverall results.
