New MISMO Workgroup Plans To Standardize The Data Transmission Process To Automate HOI Requests

MISMO, the real estate finance industry’s standards organization, announced that it is seeking participants for a new initiative focused on automating homeowner insurance (HOI) requests.

Today, HOI validation and the exchange of related information is often a very manual process. Standardizing HOI data exchange requests and responses will decrease transaction processing time, increase data accuracy, encourage uniformity across the industry and increase the security around non-public information.

A new development workgroup (DWG) is being formed to lead the initiative and standardize the data transmission procedure used when processing HOI requests. The DWG’s deliverables will include:

·       Documenting the data requirements associated with HOI request and response;
·       Soliciting participation, input, and feedback from industry participants; and
·       Creating a standard request and response in XML and JSON.

“This initiative is another example of how MISMO is creating standards that address industry challenges,” said Seth Appleton, President, MISMO. “This work to standardize the HOI data transmission procedure will mitigate a common pain point for consumers and industry by reducing delays and streamlining this process.”

The HOI Workgroup will conduct regular meetings via conference call and will meet in person at MISMO Summits. This DWG is expected to exist for approximately one year or until it completes its mandate.
