Abstract

An increasing global population, the rise in number of chronic disease patients and the threat of global epidemics have made the way for technology as a potential answer to many of these problems. Health insurance can contribute to the resolution of some of these issues but insurers need to transition from simple “Payers” to “Players” in order to achieve that. They need to become points of reference on which the customer and the health care system can count on. This is possible and is strictly related to connected insurance and in particular to wearables and devices that are able to gather vital data from patients and share them with the care givers.
