dacadoo Recognized As DIA’s Top 100 Insurtechs To Watch In 2021

We are thrilled to have made the cut of DIA’s top 100 Insurtechs to watch during this year!

The established Digital Insurance Agenda (DIA) has just published their anticipated report on ‘The Insurtechs To Watch During 2021’. In this excellent summary of international Insurtechs, we are proudly surrounded by some truly remarkable talent.

DIA states the reason why they selected dacadoo to be part of the top 100 Insurtechs:

“The dacadoo Health Score is based on body, mind and lifestyle, thus representing holistic health, and on over 300 million person-years of clinical data. It is the only existing index that tracks health and wellbeing holistically in real time. It makes sense out of a large amount of health and wellbeing data, simplifying the health status of an individual into just one number between 1 and 1000, so that it can be universally understood. Based on the calculated Health Score, they are then able to give personalized advice and guidance for each user of the dacadoo platform on how to obtain a healthier lifestyle.”

As mentioned in the report, “People are embracing digital technology and insurers need to invest in building the digital bridge to their clients. At the same time, it has become evident that modifiable risk factors like exercise, nutrition, smoking, drinking and stress are big drivers of chronic diseases. Behavioral change will therefore become increasingly critical to keep people healthy and thus to keep healthcare costs under control.”

Indeed, research has shown that digital health tracking has become mainstream during 2020, with around 54% of consumers utilizing digital health tracking tools.

Plus, modifiable lifestyle components have been known to account for 40% of an individual’s overall health outcome. On the other hand, 81% of Life and Health insurers surveyed say they are now turning their attention to attaching a health and wellbeing proposition to their product offering as a result of the global Covid-19 pandemic; making dacadoo a one-stop solution for insurers wishing to grow and succeed in the current era.

We are truly gratified to see our efforts recognized by an organization that is so well regarded in the insurance landscape and we are also glad to see DIA bringing the spotlight into these crucial issues that affect not only insurers, but all consumers around the world.

You can now read the full DIA report online, watch our President & CEO Peter Ohnemus at the DIA InsurMezzo, or read through a previous DIA white paper where they also featured dacadoo.
