20 years ago you’d go to a bank, later on you’d call a call center, and now you use an app. Health insurance is still at step 1 of transformation with call centers but has not yet truly digitized.
✅Insurights ‘Zoe’ takes on average 650-pages of coverage information and simplifies every question, enabling ‘Customers’ to become ‘Consumers’ for the first time
✅Zoe uses AI to understand the context and intent of every policy sentence, and will reach out proactively with specific benefits in specific impact areas such as ‘diabetes’
✅This not only helps consumers better manage health it helps employers optimize benefits for the consumer interactions, and lowers the overall costs for the insurer
✅Insurights transforms the way employees interact with their healthcare, getting healthier while spending less time searching information and on the phone
✅As co-CEO, Guy focuses on the people, product and pipeline, by showing the mission and impact having great access to healthcare will have on society
