Keeping Up with Change in the Insurance Industry

Sonr Global’s most recent Insurtech Briefing (Q4 2021) shows just how much our industry is changing from year to year – and even quarter to quarter. In Q4, the healthtech sector led the way, with 41% of investments placed in companies that are actively helping people around the world lead healthier lives.

Healthtech apps focus on critical improvements in access to care, promote wellness, mental health, and eldercare. These are all topics that have recently been explored by our team as well:

As expected, wearables and smart devices also warranted coverage. Carriers are leveraging new devices and apps to help their policyholders live healthier and more fulfilling lives and to drive down the cost of claims and boost profits – a win/win for both policyholder and carriers.

However, the Sonr briefing isn’t just about health insurance. Life insurance carriers are also exploring how apps can help them build deeper relationships with customers. They may be using next-generation methods, like AI and machine learning, but it’s in service to a holistic approach to the policyholder’s needs.

In collaboration with our parent company, Reinsurance Group of America (RGA), RGAX has been at the forefront of these changes, guiding innovation and building relationships between insurtech developers and carriers when needed. Dennis Barnes, CEO, RGAX and EVP & Chief Marketing Officer, RGA, was interviewed for this recent report. In his remarks, he talks about the evolution of insurance, the challenges involved, and his predictions for the remainder of 2022.

"As the intersection of health and wealth comes closer together, the consumer has to
have trust in an organisation around data usage, because the benefits are clear of sharing
that data, but it has to be protected and consumers have to really trust in these capabilities."
