Wearables and health apps: Moving from promises to solutions

28 November 2018

Location: Rüschlikon/Zurich, Switzerland

About the event

Life and health insurers are expecting the data generated by wearables and health apps to become a major input into their strategies of engagement and health improvement with their customers.

Solutions are being developed that promise business success but are these solutions really delivering on their promises?

This is the third annual health monitoring conference. Leading experts, executives and entrepreneurs will explore devices and apps that are currently in the market, as well as what's being developed, discussing together whether or not they will lead to commercial success.

The format is very interactive to allow the participants to discuss in greater detail the benefits and pitfalls around the actual solutions.

How far away are we from having robust solutions that can improve policyholders health, improve engagement with their policyholders and boost insurers productivity and profitability?

If you work in innovation within the life and health space, you cannot afford to miss this event to find answers to these critical questions.
