We were delighted to take part in the Health Insurance Innovation Summit last month. Appropriately for a conference about innovation, it was held in an innovative format: online and asynchronously. That means that we can now share our presentation with you:
We can recommend you check out the rest of the conference as well. There were many interesting talks.
Our presentation focused on some of the macro trends shaping the modern world: increased mobility, rising healthcare costs & the impact of technology on both these areas.
People around the world now take more than 1.2 billion international trips each year. There are more than 200 million people living outside their country of origin — for work, for study, for love or just to explore the world. Long gone are the days when international travel was expensive and exotic. Today we can all be Phileas Fogg.
But what does that mean for the services we consume? We expect our lifestyles to travel with us. Whether that’s movies and music or the ability to FaceTime or Skype with family and friends. But what about healthcare? How can we deliver high-quality healthcare — that is sensitive to people’s cultural, not just biological needs — no matter where they are in the world?
We look forward to your feedback on our presentation.
