Manulife has announced a partnership with dacadoo, a Switzerland-based global digital health platform provider, to enhance the insurer’s digital offerings in Asia.

Under this new partnership, dacadoo will strengthen Manulife’s existing health engagement platform, ManulifeMOVE, to help customers better understand their health and develop healthier habits, a press statement said.

The new functionalities will be available to policyholders in Hong Kong, Singapore, and Vietnam from May 2020.

The platform’s enhanced capabilities will make use of dacadoo’s patented Health Score technology, and will provide customers a scientific and simple scoring method to measure how healthy they are and what they need to do to stay healthy, the statement added.

According to dacadoo, the algorithm behind it is based on over 2,500 clinical papers and extensive scientific data. These will help Manulife’s customers to make better health decisions by encouraging them to take simple, preventative actions, such as better nutrition, exercise, and sleep habits, to improve their long-term health.

“We are delighted to be partnering with dacadoo,” said Anil Wadhwani, president and CEO of Manulife Asia. “There is never a better time than now to take control of your health. At Manulife, our goal is to support our customers so they can live ‘everyday better’. The partnership will help us play a more significant role in supporting people’s health. This not only helps customers but also reduces the burden on public health systems.”

“We are very proud to be supporting Manulife in bolstering their engagement with customers in more meaningful ways,” added Peter Ohnemus, president and CEO of dacadoo. “This includes educating more people on health with the Health Score, incentivising healthy behaviour and providing the tools to help them stay engaged to maintain a healthy lifestyle. This is another major commitment by one of the world’s biggest life insurers.”
