Health: a key issue for AXA
As the world’s third largest health insurer, AXA is already heavily invested in this sector. Indeed, health represents 11% of the group’s total turnover, i.e. 13 billion euros.
Meeting the health sector’s challenges fits perfectly with AXA’s “Payer to Partner” strategy. It represents an opportunity to multiply the interactions with our customers, and to provide them with innovative services: telemedicine, digital platforms, artificial intelligence…
Major innovation opportunities
Today, new technologies are reshaping the health landscape around the world: they are reinventing the patient care relationship and bringing viable solutions to current health challenges (areas without access to medical services, healthcare costs, etc.). AXA has therefore made this subject one of the priorities of its innovation ecosystem.
“The healthcare sector offers huge potential for innovation and interaction with our customers, in line with our ‘payer to partner’ strategy,” said Thomas Buberl, AXA CEO.
Innovating to meet health challenges
For AXA, health innovation enables us to meet key objectives:
- Become the leader in telemedicine
With the French government aiming for 1 million teleconsultations by 2020, there is a growing demand for telemedicine. Qare, a French startup specializing in connecting doctors and patients via video consultation, already has 60,000 users.
- Provide everyone with simplified access to health platforms
Health platforms play a key role in our prevention strategy. The Air Doctor startup, for example, connects travelers with medical specialists when they are abroad.
- Explore AI potential in healthcare solutions
The potential benefits of artificial intelligence are vast: to supplement the diagnosis of practitioners, to bring personalized solutions to patients ... Combining AI and human expertise makes it possible to refine the identification and treatment of pathologies. Apricity is a virtual clinic that uses AI to provide personalized support to couples who are finding it difficult to have a child.
