Sanvartis/ Wellmo: Jointly developing new digital health services for insurers
Duisburg, November 13th, 2017 - Sanvartis GmbH and the mobile health platform Wellmo have decided to jointly develop a new range of data-driven digital health services. Wellmo aims to replicate its success -together with Sanvartis - in the Nordics and Benelux region by helping German insurers create digital health offerings for their members.
A spin-off from Nokia’s health division, Wellmo’s white label platform and partner network help insurers develop branded digital products and services that positively motivate users to stay healthy. Wellmo lets insurers utilize the best content and service partners to complement in-house resources, and helps integrate all necessary service features into one application.
Wellmo CEO Jaakko Olkkonen believes Sanvartis’ market position and healthcare expertise makes it a perfect addition to Wellmo’s growing portfolio of European service partners.
“It is my pleasure to announce our partnership with Sanvartis. Sanvartis is known in Germany for their strength in telehealth, and we are excited to help a leading local health expert develop new digital health services for its customers and their members,” said Olkkonen.
Sanvartis CEO Manuel Ebner is excited by the partnership’s potential. “We need to offer digital solutions to our customers so insurers can serve their members in the most convenient way. We chose Wellmo’s team of experts and proven platform to extend our service to digital and mobile. This way we have access to the best technology and can focus our own efforts on the content and services, our real area of expertise.” said Ebner.
Wellmo was founded in 2012 with the aim of bringing health insurers closer to their customers through new scalable technologies. Wellmo is backed by funding from private investors.
Wellmo’s portfolio of clients include second largest Finnish insurer LocalTapiola. Smart Life Insurance, a new innovative life insurance product powered by Wellmo, has had a positive impact on LocalTapiola sales. Other clients include Dutch insurer a.s.r. and Poland’s Medicover.
