Royal Society of Medicine

6 CPD Points
This meeting will explore how digital health and insurance can be mutually beneficial by enabling insurance companies to get a better handle on the risk of their insured's. This in turn should both improve the price that insurance companies charge for health insurance and increase their sales. If those insured then recognise the further financial benefits they can gain from further lowering their risk levels, and thus taking greater responsibility for their own health and wellbeing, the population impact could be massive.
This meeting represents one of a long line of ‘firsts’ for the Royal Society of Medicine which has never held a meeting to discuss this topic previously.
Any section could have an interest in this topic as it is generally applicable across all specialties. Perhaps greater interest could be had in non-infectious long-term conditions like cardiac and pulmonary specialties.
As insurance is in the UK a private sector-only consideration, private sector organisations like insurance companies and large private medical organisations would likely be the main targets, although there are big opportunities here e.g. for Public Health England.
