Leading Swiss health and Insurtech company dacadoo turns ten years old, keeps shaping the digitalization efforts of life and health insurers worldwide with digital health engagement and health risk quantification

Zurich, Switzerland – the pioneering growth-stage health and Insurtech company dacadoo celebrates its tenth-year anniversary stronger than ever.

dacadoo, founded in Zurich, Switzerland in November 2010, develops technology solutions for digital health engagement and health risk quantification, partnering with insurers as well as corporate health service providers to bring its technology to market worldwide. The dacadoo Digital Health Engagement Platform helps users live healthier and more active lives through a combination of motivational techniques from behavioral science, gamification and social networking, as well as artificial intelligence and automated coaching.

Besides the Digital Health Engagement Platform, the cutting-edge tech company also supports accelerated underwriting and dynamic pricing through its health risk quantification offering provided with the Risk Engine for insurers, which calculates relative risks on various mortalities and morbidities in real time.

The go-to-market was always focused on a Business-to-Business-to-Consumer (B2B2C) approach and the client base has grown significantly in the past years on a worldwide basis, with clients such as Aon, Manulife, T&D Holdings, Falck Healthcare, Seguros Unimed, Generali Hellas and strategic partners such as Accenture, Oracle and Loylogic.

Working to make the world a healthier place

From its early stages, dacadoo has dedicated its work to find a scientific and holistic solution to measure health globally. The company spent five years developing its Health Score with the help of data scientists, doctors, psychologists and the engine is now based on over 300 million person years of clinical data. The dacadoo Health Score is in process of establishing itself as a global standard, allowing an individual’s overall health to be measured in a single number ranging from 0 to 1,000.

Due to its hard work in the fields of health and wellbeing, dacadoo has been recognized by many international awards, as recently by the MongoDB ‘Data for Good’ and ‘Innovator of the Year’ Award, which seeks to bring a spotlight to creators that are taking on some of the most challenging issues affecting society and the planet, transforming the future and making the world a better place.
