Why Is Wheel of LifeTM So Crucial Right Now?

Research has shown that lifestyle choices alone can affect an individual’s overall health outcome by over 40%, so the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle is paramount. Globally, leading causes of death are increasingly being attributed to Non-Communicable Diseases, which are mostly derived from lifestyle components, such as smoking or harmful alcohol intake, lack of exercise or a poor diet.

Additionally, Covid-19 has propelled the importance of preventing poor lifestyle choices that lead to the prevalence of NCDs or preventable chronic health conditions. Data has shown that those suffering from certain conditions, especially obesity, high blood pressure or diabetes, have been hit the hardest by the Cvoid-19 pandemic.

On the other hand, a recent industry survey conducted by dacadoo, states that 81% of Life & Health insurers are now turning their attention to attaching a health and wellbeing proposition to their product offering as a result of the global Coronavirus pandemic.

Quantifying Holistic Health; Revolutionizing The Insurance Landscape

dacadoo's Digital Health Engagement Platform (DHEP), Wheel of LifeTM, presents an engaging experience to combat poor lifestyle choices globally. Encompassing seven different areas, users of Wheel of LifeTM will be able to measure and quantify their physical and mental health, the quality of their sleep and nutrition, their mindfulness, their physical activity and even their smoking habits or alcohol intake; resulting in a single Public number from 0 (poor) to 1,000 (excellent) which is their Health Score.

"The Life & Health insurance industry is getting serious about their digital transformation. This means that they will be moving from a payer only partner to an Insurance as a Service (IaaS) provider. Our Wheel of LifeTM Digital Health Engagement Platform allows insurers to connect and engage with their policyholders in a unique manner, whilst providing a relevant and useful service that helps them lead healthier lifestyles.
