Swiss Re Reinsurance Solutions has forged a partnership with digital platform Wysa to introduce an AI-based insurance-specific mental health app for assessing the risk score of individuals.
Dubbed Wysa Assure, the app merges risk capabilities and the scoring system of Swiss Re and the AI-steered mental health solutions of Wysa to meet the requirements of insurers and their clients.
Wysa Assure’s AI chatbot in the app leverages cognitive behavioural therapy principles.
This tool facilitates the delivery of on-demand support to customers, aiding them to navigate through evidence-based mental health resources opted based on their requirements.
The app focuses on customer anonymity to deal with data protection issues and smoothly merges self-management modules and support networks of insurers.
This strategy is aimed at nurturing proactive mental well-being management and urges to seek early support and alleviate deterioration of symptoms, thereby supporting claims savings for insurers.
