Prudential and Babylon Join Forces
Prudential Asia today announced an exclusive partnership with UK-based healthcare technology and services company Babylon Health, to offer customers in up to 12 Asian markets 24/7 access to a comprehensive set of digital health tools. Market-specific details and launch dates for Prudential’s Babylon-enabled health services will be announced later in the year.
“At Prudential, we strive to help customers lead healthier and more secure lives. The strategic partnership with Babylon is consistent with our ambition to address the unmet healthcare needs in Asia where the majority of the population are uninsured or underinsured, alongside an ageing population and escalating medical costs. This partnership accelerates our efforts to provide customer-centric, cost efficient and scalable health and wellness digital services to customers in the region. We are significantly expanding our role from protection to encompass the prevention and postponement of adverse health events. By empowering customers with self-help tools and real-time health information, we believe the Babylon-enabled platform will inspire them to take an active role in understanding and managing their current and future health needs. Prudential remains committed to help both consumers and governments find efficient solutions to expand access to quality healthcare across Asia.” – CEO of Prudential Corporation Asia, Nic Nicandrou.
“Prudential is one of Asia’s leading insurance providers, where its brand is synonymous with trust. We find it humbling that after a lengthy search, Prudential’s forward-looking leadership has put its trust in Babylon as its partner. Both organisations share the same mission, which is to make healthcare accessible and affordable to everyone on Earth. We look forward to working with one of the most innovative leadership teams in insurance, as they work to build on their strong legacy in Asia and continue in their contribution of enhancing the well-being of its people.” – Founder & CEO of Babylon Health, Dr Ali Parsa.
In June, Babylon Health partnered with Samsung to offer its digital healthcare services via the Samsung Health app.
