What we know about our health has long been evolving but we now stand on the edge of a revolution in healthcare that could develop at a pace not seen before. Recent developments, such as the roll out of the Genomics Medicine Service and the use of AI in diagnostics, signal a revolution in accurate diagnoses and wider use of personalised medicine with greater sources of information. These changes will benefit individuals and society, fundamentally changing healthcare and what we all know about our own health.  

However, central to these changes is the need to engender trust in how information about individuals is used by healthcare providers and the third parties such as health and protection insurers.Insurers have a choice to use technology to optimise individual customers and homogenise their risk pools – or can go the other way and polarise risk, reducing access.Can insurers overcome historic barriers in trust to utilise revolutionary change to evolve and support consumers in living a healthier and protected life or will concerns in use of data and access to insurance leave insurers at odds with the customer at large?

This event will explore the opportunities and the challenges, looking at the rapid developments of today and the possibilities of tomorrow.
