Seguros Bolívar’s Digital Health Engagement Platform uses dacadoo’s technology, built on over 300 million person-years of clinical data and including automated digital health coaching with gamification and social media features, the vendor says. The vendor describes the core of its technology the dacadoo Health Score, which quantifies holistic health in a single number from 0 (poor) to 1,000 (excellent). As the Health Score changes in real time depending on the users’ health, they will be able to make informed decisions about their own lifestyles and opt for healthier habits on a daily basis.

“We are delighted to enter this partnership with Seguros Bolívar, which is one of the leading insurance companies in Colombia,” comments Peter Ohnemus, President and CEO, dacadoo. “We’re proud to provide our technology and to work around the clock to make their Digital Health Engagement Platform a success among their clients.
