GIDE: A Comprehensive Group Insurance Solution that Empowers the Industry
"We will continue to increase our investment in products and technologies to enhance our leading position in the group insurance field," said Daniel Ren, founder and CEO of Insgeek. "The release of the GIDE system will provide new impetus for technology empowerment and the build out of a group insurance ecosystem, while opening the door to the exploration of further possibilities through continuous technological innovation based on the digitalization of group insurance."
Following more than 10 years of rapid development, China's individual health insurance market has started to experience declining growth rates, while group health insurance packages for employees have been gaining momentum and are entering a stage of rapid growth. In recent years, China's corporate group insurance segment has grown year by year to now account for 30% of the health insurance market and is expected to approach 500 billion yuan by 2026. Data shows that the U.S. commercial health insurance market increased nearly 200 times to US$867.5 billion from 1960 to 2017, of which 80% was contributed by group insurance.
Despite the rapid development, there are still many pain points that need to be addressed through technology. The inherent complexity of group insurance makes technological innovation more difficult. The newly released GIDE will provide an open market place that will greatly reduce the entry threshold for brokers, agencies. and insurers. Powered by cutting-edge technologies in GIDE system, Insgeek also provides industry leading services and capabilities to eliminate the need for insurer to build such service infrastructure, and to ensure that end customer enjoys highest-standard service.
Insgeek also released a white paper on group insurance digital interfaces, setting a series of technical and data standards for industry players going digital.
