News Digest October 2022
A curation of news stories impacting health insurance and brokers, population health management and health tech from last month.
The big IPMI news of October relates to two reports on the positive recovery of the segment during 2022.
This is in line with even greater growth in the travel segment of >25% CAGR. Both are for sure good news. But then we hear that 2022 has seen the biggest annual increase US PMI prices since 2005, a whacking 28% since September 2021!
FOMO continues in the US HI segment over primary care assets and behavioural care is also ‘up there’ in the popularity stakes, while mental health apps become even more niche oriented. Yet again SE Asia front-runs with new digital hubs and insurances, and there is positive news around the travel and health markets in China.
Continued good results amongst intermediaries may have been too tempting for the global tech firms set to enter the segment with powerful data tools and techniques. And while digital health funding is down vs 2021, there is still quite a lot of it.
