Vivametrica: using intelligence to live life better
Canadian Vivametrica develops predictive analytics for insurers and wellness. Leveraging smartphone and wearable technology, Vivametrica uses digital biomarkers to predict risk for disease, mortality and overall health status. Recent research, including work by their team, has uncovered the importance of physical activity on health and mortality. Their platform provides tools for digital underwriting and new ways to engage policy holders and potential customers.
Vivametrica’s platform has the ability to streamline underwriting using data and technology to potentially replace lengthy questionnaires, blood tests and medical examinations. Their analytics are based on the largest known population-based database in the world. This proprietary data has been collected over years from multiple sources and includes people from Canada, the US and China. Their analytics have been verified by both Munich Re and SCOR, two leading global reinsurers. With SCOR they develop a Biological Age Model for insurance underwriting.
The startup is in the phase of several pilot projects. Vivametrica works with direct carriers in Canada, the US and Asia Pacific market. Vivametrica’s founders are leaders in their respective fields and have won international acclaim and several awards for their research.
