Manulife is working with dacadoo, a Swiss-based global digital health platform provider to enhance the company’s digital offerings in Asia. 

Using behavioural science, online coaching functions and curated wellness content, dacadoo will strengthen Manulife’s existing health engagement platform, ManulifeMOVE, to enable customers to more easily understand their health and be guided to develop healthier habits.

The enhanced capabilities, which feature dacadoo’s patented Health Score, will provide customers a new scientific yet simple scoring method to measure how healthy they are and what they need to do to stay healthy.

This personalised offering is based on over 2,500 clinical papers and extensive scientific data from dacadoo. Manulife is simplifying the science and making it easier for ManulifeMOVE customers to make better health decisions by encouraging them to take simple, preventative actions, including on better nutrition, exercise and sleep habits, to improve their long-term health.

“The partnership will help us play a more significant role in supporting people’s health. This not only helps customers but also reduces the burden on public health systems,” said Anil Wadhwani, president and Chief Executive Officer, Manulife Asia.

Peter Ohnemus, president and CEO of dacadoo, said they are supporting Manulife in bolstering their engagement with customers in more meaningful ways.

“This includes educating more people on health with the Health Score, incentivising healthy behaviour and providing the tools to help them stay engaged to maintain a healthy lifestyle,” said Ohnemus.

The new functionalities will be available on the ManulifeMOVE programme and accessible to policyholders in Hong Kong, Singapore and Vietnam from May 2020.
