Alula Technologies has announced the availability of HealthCloud v7.0, a significant upgrade to its health and insurance data platform. The new version marks the seventh major release since its initial launch in February 2020.

HealthCloud v7.0 introduces an advancement in data governance, specifically in handling data checks on minors (persons under the age of 18). This enhancement is supported by user navigational changes to the user to verify the date of birth earlier in the process of identity verification with the South African Department of Home Affairs.

Several other updates are also in the pipeline including industry benchmarking for the well-established Health Score. This dynamic Health Score is used by multiple insurance and healthcare providers as a trusted indicator of a person’s overall health status.

Additionally, to provide a more comprehensive view of a customer’s health status and risk profile, Alula will introduce telematics data related to driving behaviour in the near future. This addition provides insurers with a new dimension to improve their understanding of individual behaviour.

There are also plans to incorporate dashboards to highlight trends and identify key consumer risks that will enable insurers and healthcare providers to drill down into more detail and reach conclusions even faster.
