revue de presse du 15 janvier 2018

Here is a little overview of articles that caught my attention and deserve to appear in the “press review January 15th, 2018”!

Not so accidental road accidents

Mathieu Grossetête is a researcher at the university research center on public action and politics. We propose in the Diplomatic World a reading interestingly, accidentology by car.

It appears that the prevention policies of Road Safety may now reach their limits because they are poorly targeted! Or when the art of data analysis becomes essential to better control a phenomenon, and treat it correctly!

Exciting article to read, which makes us rethink the notion of risk analysis, the perception of events. Finally, it simply invites us to change our way of thinking.

Axa and telemedicine

Jacques de Peretti, CeO of Axa in France announced this week the launch of telemedicine in companies and openness from service to experts.

The second service is the extension of the current service (which I had the opportunity to test personally and which is very good). On the other hand, the first one supposes major investments and questions around the model chosen by Axa.

The question of danger, posed by Olivier Harmant, is in my opinion not relevant.

However, what is the return on investment of this model for a complementary insurer? Indeed, a teleconsultation at the expense of the complementary supposes a cost support higher than the usual part. In order to be financially attractive, such a service needs to be either cheaper than normal consultation or to reduce risks. For now, teleconsultation is a vector of brand image and carries a demarcation line with respect to the competition. However, when everyone will do it, it will be necessary to consider the business model that goes with it!

Finally, should not this be the role of an intermediary platform? The latter would make this service available and look for the insurer who answers it. On the contrary here, it is carried directly by a complementary insurance? What does this say about our public health insurance? A lot of questions, few answers for now!

Insurance innovators – Future of insurance 2017

future of insurance 2017

Version française ici.


Insurance Innovators (an offshoot of Market Force, which I had already talked about here for their report under the same title ) has just published the future of insurance 2017 (Future of General Insurance Report 2017).

7 themes are discussed (for a better readability I separated into several pages):

  • Innovation and Disruption
  • A changing regulatory environment
  • The future of underwriting and pricing
  • Value-added services
  • Touch Millenial Generation
  • Insurance in the Age of Machine Intelligence
  • Fraud in a connected world.

Written in partnership with the Chartered Insurance Institute , and sponsored by IBM, Sas and Smart Communications , this report is generic, but of quality. Market Force believes that insurers are poised to innovate and transform to keep pace with insurance companies, but the pace of transformation is still too slow. A tip: Act now!
