Google, Amazon, and Apple have all taken moves into the U.S. healthcare industry in recent months with a variety of tech-driven initiatives, and partnering with these new market entrants could provide re/insurers with new inroads into the market, according to GlobalData.
Danielle Cripps, Life & Pensions Analyst at GlobalData, said; “the insurance industry has been nervously tracking the activities of potential alternative providers.
“It was uncertain which area of insurance would witness their entry or when it would occur, but over the last few months it has become increasingly clear that the tech giants are targeting the US healthcare market.”
