Health Gorilla Enters the Life Insurance Market

Health Gorilla, the leading aggregator of health data in the United States and Latin America, is proud to announce that we are now supporting the life insurance industry.  

Our platform securely provides life insurance underwriters, re-insurers, and risk assessors with HIPAA-compliant, permission-based access to aggregated and normalized health data through our FHIR-based clinical data APIs, allowing insurers to expedite and scale the way they retrieve and analyze their customers' medical records.

Our platform also offers a comprehensive master patient index and record locator service which matches available medical records to the appropriate person enabling insurers to improve operational efficiency, policyholder engagement, and customer satisfaction. Access to this data will also enhance their ability to create more informed risk assessments and streamline their underwriting workflows.

Our entrance to the space will also benefit consumers by allowing them to leverage their existing medical records and enjoy a simplified application process compared to what they've experienced in the past. The need to acquire their own medical records or have blood work done will be minimized by insurers having authorized access to up to date and actionable clinical health records. 

Health Gorilla has gone through rigorous security certifications from government agencies and leading healthcare organizations and is SOC-2 Type 2 compliant, HIPAA-compliant, and independently audited on a routine basis. Before retrieving any medical records, each applicant must provide consent and validate their identity, ensuring that complete and accurate data is retrieved before being integrated into consumer portals, mobile apps, or underwriting workflows. 

Our market entrance includes attending the 2021 Insurtech Connect conference at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas October 4 - October 6. We will be located at booth 1111 and showcasing their FHIR-based data platform.

Stacy Gill, our VP of Life Insurance Markets, will participate on the panel, Building a Healthy Relationship With Modern Consumer: Deliver Value & Evolve With Digital Engagement, on Tuesday, October 5 from 3:55 pm - 4:30 pm part of Track 6. Stacy will be joined by Jane Wang, CEO, Optimity; Heather Majewski, Head of Life & Health Solutions Americas, Swiss Re; Rohit Mull, VP & CMO, Thrivent; and Paul Rivard, SVP, Chief Risk & Experience Officer, EMC National Life Company.
