Interview with Zurich

The upcoming Health Revolution Congress on May 16th is the largest European Summit in Digital Health, where global startups & stakeholders join forces in Barcelona. The event, organized by Barcelona Health Hub and powered by Fundació Privada de l’Hospital de la Sant Creu i Sant Pau, will take place against the stunning backdrop of the Recinto Modernista. Here you’ll dive into the latest tech, pioneering innovations and of course lots of networking opportunities.

One of the companies you can meet at the Health Revolution Congress is Zurich. They are a leading multi-line insurer serving people and businesses in more than 200 countries and territories and has about 60,000 employees. Founded more than 150 years ago, Zurich is transforming insurance. In addition to providing insurance protection, Zurich is increasingly offering prevention services such as those that promote wellbeing and enhance climate resilience.

Today you’ll meet Stefano de Liguoro, Head of Partnership Business at Zurich, who will share with us more about their expectations for the Health Revolution Congress.

Stefano, we’re looking forward to seeing you at the Health Revolution Congress. Can you please introduce yourself and tell us about Zurich?

Hi, I’m Stefano De Liguoro, Head of Partnership Business at Zurich Spain. With 1,900 employees and 1.5 million customers, Zurich has been a cornerstone of insurance in Spain for nearly 150 years. We insure 89% of IBEZ companies. Since 2007, I’ve been driving transformation initiatives, using new technologies to provide innovative solutions for our customers.

Can you elaborate about what’s new at Zurich these days?

Zurich remains a top employer, securing this status for the 2nd year and holding an EDGE certification for gender equity. We’re committed to environmental sustainability and youth mental health. Our dedication extends to promoting holistic health, evidenced by our sponsorship of Spain’s top marathons. Today, we present our new Health & Wellbeing proposition, focused on enhancing our customers’ quality of life through innovative eHealth services and proactive health insurance.

Could you provide an example of one of your successful collaborations in digital health? And what do you think that the key to success was?

We have created the first health insurance ecosystem focused on patient well-being. Thanks to the collaboration with community eHealth service providers like Senniors, and the experience of DKV, we have created a health ecosystem with very advanced technology. It allows patients to have their own personal doctor, schedule appointments with specialists, and have their medical history centralized, and all of this with specific services customized by communities. With our solution the client has the ability to take care of their health in a personalized and preventive way.

The key to the success of this collaboration has been the alignment of objectives between the different companies, improving patient care and making medical care more accessible.

Lot’s of new developments are happening every day. How do you see the future of digital health?

Society is every day more digital, and each generation has technology more integrated into their habits. A digital approach can give both proximity and human touch, but also prevention. Maybe the most innovative part is precisely the latest. Thanks to the new advanced technology this is every day more possible.

Barcelona Health Hub is thrilled to have you at this largest European congress in digital health. Why did you decide to join the Health Revolution Congress?

The Health Revolution Congress is the largest European Health summit and it’s an excellent opportunity to share ideas about the latest trends and innovations in the field of health. This congress is full of health experts and leaders, providing a forum to discuss and explore how we can improve medical care and well-being. I believe this event can provide valuable insights and connections that will positively contribute to our clients.

What can we expect of Zurich at the Health Revolution Congress?

From Zurich, we want to present our latest solutions and advances in the field of digital health. We want to share innovative ideas on how technology can improve medical care and the well-being of our customers. From Zurich, we want to convey our commitment to innovation and the continuous improvement of health.
