NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Health Outlook Corporation, a health prediction company using modern proteomics to better predict health events and improve health outcomes, announced today that it is partnering with Applied Underwriters®, a global risk services firm, in the formation of Album Life Assurance, a managing general underwriter that will offer a suite of insurance products.
The mission of Album Life Assurance is to find innovative ways to use life science and biotechnology to enhance valuable, personalized life insurance and related products that will help families manage some of the uncertainties of life.
“This groundbreaking partnership, one of the first uses of proteomic science in the augmentation of traditional life underwriting principles, is a powerful validation of our advanced statistical and AI technologies to better predict health events and potentially improve health outcomes,” said Howard Sams, CEO of Health Outlook Corporation.
“We at Health Outlook have high aspirations for ourselves and for Album Life Assurance,” continued Sams. “If we can better predict mortality, then human quality of life could be meaningfully enhanced by protecting the moments to come with superior underwriting methods that more accurately assess the health of the individual person.”
Applied Underwriters Chairman Steve Menzies observed that the life insurance market has functioned for decades largely unchanged but is now rapidly transitioning to an online centric model: “There is a massive amount of momentum in the life insurance industry towards underwriting through the analysis of big data to help streamline costs and enable rapid, online underwriting and sales.”
Mr. Menzies concluded, “At Album, we foresee a substantial competitive advantage in using the best of proven life underwriting methods while significantly enhancing them through the application of the latest scientific technologies and advancements. Our partners at Health Outlook will leverage their state-of-the-art predictive proteomics technologies for life science/biotechnology applications; Applied will handle developing the related statistical research and data analytics. The resulting innovative products will have the potential to be very beneficial to our policyholders.”
Album Life Assurance will be headquartered in New York and expects to begin accepting applications for insurance in the third quarter of 2023. The Company plans to offer term life insurance, long-term care insurance and catastrophic health insurance. Initially, term life insurance will be offered in key US markets, and term life and catastrophic health insurance will be offered in select foreign jurisdictions.
