About the Lecture
The health insurance market in Switzerland, but also internationally, is changing rapidly. In this talk, Matthias explains the challenges that health insurers face today and how chatbots provide an opportunity for health insurers to thrive in this difficult market. He will elaborate on the advantages of chatbots from the perspective of a health insurer and explain how CSS is trying to leverage chatbot technology to their advantage. Specifically, the talk will highlight recent examples that illustrate how insurers can use chatbots to create a superior customer experience and build new business models outside of the insurance market. Matthias will also highlight challenges and currently unanswered questions that need to be addressed to scale chatbot technology in the healthcare industry.
