Elma: digital-native health insurance for the new generation
Elma is a digital native health insurance company on a mission to make healthcare accessible anywhere, at any time and for everyone. Elma combines the best remote primary care with mobile technology that helps members remain healthy. This provides two main benefits: a personalized care service which helps keep premiums down, and the best preventive care platform that helps members take the real win: better health. And the best part: everything starts and finishes in the Elma app.
The Spanish startup not only provides insurance coverage, but they also provide tools and actual care developed and served by their own team. This allows them to serve their members in a unique way which improves healthcare quality and outcomes. Their remote primary care service has been available for a year with over 5.000 paying customers and 20 companies in Spain. In July Elma is releasing its first full stack insurance product to the market which will allow them to take Elma to the next stage.
Elma focuses on building engagement with their members because they believe that delivering more and better care will drive better healthcare outcomes, while making their business more profitable. Incumbent insurers’ business model is based in having the least number of touchpoints with their members as possible. They won a prize as “Mejor App Nativa” (Best Native App) in Eawards.
