ATLANTA, April 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Big Cloud Analytics Inc. (BCA), a leading provider of predictive analytics software focused on Internet of Things (IoT) data from wearable and other medical devices for insurers, clinical research and enterprise wellness, today announces that the wellness program "MLC On Track" (offered by MLC and supported by BCA analytics) is the recipient of the Risk Product Innovation Award by the Association of Financial Advisers (AFA) and Plan For Life (PFL). This is the second industry award for this fast-growing program, which is supported by BCA's health analytics platform.
MLC On Track leverages data captured by Basis Peak™ Fitness and Sleep Trackers by Intel® and analyzed by BCA's COVALENCE Health Analytics Platform. This provides MLC with business intelligence regarding activity levels, sleep and general wellness behaviours of MLC policyholders. As a result of meeting certain wellness targets, MLC On Track participants receive discounts on life insurance premiums.
"BCA is honored to enable the award-winning MLC On Track program with the innovation provided by our real-time health analytics platform that enriches MLC's insurance products," says J. Patrick Bewley, CEO, Big Cloud Analytics. "The continued industry recognition of MLC On Track reinforces the fact that there are now real and revolutionary ways to create wellness programs that bring value to both the consumer and the insurance company. In this case, it's the successful combination of wearable devices and predictive analytics, resulting in a wellness program that connects and empowers all parties involved."
The annual AFA and PFL awards recognize life insurance company excellence based on the products and services they provide to financial advisers and clients.
MLC On Track:
The MLC On Track wellness program leverages BCA's COVALENCE analytics platform to capture, organize and score participants' IoT data generated by the Basis Peak™ Fitness and Sleep Tracker Intel®. The participants can track this powerful data via a personalized dashboard. MLC can use the data to emphasize and encourage improved health behaviors for program participants.
When MLC On Track participants meet wellness targets within 160 days, they receive a 5 percent discount on premiums. Customers have two opportunities to do this, which means that they can receive up to 10 percent off premiums for the life of their policy.
"The program has been a game-changer for our industry, and we are honored to accept an award that highlights the initiative as forward-thinking and customer-centric," says Fiona Guscott, Chief Underwriter at MLC.
