Insurers should be interested in the moves towards more openness around government data, aligning themselves with NGOs, open government activists, and their customers. There is a great deal to be gained if insurers could access more data:
- An accurate history of prescriptions and tests for applying customers
- Copies of all consultants notes for applying customers
- Big data insights into disability and treatments
I am sure much more could be found and learned if there was more data available. I know of only one consultant and one insurer that is actively working in this area - actually meeting with officials and seeking to change their views on access. There should be more.
