Wired Insider Delivering a health kick to health care

AXA PPP Health Tech & You shares the event's mission to highlight the best in tech, but in the healthcare sector, making our partnership a natural one. After a highly successful inaugural year, the AXA PPP Health Tech & You initiative is back. The project is a joint initiative led by AXA PPP healthcare, with think tank 2020health and the Design Museum.

It aims to guide and grow the conversation about health tech, empowering people everywhere to use technology to lead healthier lives and be more in control of their health and wellbeing.

"The main part of AXA PPP healthcare's business is private medical insurance. We're really good at covering the cost for treatments and health-associated bills, but over the last five years, we've moved beyond that into providing better support and
health-related services to our members,"
says James Freeston, marketing director of AXA PPP healthcare.

"That transition from being a payer of bills into a provider of health and well-being support is really what led us into identifying that personal health technology is growing -- not just fitness tracker-levels of technology but much broader than that. And we wanted to be involved in it for the benefit of our members."
