About ingenie

ingenie is a young driver insurance brand that rewards good driving without discounts. Using a black box fitted out of sight in the driver’s car, ingenie builds up a picture of their driving style and sends feedback to help them improve. The driver then gets discounts each quarter based on how they’ve been doing – up to 21% off over the year.

ingenie Business recognises that insurers are demanding new ways to address the challenges of high claims frequency, low customer engagement and disappointing loss ratios. ingenie Business sees beyond the technology to deliver a transformational impact on road safety, customer engagement and loss ratios to its insurance partners

ingenie has won numerous tech, insurance and road safety awards for its approach, including the Prince Michael International Road Safety Award.

 

The ingenie system

ingenie fits a black box in the driver’s car, then uses a suite of 200+ proprietary algorithms to build up a picture of their individual driving style.

The driver gets a score out of 100 through the ingenie app, along with regular feedback to help them improve. Poor driving triggers more serious messages to the driver, and ingenie’s Driver Behaviour Unit may get in touch to give them extra help. Good driving is rewarded with quarterly discounts, worth up to 21% over the year.

The ingenie approach means customers save an average of £400 when taking out a policy, with 7 out of 10 receiving further discounts through safe driving. Average savings upon renewal are around £500 and 90% earn their first year’s No Claims Discount.

InnoCare CEO Heather Shantora highlights need for healthcare technology on CTV

Heather Shantora, CEO of InnoCare joins the CTV Halifax Morning Live team to discuss a recent survey that finds Canadians want more technology in the delivery of their healthcare. Noting that wait times for specialists in Canada’s Atlantic provinces is between 31 and 35-weeks, Shantora notes that these wait times could be reduced with the appropriate application of available healthcare technologies, such as EMRs like InnoCare’s Charting+.

Discussing the results of the Research & Incite survey, Shantora posits that Canadians want the type of technology they already experience in other sectors like banking. Highlighting that banking information is just as sensitive and private as health information, Shantora says it is possible to use available technology to meet patient demands. 52% of Atlantic Canadians want access to their medical records, better access to care, more information, and sharing of information between practitioners.

InnoCare Engage Release

InnoCare Launches Engage: A Fully Automated & Personalised Email Marketing Tool for Clinicians

InnoCare has released Engage, an automated and personalised email marketing system strategically designed to increase clinic revenue. Engage helps clinicians maintain relationships with their patients by recommending appropriate health care products, cross referring them to clinic services, reaching out when a patient self-discharges to encourage them to complete their treatment plan and attend future appointments.

Integrated with InnoCare Charting+, ‘trigger-based’ emails are sent at specific intervals during the patient’s treatment journey. Unlike traditional email platforms that require spreadsheet uploads and email development, Engage pulls data automatically from Charting+, alleviating the challenges and trepidation clinicians and their staff have with managing email marketing campaigns. Engage does all the heavy lifting, helping busy practitioners stay in-touch with their patients through meaningful and relevant content.

Engage emails are sent after specific events such as missed appointments. “We know that patient “fall-off” is a critical issue for clinics and patients alike,” InnoCare CEO, Heather Shantora, explains. “With Engage, practitioners will have peace of mind knowing that the program will automatically reach out if a patient has missed an appointment with a friendly reminder encouraging them to complete their treatment plan.”  The automated emails are based on recommendations the clinician made during appointments and documented within Charting+. Following the appointment, a patient receives a follow-up email that may be about a recommended health care product, contain an exercise guide, or cross refers a clinic service that supports the patient’s recovery goals.

Engage is another innovative product that further differentiates InnoCare as a health care technology leader focused on developing tools and services that improve clinic efficiency, grow practices, and improve clinical outcomes. In addition, all communications sent through Engage meet Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL) requirements and contain relevant, personalised content that aligns with the patient’s unique treatment plan.

Heather Shantora at Accelerate Summit 2017

InnoCare CEO Heather Shantora reveals launch of new feature at Accelerate Summit

Heather Shantora was the keynote speaker at the Clinic Accelerate Business Summit in Toronto, Ontario earlier this month. The sold-out event was the first of its kind in Canada bringing together industry experts and practicing rehabilitation professionals focused on business growth, process improvements and identifying efficiencies.

Shantora spoke to clinic owners from across Canada about the role of technology in improving patient care and optimising clinic operations. Speaking with her significant experience in the allied healthcare sector, Shantora shared examples of operational successes achieved at the helm of pt Health with the implementation of InnoCare Software.

InnoCare Software has provided 360-degree visibility on clinic operations that has led to actionable data in making intelligent business decisions. One such action is improving patient visit averages (PVA) with the development of InnoCare Engage, an automated email communication tool integrated with Charting+.  Shantora explained how through Engage, patients receive trigger based and personalised emails at specific time intervals during the patient’s treatment journey. Engage not only helps clinicians maintain relationships to prevent patient “fall-off” but the tool can also recommend products and cross refer clinic services to improve clinic revenue.

InnoCare will be launching Engage in the next few weeks. “InnoCare Engage will simplify patient communication, relationship management and grow clinic revenue”, explained Shantora, “Busy clinicians will have peace of mind with the click of a button”.
