Insurance for Everyone

The Bamboo Ecosystem aims to deliver Insurance for Everyone through establishing a trusted and sustainable Ecosystem for ASEAN wellness for empowering better holistic living. The Bamboo Wellness Ecosystem focuses on:

Enabling alternative and affordable insurance accessibility mechanisms.

Improving data accessibility, transparency and reliability using blockchain-based immutable databases. This will ensure that local insurers are able to create highly flexible and affordable insurance policies based on the high quality data.

Leveraging Archipelago’s established operational expertise as the vehicle for facilitating implementations of proposed technologies so that the broader Ecosystem including local insurers, user communities, healthcare providers, specialist workers, product and service providers plus all parties involved in the food supply chain will stand to benefit.

Removing legacy structures which have been roadblocks to delivery of smart health care and replacing them with efficient, up-to-date technological solutions which utilize cutting-edge technologies including blockchain and IoT. 

Bamboo is a platform that leverages a business/vendor partner model to drive wellness through data analytics. The platform will benefit everyone including hospitals, insurers, and consumers.

The platform allows the Bamboo Model 1.0 to be activated for the insured user under Bamboo Insurers. The Ecosystem shows constant engagement between insurer and policy holder which benefits for both parties through the interchange of insights for the betterment of the community. Ultimately, this will narrow the health protection gap and increase protection coverage across the region.

Insurance can play a key role in closing the protection gap by providing financial resources at times of unexpected medical expenses and building a baseline of resilience.

The BAMBOO platform offers advantages such as eliminating falsehoods, managing the rising cost of healthcare, getting rid of unethical food and drink labels, preventing diseases, and empowering consumers to regain the control of their health. One of the elements BAMBOO focuses on is the early diagnosis and the effective treatment of chronic diseases such as diabetes and hypertension. Early diagnosis gets rid of the higher cost of treatment and diagnosis that comes with identifying disease in its late stages.
