Ebix, Inc. Extends Its Relationship with Swiss Re to Enhance the Next Generation Life Guide Manual for Underwriters
Atlanta, GA – April 28, 2014 – Ebix, Inc. (NASDAQ: EBIX), a leading international supplier of On-Demand software and E-commerce services to the insurance and healthcare industries, today announced that the Company’s A.D.A.M. Health Content Division has extended its relationship with Swiss Re America Holding Corporation to both enhance Swiss Re’s renowned evidence-based online manual "Life Guide" and expand Swiss Re's already extensive underwriting training capabilities with a new supplementary resource called an online "Medical Education and Reference Library".
Life Guide is the gold standard for Life and Health underwriters and helps thousands of underwriters with their decision-making processes and overall training and education. The next generation of Life Guide and the new Medical Education and Reference Library will be supported by A.D.A.M’s Comprehensive Consumer Health Information, Medical Illustrations & Animations. The addition of over 20 award-winning on-demand Learning Courses will further enhance Swiss Re's already robust eLearning modules for underwriting training.
Ebix Vice President Soula Chronopoulos said, “We are excited about this initiative. Our A.D.A.M. product in the form of illustrations, animations, and health content supplementing Swiss Re’s Life Guide and the new Library resource, will allow underwriters access to new robust training material to help them ultimately underwrite risks more accurately and efficiently.”
Swiss Re Chief Underwriter Bill Moore said, "This important evolution of Swiss Re's Life Guide and eLearning allows us to better partner with our clients to serve their underwriting needs. A.D.A.M allows Swiss Re to offer even more powerful training materials to supplement and enrich Life Guide – the industry's leading underwriting manual."
Swiss Re will showcase the new A.D.A.M. supplemented Medical Education and Reference Library along with Life Guide updates at the 13th Annual Association of Home Office Underwriters (AHOU) Annual Conference May 4-7, 2014 at the JW Marriott in Indianapolis at booth #s 317-21 and #s 416-20.
