The Challenge

With newer and younger Health Insurance companies, coming in with an online-first approach to customer support, it was extremely important to build a digital experience that allowed their customers to transact seamlessly. Through several Stakeholder workshops driven by Blue Logic, and the core team at OIC, several challenges were identified that their existing customers faced, and these helped drive the strategy and direction of the mobile app. Some of these included:

  • Physical Insurance card needed to be carried at all times.
  • A large number of emails and calls from customers to understand their policy coverage, network and claims submission process.
  • No access to their history of claims and the status of claims submitted.
  • Constant calls and emails to locate the nearest branch, as the company has a large number of physical offices.

The Objectives:

Post several Discovery workshops and extensive research of the Call-centre data, we identified the below features and functionality for Phase 1 of the native mobile app available on both iOS and Android:

  • Simple, yet modern design with a lot of white space, in alignment with the brand’s identity.
  • Virtual health card for quick access with the ability to download in different formats or even Add to Wallet.
  • Ability to add additional family members insured under the same policy holder.
  • Real-time centre locator allowing customers to find the nearest hospitals, clinics, pharmacies, diagnostic centres, dental or optical clinics, labs, SEHA pharmacies or even LivFit Gyms included in their policy and be able to: Get Directions, Call and enquire, Add to phone contacts.
  • Claims support including: Submission of a new claim, with the ability to upload the documents necessary, Track status of existing claims, Download or request details of claims submitted, View Claims History.
  • Branch locator to find the nearest OIC branch office across the different Emirates in the UAE.
