    Leveraging smarter technology
Advancements in technology will continue to impact and improve how people communicate, stay connected and use data to change behaviors and improve results.

 5 Prescriptive analytics – Integrating and sharing information across multiple data sets within claims management can produce meaningful insights to help guide clinical intervention efforts, enhance patient advocacy and improve overall outcomes.
 6 Autonomous technology – Interest in unmanned aerial vehicles is growing and self-driving cars are on the horizon. The debate over the use of drones – from monitoring civil unrest to surveying areas devastated by disaster – continues as government restrictions ease; and emerging technologies like driverless cars will prompt discussions about liability and related issues for risk managers.
 7

Connected health – The increasing number of virtual healthcare options such as mHealth, telehealth and wearable monitoring devices can improve access to care for all patients particularly those living in remote areas.

 8 Cutting-edge technology – Artificial intelligence, 3D printers, nanotechnology, telematics and the Internet of Things will contribute to ongoing advancements and innovations in many industries.
