Covid-19 pandemic has fundamentally affected the development of many online and offline businesses and healthcare has become an area of massive interest. Experts believe that embedded finance platforms for healthcare in India are much needed given that out of pocket expense is very high and insurance penetration is among the lowest in the world. According to experts, Indian healthcare expense is estimated to be around $120 billion per annum and is growing at the rate of 15 % every year. The government has already shown its support encouraging startups to create leading-edge solutions in order to provide people with affordable high-quality medical services.
Embedded finance platforms in India are expected to be one of the largest contributors to retail payments in the country due to tremendous usage and high frequency. Today the experts from the first healthcare finance solutions in India SaveIN will share their experience of cooperation with JuicyScore, one of the leading risk management and anti-fraud solutions provider.
How embedded finance solutions work?
Embedded finance healthtech solutions allow customers to make avail healthcare products and services at clinics and pay for the same in simple zero/low cost EMIs. Basically, the customer can split the cost of treatment or service , while embedded finance player pays the healthcare partner upfront, net of commission/fee/subvention, on behalf of the customer who is borrowing money for availing such service. The customer, in turn shall return the full amount to the embedded finance company in the prescribed time period
In case of SaveIN , It caters to healthcare needs by offering financing and credit options to patients at zero-cost equated monthly instalments (EMIs) across its network of healthcare providers. The fintech startup is creating a network of healthcare providers to offer embedded finance and pay-later options at merchants and clinics in healthcare business across the country and plays a very important function of developing an innovative model of online lending in healthcare.
Cooperation with JuicyScore
The companies launched a pilot project in the first quarter of 2022. The robust and stable device ID and JuicyScore data vector informativeness has significantly strengthened the company's risk technology stack and has already proven to be effective in identifying a number of aspects related to fraud risk prevention and score models significant improvement.
The scoring model was developed on the basis of issued loan applications, which may serve as an illustration how JuicyScore data can be used to develop new predictors and score models based on data received from the client.
SaveIN intends to use JuicyScore alternate data to better understand and control fraud and credit risk at very early stage of the customer journey. The variables provided by JuicyScore will help SaveIN to filter out high risk applications in the funnel.
During the pilot, device behaviour markers were widely used - an aggregated index from JuicyScore standard output data vector, which includes risk markers, combination of user behaviour and device markers characteristics. For example, a combination of secondary risk markers and device anomalies, where each anomaly individually may indicate a possible risk that should be taken into account when verifying a borrower, and their combination, if triggered simultaneously, which highlights a high-risk area.
In addition, other IDX variables, created with deep machine learning algorithms were widely used. For example, a variable that is a combination of 50+ rare events, which show high probability of fraud through technical manipulation of the device. This variable includes the whole variety of device randomization tools, techniques of interference into "digital fingerprint" as well as determines the most dangerous markers of user high risk behaviour and network connection markers. The variable can be used both in rules and also as a component of a fraud prevention model to identify the most dangerous customer segments. The risk level raises along with the parameter value, high values may be used as filters for automatic denial.
