E.Design Insurance and Eisai Enter Into Business Alliance
Aiming to Promote Safe Driving and Extend Driving Life in an Aging Society Under the Theme of "Improving Brain Health (Brain Performance) For Safe Driving"
TOKYO, Jun 28, 2022 - (JCN Newswire) - E.design Insurance Co., Ltd., a direct non- life insurance company of the Tokio Marine Group, and Eisai Co., Ltd. announced today that both companies have entered into a business alliance agreement aiming to realize a society where people can safely enjoy driving for a longer period of their lives in anticipation of the advent of super-aging society, under the theme of "Improving Brain Health (brain performance) for Safe Driving." EDSP, as an Insurtech (a term coined by combining insurance and technology) company which promotes "co-creation of a world without accidents" with customers and other companies or local governments, and Eisai, which aims to build a dementia ecosystem through coexisting with various industries and organizations to remove the diverse anxieties of each individual, both will take this business alliance as an opportunity to promote safe driving and extend driving life, thereby contributing to solving the issues associated with an aging society.
The initiatives planned under the alliance are as follows.
1. Providing an opportunity to check brain health
The privilege of using "NouKNOW", the digital tool for self-assessment of brain health distributed by Eisai, will be offered to customers who have purchased the "&e", automobile insurance of EDSP (Scheduled for July 2022). With "NouKNOW", brain health is measured quantitatively through a simple card test using smartphone or other devices, evaluating psychomotor function, attention, learning and memory, and working memory. When driving a car, the human brain processes a variety of information, such as road conditions, traffic volume, or the route to a destination, and makes instantaneous judgements repeatedly. Introducing "NouKNOW" is intended to promote safe driving and encourage people to become more aware of their brain health on a daily basis, which is thought to contribute to human judgment while driving.
2. Jointly developing solutions for maintaining and improving brain health
EDSP and Eisai will jointly develop solutions that help maintain and improve brain health, by leveraging Eisai's experience and expertise, to enable customers to drive safely for a longer period of time in their lives. Both companies aim to create new solutions, including the development of training contents utilizing data on the characteristics of daily driving behavior and data on brain functions, and the development of a service, targeting customers whose brain health has declined or whose risky behavior has increased, to compile an integrated report on their brain performance and safe driving capability by utilizing the driving score provided by "&e" and the "NouKNOW" score, that allows customers to share the results not only with themselves but also with their families.
The "&e", co-creation-type auto insurance, provides benefits such as support services for safe driving tailored to each customer by linking IoT sensors and smartphones, in order to reduce the number of customers involved in accidents by even one.

"NouKNOW" (non-medical equipment) is a self-checking tool of brain health (brain performance) developed by Eisai based on the algorithm created by Cogstate, Ltd. (Headquarters: Australia) for which Eisai holds the rights for exclusive development and commercialization worldwide. It is not a tool for the prevention and diagnosis of diseases, but therefore for the purpose of self-checking brain performance in order to raise health awareness. This digital tool allows users to self-assess independently evaluating psychomotor function, attention, learning and memory, and working memory in a short time frame (approx.15 minutes) through a simple card test using smartphone or other devices.
