AG join forces to innovate in the Swiss health insurance ecosystem


Sumex, a fully-owned subsidiary of the ELCA Group, the Swiss leader in Engineering, Development and Business Solutions, and Secon, the process and data specialist for core insurance business, announce the creation of a strategic partnership in which Sumex is taking a controlling stake in Secon to create the leading technology solution provider in Switzerland for the health insurance market.

With the continued evolution of the health insurance sector in terms of expectations, complexity and costs and the advent of new technology, significant investments have been carried out by technology providers to offer forward-looking solutions. Bringing top of the line solutions to insurance companies that consider and address the evolving expectations of the customers and provide significant simplification, efficiency, and improvement of the user-experience, while reducing costs, is a challenge that requires strong, specific competences and a mid- to long-term strategic perspective.


By joining forces, Sumex and Secon will address the vision the two companies share, to improve the efficiency of the swiss healthcare system through highly automated and fully digital end-to-end processes. "The two companies complement each other perfectly and the combination of the two solutions opens up new strategic opportunities."  says Felix Musterle, General Manager Sumex. The engineering DNA of the two Swiss based companies, combined with their broad expertise, results in a comprehensive solutions that focuses on the following goals:

  • Lower transaction costs through a high degree of automation and maximum effectiveness in claims control
  • Separation of complex tasks from standardized activities allowing an optimal use of specialized resources
  • Modular and open architecture
  • A Swiss solution focused on the needs of Swiss insurance companies
  • Extended knowhow and expertise for innovation and a functional coverage which enables Swiss insurance companies to take the next step in their digitization strategy

The new entity will also benefit from the broad operational expertise of Secon and the extensive and deep competences of the ELCA Group in terms of Cloud Services & Management, Cybersecurity, Data Management and engineering capabilities. Today several components of the Sumex Solution are already being operated at ELCA Cloud Services in a fully sovereign Swiss Cloud, and both companies also operate their core system for various customers in its own cloud environment or on premise within the health insurance’s infrastructure. Through the strategic partnership, the objective is to extend the options by which health insurance companies will be managing their business-critical systems today and tomorrow.
