THE CHALLENGE

As children we were often told many stories to help us learn and accept lessons of life, morals, and values. We were taught not to lie by The Boy Who Cried Wolf and we were taught not to trust strangers by Hansel and Gretel. Most of these fables and fairy-tales are etched into our brains and we as adults usually pride ourselves in having internalised these fundamental messages of what is deemed right and wrong. However, if we take a look back at one story in particular we will find that most adults fail to understand and apply its lessons well into adulthood if at all. The Emperor’s New Clothes is the tale of an emperor and his court who are swindled by two weavers merely because no one is willing to challenge or question anything they are being told. Long story short, the emperor ends up walking out naked because he’s so convinced that his new clothes are real. As adults most of society continues to accept the status quo without a second thought, and this is especially evident when it comes to health care. For example, we accept the new normal of “increase in premiums” for corporations, as if this concept is just a fact of life, when in reality accepting and believing in something like that is akin to the emperor just accepting that his clothes are invisible.

Here at Hyjiya we don’t want you to walk out naked, which is why we have been pioneering the efforts to challenge the current attitude that has plagued the health care and insurance eco system. We don’t believe that we have to live with the current trends, especially in this digital decade. Hyjiya has taken on the lofty goal of building a world class Digital Platform that orchestrates Health, Emergency, Wellness and Insurance (HEWI ™) for the benefit of Corporates, Employees & Insurers.
