Southern Insurance Underwriters and Life2 Form Partnership

Artificial Intelligence To Power New Insurtech Offerings

Atlanta, GA: January 25, 2018 – Southern Insurance Underwriters (SIU), a certified
Managing General Agency and Life2, Inc., an innovator in artificial intelligence,
machine learning and clinical data services announced a partnership to bring cutting
edge innovation to the insurance market. The partnership’s initial effort will be a hosted
service leveraging Life2’s Artificial Intelligence Engine to benefit health systems in the
United States.

Wesley C. Duesenberg, Jr., Chief Executive Officer at SIU, commented: “For over 50
years, SIU has underwritten a broad scope of risks ranging from the simplest property
risks to highly sophisticated self insured programs. Throughout our history, innovative
technology has always been a hallmark and Life2’s artificial intelligence fits perfectly
with SIU’s progressive track record. Our first initiative is to help hospitals and health
systems leverage their investments in insurance captives. While our initial focus will be
in the United States market, the international insurance market will be an exciting and
logical progression. The SIU team is confident and excited about what this partnership
can deliver.”

Life2’s Artificial Intelligence Engine provides hospitals empirical evidence of which
clinical and procedural actions are most effective. It utilizes artificial intelligence, deep
machine learning, cognitive augmentation and expert guidance to deliver real time
patient based risk stratification, causality analysis and empirical intervention selection.
An Evidence Engine powers an automated Machine Learning Feedback Loop that
compiles the outcomes and measures the effectiveness of each action. This results in
real time “course correction”, helping hospitals and clinicians optimize patient outcomes
as well as quality and financial performance while reducing risk.

Sam Wilkes, Founder and Chairman of Life2 stated: “We are excited about our
partnership with SIU. Their deep understanding of risk underwriting and risk
management combined with our technology will prove lucrative for health systems and
especially those that own insurance captives. The captive allows a health system to
place more self-insured risk in the captive in order to achieve a much greater operating
profit. Our Artificial Intelligence Engine allows health systems to boldly manage and
mitigate risks associated with malpractice, value based contracts, Accountable Care
Organizations and Post Acute Discharge Partnerships.”
