At Omdena, we are at the forefront of leveraging AI technology to enhance the health insurance industry. With a global network of 20,000 developers and a track record of over 650 real-world projects, we are committed to driving meaningful change through innovative solutions. Behind those innovative solutions are localized developers who have been equipped with the necessary tools to craft localized solutions. Of course, this is only possible when using a grassroots AI approach

Our approach at Omdena is rooted in grassroots AI, where we train local tech talent and involve them in real-world challenges. Developers progress through a training regiment that focuses on foundational learning and a transition to real world projects. Once developers are trained in the latest AI techniques, they are then encouraged to take part in what are known as local chapter challenges. Although on a smaller scale, these projects allow newly-trained developers the opportunity to showcase their skills to help find solutions to the issues they face in their own localities. 

After successful participation in local chapter challenges, many of our developers move on to more sophisticated projects, including AI Innovation challenges. It is through these challenges that our developers enhance their skills further by working on challenges at a higher level. Again, once completed, a select few developers are able to showcase their learning even further by being chosen as Omdena’s elite. Through this process, we identify top talent who then collaborate on high-impact projects. This philosophy not only empowers local communities but also fosters the development of homegrown solutions to local challenges, driven by the people who understand them best.

In addition to our grassroots AI approach, we prioritize compassionate collaboration in all our endeavors. By bringing together diverse perspectives and expertise, we create compassionate AI solutions that address the needs of both insurers and policyholders alike. A typical Omdena project can include up to 50 collaborators. Each collaborator offering their own unique perspective on how to tackle challenges by bringing together ideas and varied approaches to solutions. 

Don’t just take our word for it, discover some of our recent challenges and how we used our AI expertise in the case studies below: 

Omdena Case Study 1: Fraud Detection in Insurance Claims

Fraud detection is a critical aspect of insurance operations. This operation oftentimes demands swift and accurate solutions. Teaming up with Turaco in the USA, our dedicated team of engineers and project managers embarked on a 12-week journey to tackle this challenge head-on. The result? An Optical Character Recognition Model that analyzes textual data from PDFs. This analysis tool translates documents into .txt format. From there we empower insurers to identify fraudulent claims in real-time while bolstering the integrity of insurance systems.

Omdena Case Study 2: Leveraging AI for Health Insurance Fraud Detection

In the realm of health insurance, combating fraud requires innovative approaches. Collaborating with a pioneering InsurTech company in Hong Kong, our team of AI engineers and product managers developed an AI model tailored to detect fraud patterns in health insurance claims within Saudi Arabia. 

This advanced model conducts lightning-fast eligibility checks in under 2 minutes. This enables insurers to combat fraudulent health insurance claim activities effectively. By leveraging AI technology, we redefined fraud detection, fortifying the security of health insurance systems for all stakeholders and their insurers.

As clinical data continues to proliferate, ensuring its reliability is paramount. Partnering with FlaskData in Ireland, our global team of 50 AI Engineers and 1 Project Manager led an 8-week project to address the challenges of anomaly detection for drug safety. The outcome? A cutting-edge RESTful API service for automated detection of anomalies in clinical data

Using machine learning Omdena and FlaskData empowered healthcare professionals to identify and mitigate risks proactively, safeguarding the integrity of decision-making processes related to drug safety..


At Omdena, our commitment to advancing the health insurance industry through AI-driven grassroots innovation is of paramount importance. By collaborating with industry leaders and diverse talent from around the world, we deliver solutions that redefine insurance processes, ensuring a safer and more efficient future for everyone. From real-time fraud detection to automated anomaly detection, our solutions empower insurers to navigate complex challenges with confidence and clarity with minimal effort needed.

As we continue to push the boundaries of AI technology, we invite you to join us on this journey towards a brighter, more secure future for medical insurance. Let’s leverage the power of AI to transform the way we protect and manage healthcare resources.
