A world’s first in insurance, 

built in Singapore by LumenLab.

LumenLab's Vitana is the world’s first, automated insurance solution using blockchain technology to offer pregnant women financial protection for gestational diabetes. We used blockchain to improve the customer experience by providing a completely frictionless experience, free from heavy underwriting and burdensome claims. 

Launched in the MAS sandbox, our 9-month experiment showed that blockchain can be used to provide a frictionless experience to our customers in a time of need.

Why gestational diabetes matters?

Did you know one in five expecting mothers in Singapore get gestational diabetes? - according to KKH and NUH study

During the last trimester, expecting mothers with gestational diabetes need to take care of their diet so as to avoid high blood pressure for mothers and low mineral levels for their newborn.

Concept: Gestational Diabetes Cover

Vitana is a first of its kind gestational diabetes cover that gives mums in Singapore financial cover against the risk of diabetes during maternity.

We launched Vitana as a 9-month experiment in the MAS sandobox. At the end of the experiment in March 2019 we had helped many Singapore mothers deal with GDM.

We want to change the insurance industry, so we use the latest technology for a whole new proactive approach. Our concept starts with getting rid of the claims form.
