It’s working with Akira Health, which will give customers access to medical consultations with clinicians, anytime and anywhere
Manulife customers will soon be able to access on-demand, virtual medical consultations with clinicians, anytime and anywhere.
It’s due to a partnership between Manulife and Akira Health, which was announced on Thursday.
Akira will be offered to Manulife customers through its new Healthcare Online platform, which will add virtual care to their benefit plans.
The two companies say they’re working to decrease absenteeism by delivering a healthcare solution that provides employees with 24/7 access to virtual health care providers who can resolve more than half the issues that would typically take them to a doctor’s office.
A Conference Board of Canada report says on average, Canadians miss nine days of work every year due to health-related issues.
”Manulife is on a mission to make lives well and decisions easier for Canadians,” Donna Carbell, Head of Group Benefits for Manulife Canada said in a release. ”Akira – the first provider in our Healthcare Online solution – provides primary care, which we see as a foundational element of Manulife’s virtual offering.”
”This new partnership is an incredible opportunity for us to improve Canadians’ access to personalized healthcare in a collaborative way that works well for Manulife and their clients,” added John Mozas, co-founder of Akira.
Akira says its essential consideration clinicians have effectively finished a huge number of virtual restorative conferences on the Akira application utilizing secure and video talk.
Manulife has workplaces in both Kitchener and Waterloo.
