The solution is designed to bridge the gap between no healthcare offering at all and full healthcare provision as an employee benefit.
With six million people currently on UK National Health Services waiting lists and almost 39 million workdays lost through work-related illnesses every year, this solution aims to remove barriers to healthcare by enabling instant access to digital triage through an app. It offers employees accelerated access to mental health, musculoskeletal, virtual GP and wellbeing services, as part of one digital ecosystem of online portals and conversational AI tools such as chatbots, that provide immediate support and targeted therapy in a much more streamlined process. Once they have received their diagnosis, members can self-manage their own recovery with appropriate advice or be integrated into the NHS for long-term treatment if necessary.
Wellbeing therapy and physiotherapy on offer to employees
Employers can choose from two levels of service, Healix ConneX Triage and Healix ConneX Care, to best fit their budget while ensuring there’s no compromise on the level of care for staff. With Healix ConneX Care, employers can add emotional wellbeing therapy and physiotherapy sessions on top of the standard Triage package.
Healix ConneX is a whole workforce solution available to all businesses whether they are currently part of a Healix healthcare trust or not. As a subscription-based service, it can be rolled out quickly and at scale to help employers keep their workforce happy and productive, in turn attracting new talent and potentially improving staff retention.
Ian Talbot, CEO at Healix, comments: “The healthcare sector has been under intense pressure as a result of the pandemic. We were in a position to help tackle this problem and wanted to provide a solution that allowed employees to deal with any issues head on, cutting through the waiting times for any initial consultations and diagnoses and speeding up their ability to access the right support. We’re excited to see our clients benefit from the service, and the positive impact we hope it will have on the health, happiness and productivity of their organisation as a whole.”
