MCI Onehealth Technologies (DRDR) is now a Canadian distributor for Virgin Pulse.

The company and Virgin are partnering to provide a platform for employee health and well-being to Canadian businesses. The platform will be offered by MCI’s Corporate Health Solutions division as MCI Wellness Connect.

Dr. Alexander Dobranowski, CEO of MCI says:

“Virgin Pulse is the gold standard of health and wellbeing platforms, and we’re excited to offer an MCI-branded solution to smaller Canadian employers that, until now, have not been able to access this premium level of wellness support for their growing business. Virgin Pulse is aligned with MCI’s vision of making care more accessible, more preventative, more personalized, and more affordable.”

MCI Wellness Connect will serve as “a digital front door,” connecting employees with resources needed to help create sustainable healthy habits.

The platform will provide Canadian businesses access to all the features of the Virgin Pulse platform that normally benefit enterprise-size companies. The platform delivers engagement and meaningful health outcomes, leveraging a proprietary combination of behaviour science, gamification, and incentives that motivate employees to create healthy, lasting habits. The Virgin Pulse platform has 14 million members globally and is growing significantly in the Canadian market.

Virgin Pulse VP and GM, Laura Walmsley, says:

“Research shows that companies with healthy and engaged employees experience lower workplace stress, increased productivity and profitability, and higher employee engagement and retention. Creating a culture of health is becoming a priority for both businesses and their people. Our partnership with MCI extends the positive impact of Virgin Pulse to even more employees in Canada – changing more lives for good.”

MCI Wellness Connect is an AI-driven personalization. It provides daily health and well-being content, habit tracking, an expansive challenge library, and on-demand live coaching with microlearning content. It ensures ongoing employee engagement in their pursuit and practice of total well-being.

Genevieve Sadak, Vice President of MCI Corporate Health Solutions, says:

“MCI Corporate Health Solutions is already widely recognized for its clinical excellence and experience in the occupational health and disability management sectors. With this Virgin Pulse partnership, we will leapfrog into a position of strength in corporate wellness. Canadians often do not have the opportunity to avail themselves of comprehensive education and strategies to improve their health and make lifestyle changes. We strive to provide a significant resource through our employer-based health and wellness programming to address this need and to make a real, quantifiable, and sustained difference in the lives of Canadians in our client programs.”

As a potential solution to many of the employee-relevant challenges in today’s corporate world, MCI Wellness Connect is scalable and flexible. The website interface – also available as a mobile app – integrates an organization’s health and well-being offerings into one place. The ecosystem of services that are built into the MCI Wellness Connect platform will also provide linked access to an ecosystem of related MCI health services.

MCI Onehealth Technologies (DRDR) is a healthcare technology company focused on advanced technologies that increase access, improve quality, and reduce healthcare costs.

MCI Onehealth Technologies (DRDR) is trading at C$0.65 as of 1:23 pm ET.
