We’re proud to announce a partnership between Alberta Blue Cross® and Alberta Innovates aimed at improving individual health and wellbeing by piloting personalized digital health care solutions with a portion of our customers.
There are nearly 500,000 health-related digital tools available, but it can be an overwhelming task to search for one that fits individual needs. This partnership enables organizations offering our employer-sponsored benefit plans to find, deploy and implement digital health solutions for mental health and chronic disease management, two of the largest contributors to the rising cost of benefit plans.
Successful digital health solutions will be piloted for 18 to 24 months. During this time, we will identify the biggest health concerns for our customers with a focus on chronic disease management, diabetes and mental health. Alberta Innovates will use these findings to source digital health innovators and technology vendors.
These new and emerging digital health solutions will be evaluated, adopted and ultimately offered to individuals through Alberta Blue Cross® employer-sponsored benefit plans.
