Avvy Health, the first company in Canada to use an app to bring healthcare services to people at home or work, is pleased to welcome Creaform to the Avvy Employer Program.
Creaform develops, manufactures and sells portable and automated 3D measurement technologies and specializes in engineering services. Through the partnership, Creaform employees in Montreal and Quebec City can now book routine healthcare services for themselves or on behalf of a loved one at a discounted rate.
“Being the first in Quebec City to offer this type of service for their employees demonstrates that Creaform understands the benefits of reducing healthcare costs, increasing productivity and employee engagement.,” says Oren Sebag, CEO of Avvy Health and a registered nurse. “Through the Avvy Employer Program, users with a corporate account can easily access convenient healthcare at home, either for themselves or on behalf of a loved one. It’s also a great complement to their existing telemedicine options.”
Avvy is the first Canadian health app to match patients with qualified practitioners who will drive to their residence to provide a range of services. The service, available for both iPhone and Android users, launched on the Island of Montreal in February 2022 and has expanded rapidly to include Montreal’s surrounding areas as well as Quebec City.
Corporate account users enjoy a group discount when using the app for selected services.
The Employer Program gives companies a new way to:
- Help employees manage their health needs while remaining productive (e.g., avoiding time away for clinic waits)
- Reduce costs and absenteeism
- Attract top talent
- Expand virtual offerings to include in-person health services (e.g., a follow-up blood test)
All Avvy services are included with the platform, including:
“Whether you have 10 or 10,000 employees, Avvy makes it simpler and more convenient to access healthcare services when and where you need it,” says Sebag. “It’s the next evolution for Employee Assistance Programs.”
