League and Loblaw bring next-generation digital health platform, PC Health, to customers
Together the two industry-leading companies will transform how customers access and navigate healthcare
CHICAGO, Oct. 15, 2020 /CNW/ - League Inc., North America's leading enterprise health operating system (health OS), today announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership with Loblaws Inc. as part of its Powered by League program. The two organizations have come together to develop the PC Health app, a new personalized digital health app designed to improve how Canadians access and navigate healthcare. The partnership will combine the power of League's cloud-based health platform and proven engagement model and Loblaw's robust healthcare network, customer reach, and world-class PC Optimum™ loyalty program.
Initially available for residents in Atlantic Canada, the PC Health app will be expanded nationally over the coming months. Features and functionality will also continue to be added to the app experience to include services such as virtual physician care and digital pharmacy.
The healthcare system is a complex web of information, providers, employer-sponsored programs, and insurers. The new partnership aims to address these issues and provide a new personalized "front door" to healthcare—one place for Canadians to manage their health and get support.
"Our company's purpos is to help Canadians live life well, and now more than ever, connected healthcare is of significant strategic importance to our business," says Jeff Leger, President, Shoppers Drug Mart. "This partnership marries our brick-and-mortar offering and experience in the healthcare space with League's proven technology and digital health expertise, enabling us to bring the next generation of digital health services to market on an accelerated timeline."
League's data-driven and cloud-based platform is designed to provide a seamless healthcare experience. Until now, this platform was only available to the public through their employers. The five-year-old health-tech powerhouse has hundreds of customers across North America including Unilever, Shopify, Lush, and Uber. With enhanced health data analytics capabilities, virtual care offerings, evidence-based health programming and built-in e-commerce, the platform offers a single point to access and navigate healthcare resources and support.
"Through our Platform as a Service (PaaS) offering, Powered by League, leading pharmacies, retailers, health systems and financial institutions can leverage our technology infrastructure to accelerate their digital transformation," says Mike Serbinis, Founder and CEO of League. "We are proud to have an innovative organization like Loblaw as our first Powered By League partner and expect to share more over the coming months."
