The platform includes a mobile-first communications channel for employers, health concierge services that provide employees with access to health professionals and to virtual preliminary screening for the coronavirus. It also provides a centralized access point for information on the pandemic and relevant resources.

Further, the platform provides employees with a personalized health profile that gives them data-driven recommendations and nudges regarding healthy behaviour, as well as a digital wallet that holds employee assistance program information and other programs that employers may be providing, such as health-care spending account administration, work-from-home office setup funding and family supports.
