The Great-West Life Assurance Co. is now offering Dialogue’s virtual health-care services to employers in all Canadian provinces and the Yukon, as well as its own 10,000 employees.

“Making innovative health technologies like Dialogue more accessible to our employees and customers demonstrates our commitment to supporting the physical, mental and financial well-being of Canadians,” said Brad Fedorchuk, executive vice-president of Great-West Life’s group customer business, in a press release.

“With faster access to health-care and treatment options, patients are better able to manage their health and the health of their families, which in turn can lead to increased productivity and reduced absenteeism. It’s a win-win for employers, their employees and their employees’ families.”

The insurer opted to roll the services out nationwide because it received positive feedback and increased demand after it introduced the offering to select employers in Ontario and Quebec last year.

“We are happy to strengthen our collaboration with Great-West Life so that more employers and employees across Canada can have access to our service,” said Cherif Habib, co-founder and chief executive officer of Dialogue. “The employee satisfaction rate of our services has been a great success at Great-West Life and has helped contribute to a productive work environment that values the well-being of employees.”
