Prevention and wellness

Effective disability management starts with health promotion. We offer a range of services to help your employees take control of their health.

Health is Cool 360º platform

Our Health is Cool 360° platform helps plan members navigate the Canadian healthcare system, find reliable information and get answers to their questions—online or by phone. Its interactive approach makes it easier for plan members to manage their health. Your employees will be less likely to miss work, which is better for them and for you.

As an employer, Health is Cool 360° gives you:

  • A global snapshot of your workforce’s health, thanks to the Health Evaluation tool
  • An idea of where to focus your health promotion efforts
  • A way to help employees manage stress, depression and other health problems that can lead to absences

Health is Cool 360° also includes the Health PACT service, which offers prevention, assistance and telephone counselling services. It’s designed to:

  • Help employees stay at work through proactive intervention
  • Identify serious issues and the sources of absenteeism and higher group insurance plan costs
