Well.Me, a leader in employee health monitoring, is collaborating with Bupa to bring workplace health tracking to employees in the UK.
The collaboration will provide health monitoring stations to Bupa Health Service’s business customer’s workplaces and a health tracking software application included within the Bupa Be.Me app.
The app will be available to Bupa Health Clinics customers who attend one of its new health assessments launched in September, enabling them to record metrics such as blood pressure, resting heart rate and BMI. This will help users identify trends and take action to make positive lifestyle changes. Bupa is also looking to introduce it to insurance customers in future.
“The provision of health monitoring and tracking by Bupa Health Services for its business clients opens up a new world of health management for employees,” explains Keith Lewis, CEO of Well.Me. “The COVID-19 crisis has shown us the importance of maintaining optimal health and the need to manage conditions such as obesity and high blood pressure.
“Through the Be.Me app, users will have the tools to monitor and track their key health metrics and we are delighted that Well.Me has been able to play a major role in delivering this service.”
Alongside the tracking of health metrics, employees at selected Bupa Health Services client sites will be able to actively monitor their health measurements through the Wellpoint health stations. This data is then fed into the Be.Me digital platform, along with factors such as exercise, nutrition and sleep, to enable the employee to track and understand their fitness profile and make lifestyle changes as required.
“There has never been a time when the monitoring and management of health has been more important,” says Sarah Melia, Managing Director at Bupa Health Clinics. “Well.Me has been an integral partner in the delivery of the Be.Me app and together with the deployment of Wellpoints we hope to make a real impact in improving the health of the nation’s workforce.”
