When employees can’t access adequate healthcare promptly, it can reflect in their work. Dialogue offers telemedicine for workplaces; members can video call, phone, or text with doctors and mental health professionals any time of day.
Businesses often notice a higher return on investment when they choose to help prioritise the health of their employees. It can mean better focus, fewer sick days, and enthusiastic workplace culture. It can make finding the right hires easier too: 94% of employed Canadians say they would rather work for companies that take care of their wellbeing.
Dialogue is bringing telemedicine to the workplace all across Canada. When companies sign up for their service, employees receive easy access to nurses, doctors, and mental health specialists through the mobile app.
In Canada, it takes more than six days to see a family doctor for one out of three people. If someone needs to see a doctor outside of clinic hours, their only option is to head to the emergency room. With Dialogue, employees can access the help they need quickly for non-emergency concerns. Members can choose to talk through video, phone, or text for general, skin and preventative health issues. Doctors can prescribe medications to be delivered to the member’s home or workplace, and provide referrals when necessary.
“Here’s another telemedicine approach focusing on wellbeing of employees. Recently, we have featured Ginger and Unmind. The Covid-19 pandemic has led to growth in remote working out of necessity. While there are some benefits, remote working can impact physical and mental health in many ways.
As we see more digitalisation, AI and automation, our key aspects of being human in the workplace – Things like creativity, empathy, and critical thinking become even more important. Employee wellbeing is paramount to ensure our humanness is at its best.” – Dr Vinay Shankar
