In 2019, Health spending in Canada was approximately $264 billion, with 30% representing private-sector spending1. Furthermore, Canadians spend almost a billion dollars ($950 million) on counselling services each year2 and lose approximately $2.1 billion in wages due to long wait times for healthcare services3. Many do not receive the full scope of care they need and end up cycling through the acute care system. As organizations focus on issues relating to equality, diversity, inclusion, and mental health in managing employee health concerns it’s apparent that the way group benefits programs are administered needs to change. In the current system, employers are burdened with a siloed approach to managing health and wellbeing, and are using various stand-alone, single issue solutions to address their employees’ healthcare needs. CloudMD recognizes the market needs to integrate disconnected health and wellbeing benefits with technology enabled services to ensure increased access and continuity of care.
