FT Advisor: Axa PPP launches LiveSmart healthcare plans

Axa PPP Healthcare has launched a tiered range of three health plans to help companies boost workforce health and well-being.

The range, called Realise Health Plans, combines biometric and online health profile assessments with telephone coaching to help employees understand and manage their health risks.

The assessments are provided by online health coach LiveSmart, and include blood tests to check major body organ functions. The online health profile is used to assess nutrition, physical activity, weight, sleep, smoking, drinking, stress, mood and medical history. The GPs and health coaches partnering with LiveSmart then work up the findings into personalised reports, and will highlight employees’ health risks and opportunities for improvement.

Employees then review their personalised health report through their online dashboard. Health coaching begins with a 50 minute telephone session to review all results and to create an action plan to lower their health risks. This will enable employees to better monitor their own health and potential risks, reduce absenteeism and presenteeism, and enable them to return to work more quickly in the event of illness.
