Falck Healthcare supports healthy lifestyle with AI in partnership with leading health tech company dacadoo
Falck Healthcare launches a new digital healthcare universe for the Nordics later this year.
Falck Healthcare has partnered with global, leading health tech company, dacadoo, to create a unique digital healthcare universe named Falck Pulse. Falck Healthcare is the largest provider of occupational healthcare in the Nordics, and now the company will use anonymised health data and personal insights to keep employees healthy and fit for the labour market.
"With the launch of this intelligent healthcare universe, we aim at empowering employees to take responsibility for their own health. It will also enable us to provide the right support at the right time when the employee needs it," says Anette Damgaard, SVP of Falck Healthcare.
Early detection of health challenges
Falck Pulse will give employees easy access to both digital and physical counselling sessions with health experts, if the need for treatment arises. A solid insight into their own health is a must to make it easier for employees to understand and even prevent problems with lifestyle, sleep, nutrition as well as mental health. The dacadoo platform is based on 300 million accumulated years of anonymised clinical health data, which assists Falck Pulse in providing evidence-based, personalised feedback and coaching. Through artificial intelligence, digital self-help programmes are also provided in the areas of sleep, diet, exercise and stress, if needed.
“The solution provides a unique opportunity for early detection of employees’ health challenges which prevents longer-term sick leave and ultimately causes fewer employees to lose their employability,” explains Anette Damgaard.
“This will of course support the individual employee, but employers will also benefit from fewer sick days, fewer cases with loss of employability, reduction of cost, etc.”
A unique healthcare solution
dacadoo has global experience and they believe the partnership with Falck offers a unique healthcare solution in the Nordics.
“We are very much looking forward to this valuable, strategic partnership integrating Falck Healthcare's physical and mental healthcare solutions and dacadoo's digital engagement platform,” says Peter Ohnemus, President and CEO of dacadoo.
