Peppy is a digital health app that is looking to change the way employers care for their teams, supporting under-served areas of healthcare.
Through Peppy’s app, the employees of Lockton’s clients can access personalised support from leading health practitioners for family and reproductive health, including: trying to start a family, becoming a parent, going through the menopause, and specialist support for both men’s health and women’s health.
According to Lockton, the health and benefits landscape is changing rapidly, with a greater expectation from employees to be supported across their daily wellbeing, key health journeys and life stages.
Moreover, the increased competition to attract and retain talent means companies are seeking new, innovative, and cost-effective ways to support their people. Lockton said the emergence of digital healthcare opens up new opportunities to deliver support that meets current expectations.
As such, the insurer added that this new partnership will further expand its offering, making a tangible difference to the relationship between their clients and their client’s employees.
Chris Rofe, partner at Lockton employee benefits, said,“People’s lives have changed significantly over the past couple of years and we’re seeing a greater focus than ever on digital solutions and improved accessibility for healthcare. This partnership builds on the compelling offering Lockton has built for clients in the employee benefits space. The fact that Peppy’s proposition is delivered directly by clinical practitioners is the key differentiator that is going to be a great support to our clients’ employees.”
Earlier this year, dacadoo, an InsurTech software developer predicted that the insurance industry will see a rise in digital health platforms. The company said insurers are shifting from traditional payment-delivery systems to a more consumer focused insurance-as-a-service model, and this will result in 67% of insurers offering digital health engagement platforms.
