Johnston Group Has Upgraded its Wellness Offering to Plan Members with New Innovation from Novus Health
TORONTO, Feb. 15, 2018 /CNW/ – Plan members of Johnston Group will now experience better access to health information with Novus Health’s new update to its digital health navigation platform. Since 2009, the two companies have been improving their plan members’ health through access to my-benefits health, Johnston Group’s navigation platform powered by Novus Health. With this improved responsive tool at their fingertips, it is easier for members to take charge of their overall health. The interactive platform’s resources make sense of the Canadian health care system, explain each member’s options in clear language, and provide customized plans based on the members’ individual health risks. The outcome is better health for members and a reduced burden on our health care system.

This access to the Health Risk Assessment (HRA) tool helps them better understand their personal health risks and what they can do to improve their situation. What’s more, a team of Health Information Specialists from Novus Health are only a phone call away, ready to provide personalized coaching and assistance in both English and French.
Providing a single destination for plan members to access all their programs and services makes it easy for them to utilize the benefits available and allows employers, benefit providers, and similar organizations to offer additional products and services that will enhance members’ lives, reduce health costs, and increase revenue through voluntary benefits and services. Novus Health’s digital platform allows its partners to give their members access to all their program offerings and create a seamless experience no matter how tech-savvy their members are.
