Babylon teams with Bupa for offering AI tech to corporate customers

Digital healthcare service provider Babylon Health has decided to join hands with Bupa, an international healthcare group based in the UK, for offering AI technology to Bupa’s corporate clients. As per the deal, Bupa customers can access Babylon’s unlimited online GP consultations 24/7 & clinical triage service.

Ali Parsa, founder & CEO of Babylon Health, has stated that Babylon is the first firm across digital healthcare to offer the triage services to corporate customers. According to The Telegraph, employees in the UK with Bupa health insurance coverage will be allowed access to the remote healthcare technology of Babylon.   

Industry experts claim that the association between the healthcare service providers has attained fruition after two years of extensive R&D activities carried out by the players for understanding the application of digital health services across corporate environments.

Sources cite that Bupa’s corporate customers can also access the “digital twin” service of Babylon that assists patients in checking parts of their body with smartphones and access medical advice and assessments. After the launch of online GP consultation & clinical triage service later this month to corporates, Bupa is likely to extend the offer to small & medium-sized enterprises across the UK over the coming years.

Mark Allan, commercial director of Bupa UK Insurance, has said that the firm’s association with Babylon will help it in offering corporate consumers 24/7 access to virtual healthcare solutions. Mark emphasized that Bupa is investing in digital health services that are user-friendly and can be quickly accessed through an app. He further added that the firm shares a common vision with Babylon - to make digital healthcare facilities easily accessible to customers so that they can live healthy lives.

For the record, Babylon had currently announced its collaboration with Tencent Holdings and Samsung Group before teaming up with Bupa Healthcare.
