MAXIS GBN partnership enhances Global Wellness solution

MAXIS Global Benefits Network (MAXIS GBN), has partnered with Intervent, a physician-led, behaviour change and population health management company.

The partnership enhances MAXIS GBN’s global solutions for the prevention and management of multiple chronic diseases, disability condition management, maternity care and other health-related medical cost-drivers. It means MAXIS GBN’s multinational employers have access to comprehensive behaviour change and population health management education programmes, available for roll-out globally.

Intervent is one of the preferred third-party suppliers comprising MAXIS’ Global Wellness solution. Its participant-facing online application provides four solutions as part of a single, integrated platform, including general wellness, maternity lifestyle management, disability condition management and mental health.

Neil Gordon, CEO of Intervent International, said: “The high world-wide prevalence of potentially preventable lifestyle-related chronic diseases and the rising cost of healthcare, provide a sense of urgency for finding innovative behaviour change and population health management solutions for multinational employers.”

The partnership will enhance its ability to drive positive health behaviour change and reduce chronic disease risk in an unprecedented manner on a global scale, he added.

Leena Johns, head of health and wellness at MAXIS GBN, said MAXIS GBN health and wellness reporting acts as a diagnostic tool to help multinationals understand and manage their medical spend. “By partnering with these best-in-class wellness technology vendors we can now also provide a prescriptive solution to the medical conditions that are affecting their employees,” Johns said.
