League and Loblaw Join Hands to Develop Next-Gen Digital Health App

Initially available for residents in Atlantic Canada, the PC Health app will be expanded widely across the nation over the coming months.

Fremont, CA: League, North America's leading enterprise health operating system (health OS), has entered into a strategic partnership with Loblaws as part of its Powered by League program. The two organizations have joined hands to develop the PC Health app, a new personalized digital health app built to improve the way Canadians access and navigate healthcare. The partnership will combine the abilities of League's cloud-based health platform and proven engagement model with Loblaw's robust healthcare network, customer reach, and world-class PC Optimum loyalty program.

Initially available for residents in Atlantic Canada, the PC Health app will be expanded widely across the nation over the coming months. Features and functionality will also be added to the app experience to include services such as virtual physician care and digital pharmacy.

The healthcare system is a complex web of information, employer-sponsored programs, providers, and insurers. The new partnership aims to address these issues effectively and provide a unique personalized "front door" to healthcare—one place for Canadians to manage their health and get the necessary help.

"Our company's purpose is to help Canadians live life well, and now more than ever, connected healthcare is of significant strategic importance to our business," says Jeff Leger, President, Shoppers Drug Mart. "This partnership marries our brick-and-mortar offering and experience in the healthcare space with League's proven technology and digital health expertise, enabling us to bring the next generation of digital health services to market on an accelerated timeline."

League's data-driven and the cloud-based platform is designed to offer a seamless healthcare experience. The five-year-old health-tech powerhouse has hundreds of customers across North America, including Unilever, Shopify, Lush, and Uber. With improved health data analytics capabilities, virtual care offerings, evidence-based health programming, and built-in e-commerce, the platform offers a single point to access and navigate healthcare resources and support.

"Through our Platform as a Service (PaaS) offering, Powered by League, leading pharmacies, retailers, health systems and financial institutions can leverage our technology infrastructure to accelerate their digital transformation," says Mike Serbinis, Founder and CEO of League. "We are proud to have an innovative organization like Loblaw as our first Powered By League partner and expect to share more over the coming months."

The platform is currently available in Atlantic Canada via the Apple App Store and Google Play and will be rolled out nationwide in the upcoming months.
