Why It Matters
Accenture and League are currently working with Shoppers Drug Mart, Canada’s leading retail pharmacy chain, to expand the capabilities of its PC Health platform, which provides people with a network of health care providers, health and wellness programs and rewards for completing health activities. Accenture and League’s collaboration also comes at a time when healthcare organizations are looking for innovative ways to transform their fragmented ecosystems of health services and data platforms. Collaborating will expand both organizations’ core strengths and drive value for organizations throughout the digital healthcare ecosystem with platforms that provide data-driven, intelligent and personalized health solutions.
“Healthcare needs a digital infrastructure to deliver better experiences — and we believe League is key,” said Rich Birhanzel, senior managing director at Accenture who leads its Health practice globally. “For our clients, an underlying open-architecture platform will enable data consolidation and provide a single view of the person. For the end user, League will provide an engaging, intuitive digital front door to healthcare.”
