LYFE signs a partnership with CONCILIO to address inequalities in access to health information

Paris, 22 June 2017

Lyfe, CNP Assurances's digital platform for health and provident services, has announced that it has entered into a partnership with the innovative business Concilio. This partnership now allows Lyfe users to quickly and easily find the best specialists in their medical condition.

Concilio was created in 2015 by Florian Reinaud and Georges Aoun. It is a platform that facilitates contact between patients and physicians based on a network of 15,000 hospital and independent physicians who have all been anonymously and independently recommended by their peers. Concilio also provides up-to-date information on various medical conditions and their new treatment methods to address health inequalities, one of the main causes of which is the difficulty of access to information.

Concilio offers Lyfe users a recommendation from referring physicians based on personal criteria, information sheets on their medical condition, and as a consultation preparation session with a physician-expert by telephone. This service is available to members in France and over fifty other countries worldwide. Concilio also provides full information on the rates charged by physicians and the type of reimbursement available from the French Social Security.

Concilio ensures compliance with ethics and undertakes to provide a selection of at least three names of experts to avoid any distortion of competition. The start-up already covers 5,000 medical conditions in fifteen medical specialities.

'This new partnership with Concilio allows Lyfe to offer its partners and end users additional services to promote access to healthcare and limit health inequalities by facilitating access to information to find the right physician or specialist for every condition.' said Peggy Séjourné, Director of Services Strategy, CNP Assurances.

'We welcome this partnership which allows us to provide our services to a greater number of people and thus promoting equal access to health information.' said Florian Reinaud, co-founder and CEO of Concilio.
