Bupa are looking for companies and technologies bringing low cost wellbeing/healthcare options and solutions to SMEs.



Bupa is an international healthcare company. With no shareholders, their customers are their focus. They reinvest profits into providing more and better healthcare for the benefit of current and future customers.

Bupa's origins are in health insurance and this remains at the core of what they do. They deliver health services where they complement their position in health insurance; giving them greater insight into how health systems work and enabling them to deliver great customer experiences.

They have 16.7 million health insurance customers, provide healthcare to around 15 million people in their clinics, hospitals and dental centres and look after over 22,300 aged care residents in their care homes and villages. 


Private medical insurance can be expensive for small and medium enterprises/businesses (SMEs). Bupa is interested in understanding existing and upcoming solutions that SMEs use to tackle their employee’s health and wellbeing. They are thus looking for companies and technologies bringing low cost options and solutions to SMEs in areas such as employee wellbeing and engagement, health payment/funding packages, access to care solutions, employee data management and analysis, customer experience analysis, procurement system management, etc.

For example, Bupa know many SMEs sponsor virtual GP access for their employees and Employee Assistance Programmes; but what/where are the other technology solutions that provide workplace wellbeing to a business?
