International legal practice Osborne Clarke has worked with Canadian firm Blake, Cassels & Graydon LLP to support Babylon Health, a UK-based leader in digital health, on a ground-breaking agreement with Canada's TELUS Health. The agreement, which will provide millions of Canadians with access to cutting-edge virtual healthcare solutions and services, was led by Babylon's General Counsel Henry Bennett. Commercial Partner and co-head of Osborne Clarke's Digital Health group, Marcus Vass, and associate John Jackson supported Babylon, along with Blake, Cassels & Graydon.
Babylon offers a suite of AI-powered health services, including personal health assessment and treatment information. Osborne Clarke has previously assisted Bablyon in deploying its technology in Asia, in collaboration with Prudential.
TELUS Health is a market-leader in home health monitoring, electronic medical and health records, and consumer health, benefits management and pharmacy management solutions.
The partnership with TELUS Health will offer customers across Canada, where rural conditions mean that five million people do not have access to a family physician, access to healthcare services to complement the existing services in the country. More details, including details of the rollout of the services, will be announced later this year.
"We're delighted to have been able to assist Babylon in making available industry-leading technology across Canada. Babylon's reputation for AI-driven health services represents a fantastic opportunity for both Babylon and TELUS Health", said Marcus Vass.
Osborne Clarke's Digital Health team is established as the leading practice for businesses in the life sciences and healthcare sectors, working with leading global businesses, fast-growth start-ups and market challengers.
