A 360º platform

Welbe platform has self-developed software that allows it to manage workers’ health through data collection and artificial intelligence. This is to locate problems and improve their quality of life and productivity.

The platform integrates all clinical history in one place and gives patients access to this information while allowing doctors to make more effective and efficient diagnoses, says the company.

In this way, the startup is also opening the possibility for Mexican companies to comply with laws related to occupational health, which oblige employers to take actions to maintain and ensure the physical, mental and social well-being of their workers.

Welbe assures that it is the first 360° wellness program in Mexico. It includes a check-up, medical consultation with specialists, telemedicine, laboratory analysis, and mental health care.
