It is promoted by 10,000s doctors and endorsed by 5 medical associations. Within the next 12 months, we will have become the first medically-proven digital solution freely available across all continents.
Our premium solution, ElfieWorks, is freely available to employees and their dependents via their employers and insurers. It is today the most advanced and complete solution worldwide for health protection and disease management.
For our distribution of ElfieWorks, Elfie is working in a mutually exclusive partnership with one of the largest insurance brokers in the world. Our teams work very closely with each other every day across timezones.
