Sun Life announces Lumino Health network

Sun Life has launched the Lumino Health network (luminohealth.ca) – an online network of health resources to all Canadians.

The Lumino Health network will help Canadians make better decisions about the providers, products and services that they use.
This is a resource where Canadians can find all this health information at their fingertips, using accurate and trusted provider ratings, cost transparency.

There are many situations where people may need help finding health care
information or a new health-care provider. They could be dealing with a new health
condition requiring specific treatment, they’ve moved to a new town, or their regular provider has retired.

The information they need will now be available at their fingertips through Lumino Health.
Sun Life’s relationships with health-care providers and innovators – along with millions of clients – provides them with a wealth of valuable data relating to health-care costs, claims, and provider locations and ratings.

With Lumino Health, they use this data to provide Canadians with better choice, better access, and better value when it comes their health-care decisions.
