Sun Life introduces employer community to ThrivePass to help manage workplace vaccine verification and testing for COVID-19

WELLESLEY, Mass. and DENVER, Jan. 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Sun Life U.S. has reached an agreement with ThrivePass to help employers with vaccine and testing verification, including a dashboard for employers to holistically view the vaccination and exemption status of their employee population. The ThrivePass Vaccine Verification Solution is a turnkey solution that offers real-time reporting, automated tracking and ongoing employee communications in a HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act)-secured platform.

"Employers continue to express interest in employee vaccine and testing, and are seeking out solutions that make their lives easier in maintaining a safe workplace," said Sheila Sokolski, assistant vice president, Sun Life Product Management. "We are pleased to refer employers to ThrivePass, which can help them ensure the wellbeing of their employees."

ThrivePass offers a "self-serve" format for employees to report their vaccination or test results, which are then verified by ThrivePass. Vaccine exemptions can be customized, and testing verification provides employees with personalized profiles that track their results history. Employers can access an administrative dashboard that tracks real-time employee data.

"We are thrilled to have the support of Sun Life," said Dave George, sales executive, ThrivePass. "As we broaden our market reach with this important solution that so many employers need right now, working with Sun Life provides us with an opportunity to help more employers navigate this uncertain time."
