Leveraging Visix in Microsoft Teams: A New Horizon for Employee Health Monitoring


In an era where remote work and digital tools have become the new normal, it’s crucial for organisations to prioritise the health and wellbeing of their employees. A promising development in this domain is the use of health monitoring technology integrated directly into the tools we use daily, Microsoft teams. Visix in Microsoft Teams, an innovative health monitoring application developed by Vastmindz, is leading the way in this regard, providing health scores to individuals by simply looking at their camera directly through Microsoft Teams. Easily deployed and scalable to any size organisation using your existing Microsoft tenant.

What is a Health Score and Why is it Important?

A health score, as generated by ViSix, is a quantifiable measure of an individual’s overall health status, similar to what a Whoop band or Oura ring provides. It’s derived from numerous health indicators like heart rate, breathing rate, stress levels, and more, which are monitored and evaluated by the application all from the simple action of looking at your laptop. This score provides a comprehensive and straightforward understanding of an individual’s health, making it easier for employees to stay aware and make necessary adjustments to their routines.

Enhancing Team Performance with ViSix and Microsoft Teams

The integration of ViSix into Microsoft Teams makes it possible for employees to monitor their health scores while they work, leading to improved productivity and performance.

By utilising ViSix within Microsoft Teams, individuals can monitor their health in real-time, gaining a better understanding of how various factors throughout their workday impact their overall wellbeing. This information can be used to make necessary adjustments to work habits, leading to increased productivity, improved focus, and better job satisfaction.

Using Health Index Measurements for Company-wide Health Monitoring

A health index measurement takes the concept of the individual health score and scales it to a company-wide level. This measurement gives an overall picture of the health status of an organisation’s workforce. It can be used to identify trends, areas of concern, and the impact of health and wellness initiatives. By integrating ViSix into the daily work routine on Microsoft Teams, companies can measure their health index effectively and conveniently, promoting an organisational culture that values health and wellbeing.

Tools for Health Monitoring

The key to effective health monitoring lies in utilising the right tools. ViSix is one such tool that stands out for its convenience and effectiveness. It’s not just a health monitoring tool; it’s a comprehensive health management platform that encourages self-monitoring and awareness.

ViSix provides real-time health score updates, allowing individuals to understand their current health status at any given moment. This encourages self-monitoring, an essential aspect of maintaining good health, especially in a work-from-home scenario where physical activities may be limited.

Types of Health Monitoring with ViSix

Health monitoring can take many forms, and ViSix supports various types, including regular monitoring and event-triggered monitoring. Continuous monitoring provides a live health score, while event-triggered monitoring gives insights into how specific events or activities impact an individual’s health score.

In conclusion, the digital transformation of the workplace presents a unique opportunity to enhance employee wellbeing. ViSix’s integration into Microsoft Teams offers a convenient and effective way for employees to monitor and manage their health. By adopting this technology, companies can create a culture of health awareness, leading to improved employee wellbeing and productivity.
