LJUBLJANA (Slovenia), June 26 (SeeNews) - Slovenian software developer Mikropis has said it signed a cooperation agreement to incorporate the database of knowledge of US-based medical research group Mayo Clinic in its 24alife mobile and web solutions. 

As part of the agreement, the Mayo Clinic will also have minority ownership in Mikropis and the ability to use 24alife solutions for its employees across all Mayo Clinic Health System locations, the Slovenian company said in a statement last week.

Mayo Clinic's Resilient Living content, Wellness Library and Health Information Library will be added to 24alife to provide one of the most comprehensive well-being interactive tools in the industry, Mikropis said.

The partnership significantly broadens the relationship that Mikropis and the Mayo Clinic have had over the last five years. It will potentially expand Mayo Clinic's name recognition and standing in the European, Middle East and Asian markets where 24alife has a long-standing market presence, Mikropis added.

"The common goal of both organisations is to raise awareness of ways to achieve a healthy lifestyle and guide people toward healthier and happier lives. I also expect that the combination of Mikropis' technical capabilities that are incorporated into 24alife and The Mayo Clinic's well-being expertise will strengthen both of our organisation's success in the global markets," the CEO of the Slovenian firm, Janez Uplaznik, said in the statement.

24alife is a comprehensive smartphone and web-based well-being platform designed to help public and private employers, governmental entities, associations and other groups promote healthy lifestyles for their employees or members.
