Naples, FL (PRWEB) October 13, 2016
The American College of Lifestyle Medicine (ACLM), the nation’s medical professional society for physicians, allied health professionals and healthcare executives dedicated to a lifestyle medicine-first approach to healthcare, today announced Wellsource as a Founding Member of the Lifestyle Medicine Corporate Roundtable (CRT).
In the face of an epidemic of chronic, largely preventable disease, ACLM established the Lifestyle Medicine Corporate Roundtable, bringing together foresighted entrepreneurial, industry, medical and academic thought leaders for strategic collaboration focused on advancing the lifestyle medicine movement. The end goal: sustainable health and sustainable healthcare.
“Identifying risks of health problems is at the heart of what we do,” says Wellsource, Inc. Director of Health and Research Joe Raphael. Our evidence-based tools generate actionable data to drive informed decisions that help build healthier populations. We are thrilled to partner with ACLM as a Founding Member of the Corporate Roundtable and look forward to sharing ideas and solutions that can enable everyone to live the highest quality life possible and reduce avoidable costs.”
Recognizing the new addition into the ACLM roundtable, ACLM President David Katz, MD applauded the work of Wellsource. “We are in the midst of a seismic shift in healthcare. Having actionable data to drive informed decisions when it comes to population health is a vital first step. Couple this with a lifestyle-as-medicine approach and cutting-edge technology for scalability, and we’re on our way to making a critical impact. We’re delighted that Wellsource has joined our team.”
ACLM’s Corporate Roundtable is comprised of lifestyle medicine thought leaders representing healthcare delivery system stakeholders, as well as providers of products and services that are committed to the cause of lifestyle medicine. The roundtable provides a platform for engagement with ACLM leadership and partners in charting strategy around key lifestyle medicine initiatives. These initiatives include a campaign to call out the urgent need for reimbursement of intensive therapeutic lifestyle medicine interventions and a campaign to heighten awareness about lifestyle medicine as a vital solution to address global health and healthcare sustainability.
For nearly four decades, Wellsource has been personalizing population health by designing innovative tools that are grounded in evidence-based lifestyle medicine, making it one of the longest serving and most experienced companies in the industry. Dr. Don Hall, founder of Wellsource, created one of the first technology-based health assessments – a contribution that landed him recognition by Time Magazine.
Today, our purpose remains the same: to serve as the first step to personalized population health by using the power of technology to drive informed decisions with actionable data. Health plans, employers, care and service providers, and delivery networks use our tools for predicting chronic disease risks and reducing avoidable costs.
