CAMBRIDGE, MA and EAST GREENWICH, R.I. (PRWEB) December 11, 2017
Today, Twine Health, a four-year-old spinoff of the MIT Media Lab, and Provant, a national leader in comprehensive workplace well-being solutions, announced Provant has adopted Twine’s technology to improve health outcomes for the millions of people that Provant serves.
Twine Health’s SaaS platform is currently being used by 56 workplace health providers and healthcare delivery systems, and helps hundreds of thousands of employees daily. The platform combines an easy-to-use self-management app for employees to use in the context of their daily lives, and a centralized console enabling health coaches to deliver timely, high-impact personalized services that only a human can provide. At the same time, the platform leverages automation and artificial intelligence to triple the number of employees that a health coach can typically manage.
“We looked at a number of options, but Twine’s state of the art technology and focus on coaching as a central component of care set it apart from anything else we saw,” said Tom Basiliere, Chief Information Officer for Provant. “Since we started working with Twine, we’ve found them to be a collaborative and flexible partner, as well. Working together, we’re going to improve member engagement and health outcomes.”
“The technology is easy to learn and use, with a friendly interface that will ease adoption and have a real impact on the health of our members,” said Carleen Lucas, Director of Health Coaching for Provant. “Twine also gives coaches the power to provide instant feedback and help members change behaviors for improved health. It greatly expands a coach’s ability to reach people for encouragement and reinforcement exactly when they need it.”
Provant partners with businesses, including Fortune 50 employers, to provide everything they need to activate, analyze, and reward employee health habits. Its platform integrates a complete wellness program, from quick and convenient biometric screenings; a proprietary online wellness portal; on-site, telephonic, and digital health coaching; seasonal corporate flu shots; a robust health assessment; and more.
“Provant’s philosophy of care follows closely with our own, empowering members with tools to take control of their health and achieve their goals with the help of expert coaches,” said John Moore, CEO and co-founder of Twine. “Our digital platform will be a very natural extension of Provant’s already exciting offering.”
Unlike most services for health behavior change that focus on a single condition at a time, Twine’s platform covers all major chronic conditions for employees with comorbidities. It also encompasses the entire spectrum of care - diet, exercise, medication adherence and more - required to control these conditions in the long run. The results have led to unprecedented published health outcomes for conditions like hypertension and diabetes as well as significant economic savings for both workplace health providers and employers.
