SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) May 07, 2018
Vida Health, a digital therapeutic platform that helps employees overcome chronic physical and behavioral health conditions, today announced the launch of its updated platform for enterprise customers.
Vida leverages deep behavioral science to address comorbid health conditions and produces clinically significant health outcomes across a range of chronic conditions.
The new platform allows enterprises to roll out Vida’s entire platform spanning lifestyle, chronic, and behavioral health solutions, or they can adopt a combination of programs to target a specific segment of their population, for instance those with diabetes and depression.
*New “Vida for Diabetes” and “Vida for Behavioral Health” Solutions*
Vida’s expanded platform includes Vida for Diabetes and Vida for Behavioral Health, amplified digital therapeutic programs with increased personalization, and one-on-one health coaching and licensed therapy. Each solution comes bundled with connected devices, biometrics integration, insights and analytics, progress-tracking, and interactive lessons.
By meeting individuals where they are at and guiding them through personalized programs, Vida helps those struggling with multiple chronic conditions who have traditionally had to juggle a confusing provider system, and fragmented tools and resources. Vida aims to dramatically improve the user experience and drive health outcomes for individuals with comorbid conditions.
This focus on individuals with comorbidities means Vida also helps employers and payers achieve meaningful cost savings. As reference, average healthcare costs for individuals with both diabetes and depression are four times greater than for individuals with neither condition.
“Comorbidities are one of the most pernicious and costly problems in our healthcare system. Vida is the only health and wellness platform to deliver results across chronic and behavioral conditions,” said Stephanie Tilenius, CEO of Vida Health. “There’s a lot of movement in the digital therapeutics space, but very few options for individuals who have multiple chronic conditions. We’re able to drive health outcomes across a broad range of conditions because our entire platform is built on sophisticated behavioral science models and we combine evidence-based programs with real human coaching and therapy. We help each individual at any stage in their health journey understand their situation, make progress toward specific goals, and realize lasting change.”
Vida for Diabetes helps individuals prevent, manage, and overcome diabetes. Vida’s digital therapeutic programs for type 2 diabetes prevention and diabetes management take a highly personalized approach to driving behavior change and lasting results. Its CDC-recognized diabetes prevention program targets 5-7% weight loss, with Vida participants experiencing an average weight loss of 7% after 6 months in the program. Vida’s diabetes management program provides members with tools to focus on nutrition, exercise, stress, medication adherence, and blood glucose management, targeting an A1c reduction of one percentage point or more.
Vida for Behavioral Health helps individuals prevent, manage, and reverse behavioral health conditions. Vida’s digital therapeutic programs for stress management and cognitive behavioral therapy reduce stress, anxiety, and depression, improving emotional health and outlook. The solution includes a mindfulness-based stress management program that targets a 50% reduction in stress, and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) programs supported by state-licensed therapists that target a 50% reduction in anxiety and depression. To date, the CBT programs have reduced depression symptoms, as measured by PHQ-8, by 64% and anxiety symptoms, as measured by GAD-7, by 54% at 6 months for those who completed a program.
“Meeting the varied health and wellness needs of any large, complex workforce requires a nimble, sophisticated solution. Our employees are loving Vida because it’s versatile -- chronic physical and mental conditions are addressed with the same level of robustness,” said Laura Davis, Sr. Director of Benefit Programs at FICO, a long-time Vida customer. “We want our employees to be happier and healthier, and we believe Vida can help.”
Vida Health is currently deployed by leading employers and healthcare companies. Customers include eBay, Cisco, AvalonBay, Steelcase, FICO, MD Anderson Cancer Center, Duke University School of Medicine, Aurora Health Care, Partners Healthcare, and more.
