VIDA HEALTH - Meet A Vendor
Shortlister hosted Gretchen Zimmerman, Head of Cardiometabolic Disease, and Kevin Knight, Chief Marketing Officer at Vida Health, to discuss why a single place to treat chronic physical and mental health conditions like diabetes, hypertension, back pain, depression, and more can deliver better results than siloed solutions.
PEOPLE NEED A SINGLE SOURCE TO SERVE AS THE NEXUS FOR THEIR WHOLE HEALTH
It is no secret the healthcare system in the US is increasingly complex for both individuals and companies to navigate. It’s estimated that 40% of the workforce suffers from two or more chronic conditions. Sadly, these people are the most likely to struggle to receive adequate treatment that spans their physical and mental health needs. This leads to an important question: Is treating physical and mental health in a single place effective?
A collaborative care approach that includes mental and physical health can improve overall health because they are two sides of the same coin. Recent studies show Vida members see a 33% greater A1C improvement in treating diabetes and mental health together.
Vida treats the whole person and a whole population by bringing together mental and physical healthcare through the best of technology and the human touch of therapists and coaches.
