WHO ARE WE?

ViMedicus was founded in 2010 guided by the belief that our healthcare system needs to radically change its approach towards individual health. Today, ViMedicus offers a solution that reduces healthcare costs for self-insured employers, boosts productivity levels, and improves the health of employees with multiple chronic conditions. 

Why We

Do It

"Preventable chronic conditions are a major contributor to the costs of insurance premiums and employee medical claims, which are at an all-time high and continue to rise ".

The Issues

Work-related stress is the leading workplace health problem and a major occupational health risk, ranking above physical inactivity and obesity. 

Workplace Health

Full-time workers who are overweight obese, or have other chronic illnesses miss about 450 million more days of work each year than healthy workers. The result is an estimated cost of more than $153 billion in lost productivity each year 

Chronic Cost

Productivity loss from missed work costs employers $225.8 billion, or $1,685 per employee, each year. 

Productivity Cost

A 1% annual reduction in the level of four health risks—weight, blood pressure, glucose, and cholesterol—has been shown to save $83 to $103 annually in medical costs per person.”

Our Solution

The ViCare Solution:

People plus Technology 

 

ViMedicus’ ViCare Program integrates proprietary MI and CBT techniques with a technology platform to create personalized participant engagement that proactively works with individuals to enable a highly personalized lifestyle change program – focusing on a relentless pursuit of participant engagement. Once an individual is actively engaged, this type of program succeeds in changing lifestyles and reducing healthcare expenditures 90+% of the time. 

 

 ViCare integrates this process with the primary care physician and the clinical team to provide each of the care team members and the patient with a clear, consistent, and coordinated program and to assure the participant of confidentiality. 

The ViCare Guide engages the patient either face-to-face or virtually through a HIPAA-secure telehealth system.

 

 Eligible individuals are identified from an employer’s health plan claims data. One-on-one coaching is enhanced through the HIPAA cloud platform enabling electronic patient reminders, educational content, and care coordination.
