The partnership offers solutions across the entire continuum of employee well-being, including virtual health
REDMOND, Wash. — (Jan. 26, 2021) — Aduro®, a provider of corporate well-being solutions that drive Human Performance, today announced a partnership with leading bi-coastal health providers, Providence and Bon Secours Mercy Health (BSMH), to offer employers an integrated virtual care solution. This holistic platform is a critical solution for improving employee health and well-being and will play an increasingly important role in lifestyle behaviors, as well as early detection and ongoing maintenance of chronic conditions such as depression, diabetes, and hypertension.
The Problem with Chronic Condition Management
Employees are struggling with chronic health issues, from diabetes to depression. Until now, well-being solutions have done a poor job of supporting people who have chronic conditions. Most corporate wellness companies have tried to address chronic health issues by taking medical care out of the hands of health systems and replacing it with software, self-help content, and coaching. Unfortunately, these solutions fall short of truly providing meaningful care for employees.
Since March 2020, 46% of patients are actively using telehealth according to a recent report by McKinsey & Company1. Aduro’s partnership with Providence and BSMH hopes to accelerate this trend with the industry’s only personalized, digital-to-human experience in which employees can engage with lifestyle content, multi-modal coaching, precision care, and rapid access to health care providers in a virtual context. Unlike traditional corporate wellness solutions, Aduro runs on one secure platform and universal data model. This delivers a better quality of life for employees and a single, cost-efficient option for self-insured companies.
Traditional corporate wellness has failed condition management. Wellness companies have tried to address chronic care independently, outside of our largest health systems, but in a way that is not holistic. Our Human Performance approach puts the employee experience at the center of the equation, provides rich, integrated health and well-being support, and does so through a single platform in partnership with the country’s most credible health systems.– Dr. Darren White, Aduro CEO
Aduro’s New Chronic Condition Management Solution is Different
Aduro is taking a different approach that will revolutionize chronic condition management. We started our quest for a better solution by asking ourselves, “What is best for employees?” Inevitably, we came to the conclusion that real people with real chronic health issues need real support from real medical professionals. So instead of taking health systems out of the equation, we have partnered with two of the most respected health care providers in the country, Providence and Bon Secours Mercy Health.
Aduro’s connected care solution will be fully integrated with the company’s well-being platform and services – aligned with Providence and BSMH medical pathways to ensure a smooth onramp for employers. The integrated solution will be available through Aduro in 2021.
For the first time, we are creating digital to human connections, while sharing data across the entire continuum of health and wellness instead of being siloed within companies and health systems. That’s going to result in better health support, better experiences, and a better quality of life for all employees.– Mike Waters, Chief Executive, Ambulatory Care Network at Providence
Integrated Virtual Care
Our partnership will culminate in the 2021 release of a virtual care solution (also called a telehealth solution) that will connect employees directly with health care providers in a virtual context. This partnership makes Aduro the only well-being solution in the world to close the gap between corporate well-being programs and health providers, empowering companies to support employees across the entire continuum of well-being — from lifestyle improvement to early detection of chronic conditions and significantly, all the way to medical care from health care providers.
Our patients, associates, and consumers want easy access to their health and wellness information through an integrated virtual solution that is responsive to their needs. We are excited to continue to collaborate with Aduro and Providence to better enable these capabilities as we anticipate robust utilization.– Justin McGoldrick, M.D., Chief Research and Innovation Officer, Bon Secours Mercy Health
