Our outcome-focused approach to managing disease
For every disease we work on, from diabetes to sickle cell, we follow the same framework.
1) We define the goal
Our first step is to clearly identify the single most impactful disease-related clinical outcome (e.g., reduction in HbA1c, reduction in emergency department visits, increase in medication compliance). Once chosen, that outcome becomes our singular goal — and every part of our program is designed to move toward it.
2) We identify critical behaviors and barriers
Next, we engage with the research literature, patient focus groups and clinician interviews to uncover the key behaviors that are critical for achieving our clinical outcome, such as lifestyle changes or glucose tracking, and common barriers to success, such as social determinants, lack of motivation or comorbidities.
We work with doctors, nurses, researchers and patients to collaboratively design an end-to-end program that:
identifies the specific challenges each patient is facing and the type of support they need
helps patients to reliably overcome their challenges
enables them to implement and sustain the key behaviors that lead to clinical success
3) We offer our program to your patients
Our peer mentors guide your patients through a personalized program to help them to understand, track and implement key behaviors — defined based on national guidelines and customized based on each patient’s specific medical recommendations.
We offer programs for diabetes, asthma, HIV, prediabetes, hypertension and sickle cell (coming soon!).
