Here at Vivante Health, we live, eat and breathe the importance of digestive health every day, and when we see results with our clients, we want to shout them from the rooftops. That’s why we’re so excited to share that we worked closely with a non-profit organization to implement GIThrive to their population – and the results were outstanding.
But first, let’s back up: why did this organization decide to implement GIThrive in the first place? For them, there were two reasons: cost, and the health of their members. After conducting a thorough claims analysis, the organization found digestive disease was one of their top five healthcare cost categories. This isn’t surprising, as more and more research continues to show the hidden costs of digestive disease. They also wanted to ensure that the solution they chose was easy for their members to use and could effectively manage the full scope of digestive disease.
After a thorough review, the organization selected Vivante Health. A year following the program launch, the organization revisited their claims data comparing healthcare spend from GIThrive members and non-enrolled members. For all the nitty gritty details, you can download the full case study. For those of you looking for the bottom line, here it is:
- 22% reduction in total medical spend
- 92% of members reporting positive outcomes
- Overall decrease in emergency room visits and inpatient admissions
In addition, members also reported an increase in their overall wellbeing after participating in the program. The organization was able to help its employees dealing with the burden and stress of digestive disease, all while ensuring that their population was able to improve their quality of life.
