Vivante Health to Unveil GIThrive® at HLTH Conference
Houston, TX, May 4, 2018 – Vivante Health will introduce GIThrive®, the first and only comprehensive solution to chronic digestive symptoms, a first step towards being a one-stop shop for condition management, at the 2018 HLTH Future of Healthcare conference in Las Vegas, Nevada, May 6 – 9. Combining the latest technology in digital healthcare with an all-important human touch, Vivante is poised to completely redefine chronic disease management, starting with the gut.
According to Dr. Kimon Angelides, president and CEO of Vivante, “The traditional healthcare approach to chronic disease and the dependence on structured electronic medical records often neglects several key components, particularly the patient’s narrative, their story. To date, there has been no room for understanding the human experience in the context of their condition. The lack of psychosocial support to buttress clinical programs creates gaps in care that leave patients confused, frustrated, and suffering.”
Vivante aims to solve all this with its proprietary health management ecosystem that brings together, in one place, everything someone with a chronic condition needs to achieve lasting relief. “Digestive disease is only the beginning,” adds Angelides. “We built this platform to be completely scalable and customizable with all chronic health conditions in mind. We built it to be a one-stop shop for chronic disease.”
On-the-fly AI and deep learning mean every user’s journey to better health is truly personalized. Smart, responsive technology enables the platform’s on-call feature, which makes human support from a health professional available to patients 24/7/365, anywhere—no waiting for an appointment. “Med-ucation” programs empower patients to reduce dependency on expensive prescription drugs. Therapeutic nutrition plans heal inflammation and help inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) sufferers achieve remission. Exercises grounded in behavioral psychology help users adopt healthy lifestyle habits that last right from their phones.
The platform was built to integrate seamlessly with other services. “People have asked us, ‘Can you do this for asthma? Can you do this for diabetes?’ Yep, we can and we have adapted it for asthma, diabetes, allergies,” says Angelides, “and it took our team about three days. That’s it!” He adds, “We started with digestive health because of the growing digestive disease epidemic in the US, which now affects over 70 million. It’s an unmet need with nothing else out there.”
Dr. Angelides is scheduled to speak at the HLTH Future of Healthcare Conference on May 8, 4:30 pm at The Aria in Las Vegas. Company representatives will be on hand at the Vivant Health booth throughout the conference.
