Houston, TX, January 2, 2019 – Vivante Health, the digestive health and disease experts and creators of the GIThrive all-in-one digital program for gut health and disease, announced today that Erin Commons will join the company as Associate Vice President of Care Management. Trained as a dietitian, health coach, and behavior change specialist, Commons brings over 20 years of experience to her role.
Although GIThrive is a digital platform, human support from personalized care teams and an emphasis on practical behavioral change are what set it apart from other tech-based healthcare solutions. As AVP of Care Management, Commons will enhance the GIThrive user experience by developing programs and leading care teams that focus on individuals’ strengths. “I believe that every person has a unique path to achieve health, and I want to play a part in helping them find it,” said Commons.
Prior to joining Vivante, Commons served as the Clinical Wellness Director for CareHere, LLC. Her primary emphasis was creating practice guidelines, training the patient care team, and developing patient-facing educational content. Her efforts resulted in 98 percent patient satisfaction with the care team and a significant reduction in medical claims costs for the clients. Commons is a registered dietitian and has a Master of Science degree in Dietetics from Kansas State University.
“I was drawn to Vivante Health, personally and professionally,” said Commons. “I believe that everybody deserves to have a stellar support system and the best evidence as a guide to achieve optimal health.”
“I’m delighted that Erin will be joining us,” said Dr. Kimon Angelides, Vivante Health founder and CEO. “She has a depth of experience and has the right approach to building a team whose focus is to help people find their own strategies. She fits right in with the culture and the trust we are building with our members. It’s exciting!” he added.
With offices in Houston, Nashville, and Athens, Greece, Vivante Health’s global team of experts in digestive disease, microbiome science, clinical care, medicine and technology came together to build the GIThrive platform. It is the first comprehensive program that brings together, in one virtual healthcare hub, all the necessary tools, including instant, on-demand support from a human care team, to effectively manage chronic digestive symptoms.
