Reduce weight, reduce claims
When it comes to reducing the financial burden of chronic disease and lifestyle-driven health claims, there are only two effective solutions: prevention and slowing progression of disease.
The best way to implement preventive measures is to offer your members’ access to the scientifically proven Digital Wellness suite of online tools and programs for behavioural change.
Our Total Wellbeing Lifestyle Plan is a chronic disease management program (CDMP) that empowers members to implement online weight management and behaviour change solutions.
We offer a complete suite of lifestyle programs delivered by health care specialists to help improve chronic conditions such as joint pain, high cholesterol, type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure.
The result? A reduction in hospitalisations and complex claims.
How it works
From the initial enquiry to the completed care plan, we support both patients and their health funds every step of the way.
Patients follow a 12-24 week (or longer if necessary) program of the CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet with the support of our Accredited Practising Dietitians.
At the end of the program, we provide a report to the health fund on the progress of the patient.
Our plans are versatile and innovative
The Total Wellbeing Lifestyle Plan is an evidence-based program that helps patients manage their chronic disease by combining nutritional science, modern behaviour change theory and artificial intelligence with the latest digital technology.
The plan can be tailored to support those with chronic diseases or can serve as the backbone of a general wellbeing program.
The plan can be tailored to include:
- 12 – 52 weeks of the CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet online programs
- Optional 1:1 telehealth Total Wellbeing coaching sessions with an accredited dietitian
- Targeted messaging to members
- Evaluation solutions
- Biometric tracking tools
- Educational content to assist with behaviour change
- Extensive reporting dashboards, including predictive churn analysis
