Providence, R.I. - (November 5, 2018)
Virgin Pulse, the world’s only digital health and wellbeing company that combines software, services, personalization and analytics to drive engagement, behavior change and outcomes across individuals and organizations, today announced that Ron Hildebrandt, Chief Product Officer, will present an everyday scenario highlighting how Virgin Pulse’s high-tech (digital) meets high-touch (live services) approach helps organizations engage employees more holistically in their health at the Oliver Wyman Health Innovation Summit, November 5–7 in Dallas, Texas.
The summit, “Health Redefined: Breaking Boundaries to Build a Better Way,” brings together industry leaders focused on redefining healthcare. Hildebrandt will join other experts for an innovation showcase, “Changing the Game: Innovators Redefining Health.” The session features companies that are actively challenging the status quo in healthcare and transforming
In the showcase, Hildebrandt will walk through the health journey of “Frida,” a 42-year-old married mother of two. With a third child on the way, Frida is overwhelmed and experiencing both physical and emotional health issues. Hildebrandt will highlight the multiple tools and touchpoints Virgin Pulse provides to Frida that help her engage daily to improve her diabetes, depression and overall wellbeing—making her healthier, more present and effective—for herself, her family and her work.
“Like Frida, many people struggle to be healthy amidst their busy and complicated lives. They face tough decisions every day around managing and improving their health,” said Hildebrandt. “Employers likewise struggle to make sense of the increasingly complex healthcare landscape, with multiple, fragmented point solutions that don’t engage their populations—and don’t produce the results they need.”
“The key lies in reducing complexity for employees and their families, actively engaging people every day in making healthy choices, and supporting them as they work to manage, improve and reverse chronic conditions. By blending personalized, high-tech and high-touch capabilities and providing support across the spectrum of health, we engage individuals at every stage of their health journey. We are committed to driving health engagement up and helping individuals make meaningful improvements in their lives, while also helping employers get meaningful outcomes and returns. And, by reimagining the tools, programs and services required for cultivating healthy and engaged employees, we can help organizations address their most pressing and costly healthcare needs.”
“Changing the Game: Innovators Redefining Health” takes place on Tuesday, November 6, at 11:15 a.m. CT at the Fairmont Dallas.
