SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Vida Health has been selected as a preferred virtual health provider for Vitality’s new Gateway Flex. As employers face rising costs of employee benefits and the changes brought on by the pandemic, Gateway Flex offers a new way of boosting health and wellness engagement by offering more relevant choices to employees to meet their specific needs.
Through the first-of-its-kind platform, employers select a list of partners that will be most impactful in meeting their employees’ diverse health needs. Employees are then able to select the services they need and can use employer-allocated funds to purchase services of their choice.
As a preferred partner, Vida Health will offer a number of clinically validated programs for users to choose from. The programs include weight loss, stress management, chronic condition management, tobacco cessation, exercise, nutrition, sleep, resilience, and prediabetes.
“Vida has a proven track-record of achieving industry-leading outcomes for its users,” said Tal Gilbert, CEO, Vitality USA. “We were very selective about which vendors we offered as part of Gateway Flex and the sustained behavior change and lasting outcomes Vida’s virtual solution provides were a perfect fit for our member organizations.”
“We’re proud to be participating in this innovative new program from Vitality,” said Vida Health Founder and CEO Stephanie Tilenius. “The only way to solve America’s health problem is by helping people to live healthier lives — one person at a time. The additional people who now have access to Vida through this partnership help us move closer to our goal of eradicating chronic illness in America.”
