CARY, N.C., June 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Orthus Health, a company committed to minimizing the life and cost consequences of chronic diseases, announced its purchase of BioSignia (including its Know Your Number® Health Risk Index), Doctors Direct Healthcare, and Strategic Health Services.
Through its Health Metrics & Insights Platform, Orthus Health works with employers (and their members) and Health Systems (and their communities) to proactively expose avoidable healthcare risks of individuals and to objectively measure the effectiveness of the interventions deployed to mitigate those risks.
"The risk, prevalence, and cost of chronic diseases have not changed significantly, even in the presence of disease management, increased consumerism, and wellness. Healthcare leaders have difficulty measuring the meaningful impact of these interventions. They are hopeful about the promise of innovative digital health tools but struggle with effectively quantifying their impact. The Orthus Health Platform is purpose-built to solve that problem," says Chris Caramanico, co-founder and President & CEO, Orthus Health.
The Orthus Health Metrics & Insights Platform also includes healthcare budget and productivity insights, valuable tools for business and financial leaders. Health Systems benefit as well by using Orthus Health Metrics & Insights to strengthen their value-based care offerings.
Orthus Health Performance-based Services include clinical oversight, such as disease, case, and utilization management, along with comprehensive wellness, and more. The Orthus Health Metrics & Insights Platform and Orthus Health Performance-based Services are designed to work together or independently, as well as with any other product or service offering.
The newly-formed company is led by a board of directors rich in healthcare experience and well-funded by private investors. Both the board and investors are committed to helping millions of people live healthier lives while saving billions in healthcare costs, for those who subsidize their healthcare.
