Preventing and managing chronic disease (particularly diabetes), improving nutrition and exercise , smoking cessation, stress reduction, providing healthcare and wellness services to a globally dispersed workforce, physical therapy / rehab (reducing time away from work while recovering from orthopedic injuries), high-risk obstetrics (helping employees & their partners manage the very stressful experience that is a complicated pregnancy), advanced cancer care (enabling employees to actively participate in their own cancer care, including selecting expert oncologists and cutting edge/ evidence-based treatments), value based care (identifying high quality and high value physicians and hospitals for orthopedic & cardiovascular surgeries), and caring for sick family members (including elderly parents).
