Vera Whole Health Seattle, WA
  • Expired: 20 hours ago. Applications are no longer accepted.

Vera Whole Health is transforming healthcare. For insurers and employers alike, Vera helps take control of perpetually rising healthcare costs. Vera’s behavior change model via onsite primary care clinics improves health and productivity, reducing claims and overall cost of care by as much as 25% in the first year.

Vera’s model is anchored by three core elements: high engagement, managed care and organizational culture change, which combine to drive down utilization of costly services like ER, inpatient/outpatient visits, specialty services, labs and prescriptions, and transform the overall health of the organization.

Vera is the first plan-sponsored health center in the United States to earn a Certificate of Validation by the Validation Institute. This endorsement substantiates Vera’s claims that its approach reduces overall healthcare spending for employers, justifies Vera’s 100 percent money-back guarantee, and recognizes Vera for its sound population health cost outcomes.

Empathetic Listening, Esteem, And Behavior Change We provide population health management to large and mid-sized employers. Our delivery model of on-site primary care with embedded health coaching is efficient and effective. But this isn’t what makes us special. We have a powerful secret: Empathetic listening unlocks the door to behavior change and leads to long-term health. Behavior change is the key to health. It’s also the missing ingredient in today’s healthcare system. Here’s why: today’s healthcare system treats symptoms, not people. Our mission gets back to treating people by esteeming them through empathetic listening. This experience unlocks the patient’s ability to think beyond the immediate moment, illness, or symptom by engaging them in a true two-way conversation. It frees them to change their behavior in a lasting way. The results are powerful. We’ve designed each element of our model around this core concept: - Our time rich and accessible primary care approach enables providers to build a strong connection with each patient and build a care plan that addresses each patient’s core needs. - Whole Health Councils, our patient-championed outreach programs create vibrant health cultures in organizations we serve. - Our coaches are experts in behavior change and empower patients to own their health. Population Health Management Done Right Our model has proven its worth in the market since 2012. We’ve integrated with leading health systems like Virginia Mason and Seattle Children’s Hospital, and numerous employers. Now we’re expanding nationally. The model combines our unique behavior change approach with all of the core elements of best practice population health management: - Identifying highly impactable individuals through data analysis. - Intervening and creating tailored care plans. - Providing ongoing service and support to ensure that the care plan is effectively implemented.
