DaVita Venture Group
Providers are turning to patient engagement to steer results in value-based care models, leading to better outcomes for both patients and physicians. Yet many of these engagement programs focus on providing a one-size-fits-all approach that does not truly engage patients due to cultural and socio-economic differences. ConsejoSano is a multicultural patient engagement platform that leverages 2M+ cultural data points to provide a tailored approach in a patient’s native language, leading to improved outcomes. Launched in 2017, the company is already working with four of the top five managed care plans in the US.
