REVERSING CHRONIC DISEASE
Chronic disease now affects over half of our country. We believe this is because today's systems of clinical care are not designed to promote healthy lifestyles, to reward improving health that sustains clinical practices, to identify and resolve disparities, or to address societal determinants of health. We created Lore Health to change this.
A PLATFORM, A COMMUNITY, A SOLUTION
Chronic disease is getting worse because today's healthcare system manages the symptoms of disease instead of treating the root causes of the disease itself. Lifestyle medicine is the key to this, as patients need help improving sleep, nutrition, and exercise while reducing stress. We are building a platform that uses an online community to help each person identify and implement the lifestyle medicine treatments that are most useful to them.
Along with our platform that can makes it easier to effectively treat the root causes of disease with lifestyle medicine, we need a care model that is sustainable for our provider partners. Our approach is to provide upfront funding and investment in clinics and providers who can join us in better caring for Medicare fee-for-service patients. We believe in equality of access for all patients to lifestyle medicine. The provider still bills, and is paid by, Medicare via the same PPS rate, but our ACO allows for immediate investment during a year for better outcomes.
