Population Health Pioneers

Pioneering New Pathways

Our energized and passionate team is keenly focused on changing the course of population health and wellness as we know it today! Orthus Health has found the “secret sauce” to avoiding chronic disease and future healthcare cost burden with our ability to precisely target modifiable health risks and provide a personalized pathway to change for every individual.

We are Pioneering New Health and Data Pathways to minimize the life consequences and costs of chronic disease with our proprietary outcomes-based Know Your Number® disease risk tracker and Enterprise Analytics platform. When modifiable disease risks are pinpointed, Orthus Health empowers employers, health systems, TPAs, EAPs, benefits consultants, and others, to implement the right, relevant programs that actually deliver (the often-eluded) results of reducing healthcare costs and measuring investments in health and well-being. Services also include proprietary enterprise analytics, member wellness and coaching portals, lifestyle and disease management health coaching, pre-condition health management programs, and a robust private-label reseller program with unparalleled marketing and communications support.

What Our Clients and Members Say

"I use my wellness portal that Custom Design Benefits has provided for me as part of my wellness plan.  I log in my weight and sync my daily exercise with my Fitbit to monitor my progress. I also read the monthly New Paths newsletter that is on the portal and browse the site for information. There are good articles that make you stop and think about how much sugar is in the foods we eat.

"I can look at my numbers and progress on the portal. I can see my food and calories, weight, steps, and blood pressure readings. All the info from my physicals is there too. I like that my Orthus Health health coach can see the work I am doing. The proof is right there, and it helps her guide me in the right direction."

"I’ve used the portal to take my HRA every year, and know I can do a lot more to track by using it more regularly. Wearing my device every day is another motivation for me to keep moving to meet my daily step goal."

"I am feeling good. I have been utilizing My Action Plan, and it is working! I am working out regularly, choosing fruits/vegetables and lean meats for a healthy diet.  I have cut coffee out, and today, instead of reaching for the coffee pot, I grabbed a bottle of water."

Your program is a wealth of information, and I have come to rely on the portal “Trackers” in my day-to-day living."

Susanne P Executive Administrative Assistant Tony's Fine Foods

"Orthus Health coaching is an integral part of my success. My coach gives me practical guidance and helps me not to feel guilty if I gain weight. She understands the cravings, and the lack of motivation. Orthus Health's First5 weight loss program is an additional benefit of the Balls Foods’ company wellness plan. I was informed I needed to do the program because my BMI put me in a high-risk category. Now I am off all medications, have lost weight, and continue with coaching to help maintain my success.

Stacey R Customer Service Rep Balls Foods Service

"I participated in 4 Orthus Health coaching programs - weight loss, prediabetes, prehypertension, and quit tobacco and did a medical appeal. I met my weight and BP goals for my incentive.  I am so proud to say I lost 9.2 pounds since starting First 5, reduced BP from 156/92 to 136/70 and down by 18 cigarettes. Following my 6-session programs, I am continuing with extended health coaching to get the ongoing support I need."

Jane P Spouse 53

I started with health coaching 3 years ago to stop smoking. Then last year, while on the First 5 weight loss program, I spoke with Dawn every Tuesday. Once I went back to work, I then spoke with my coach every other week, and now we talk monthly. I’m still making progress on the continued coaching program. Not only has it helped with my weight loss, but coaching has really helped me deal more effectively with family stressors.
