ACLM Announces Addition of Carium to its Lifestyle Medicine Corporate Roundtable
ST. LOUIS (PRWEB) MAY 11, 2020: The American College of Lifestyle Medicine (ACLM) has announced the addition of the healthcare transformation company Carium to its Lifestyle Medicine Corporate Roundtable, a group of individuals and organizations whose collective vision is sustainable human health, a sustainable health care system and a sustainable world.
"Carium bridges the gap between a care delivery setting and a patient’s daily life."
Carium’s collaborative care software platform consists of patient and provider-facing mobile and web apps, built securely in the cloud. The platform connects health care teams to patients throughout the course of everyday life through secure communications and data insights, so they can collaborate to improve health outcomes, increase efficiency and make the experience of health care better for everyone involved.
The company’s team of experts assists its partners to leverage the software for success in fee-for-service and value-based contexts, with skills in clinical transformation, patient engagement, and behavior change science. Carium’s program is designed with flexibility to adapt to evolving clinical and organizational needs with relevant real-time insights and task management to help practices empower patients to stay on track.
Carium’s capabilities in virtual Lifestyle Medicine care delivery were discussed by ACLM member Dave Donohue, MD, FACP, DipABLM, in this webinar — watch the replay here.
“Carium helps to bridge the gap between what happens in a care delivery setting and the rest of a patient’s daily life,” said ACLM President Dexter Shurney, MD, MBA, MPH, FACLM, DipABLM. “This type of solution helps a patient maintain the kinds of lifestyle changes they need for optimal health outcomes. We are pleased to bring Carium into our Corporate Roundtable.”
“We are very excited to support the American College of Lifestyle Medicine and its members. Lifestyle Medicine aligns completely with Carium’s vision of leveraging technology to help connect care teams with people within the fabric of their lives — supporting collaborative models of whole-person care and health for individuals and populations,” said Carium’s Chief Medical Officer, Gregory Weidner, MD, FACP.
The Corporate Roundtable of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine convenes health care and lifestyle thought leaders, with a keen focus on the power of Lifestyle Medicine to transform health and health care. Roundtable members explore effective Lifestyle Medicine clinical applications, strategies for accelerating reimbursement, and adoption and analysis of potential business-related opportunities. The Roundtable launched in 2015 and has grown to include more than 30 active member organizations.
About the American College of Lifestyle Medicine
ACLM is the medical professional society for those dedicated to the advancement and clinical practice of Lifestyle Medicine as the foundation of a transformed and sustainable health care system. Lifestyle Medicine is the use of a whole food, plant-predominant dietary lifestyle, regular physical activity, restorative sleep, stress management, avoidance of risky substances and positive social connection as a primary therapeutic modality for treatment and reversal of chronic disease.
More than a professional association, ACLM is a galvanized force for change. ACLM addresses the need for quality education and certification, supporting its members in their individual practices and in their collective mission to domestically and globally promote Lifestyle Medicine as the first treatment option, as opposed to a first option of treating symptoms and consequences with expensive, ever-increasing quantities of pills and procedures. ACLM members are united in their desire to identify and eradicate the root cause of disease. Learn more at https://www.LifestyleMedicine.org.
