Powered by psychology, Noom’s evidence-based programs pair a behavior change curriculum with human coaching and peer support to help members uncover the why behind their habits and how to change them. "We’re extremely proud to partner with an innovative organization like Navitus that recognizes the need for an integrated physical and mental health solution to reverse the obesity trend, prevent type 2 diabetes, and reduce stress, ultimately lowering health costs for their plan sponsors and members," says Geoff Cook, CEO of Noom.
Employers are increasingly seeking opportunities to provide cost-saving, effective weight management programs, amid the singular attention on expensive medications, as well as integrated stress management programs that improve the lives of their employees. The collaboration between Navitus and Noom for Work aims to proactively address the long-term health and cost impacts of pre-obesity, pre-diabetes, and stress.
“We are excited to partner with Noom for Work and empower employers and their members with the tools for developing sustainable, healthy habits,” says Laura Jester, Vice President, Clinical Services at Navitus. “Our 20 years of experience in providing cost-saving medication management extends beyond the pharmacy counter, and this partnership furthers our comprehensive approach to affordable, people-centered health care.”
