The Pivio Journey


chronic disease

Pivio helps employees and patients pivot toward optimal health—and away from chronic disease. 

Fighting Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, obesity, or other chronic illness?

Pivio provides an action plan for healthy living. It fosters new habits that help participants thrive. 

The program is rooted in lifestyle-medicine methods that yield measurable results within weeks. These methods empower participants to change their lives for good. Positive clinical outcomes can last for years—or lifetimes. Employers find that their workforce is healthier and more engaged.

When healthful habits go up, costs of medical claims and medications go way down.

In the second year after partnering with LMI in a lifestyle medicine program,  organizations typically see cost savings that are double the amount of their investment.

Transforming Health, One Journey at a time

Life is complicated—and so are the factors that have led to each person’s current state of health. 

Pivio works with participants to identify lifestyle conditions that could allow disease to take root. 

Lifestyle is the cause of many common chronic diseases—and that means it can also be part of treating and even reversing them. Using methods firmly grounded in research, Pivio shifts participants away from unhealthful patterns. It steers them toward a lifestyle that makes them energetic and resilient. It creates positive, long-term change.

Every step of the way, participants are part of a community that supports them on their journey and cheers their success.
