Empowering people with complex chronic diseases to live the life they want

About 5% of Americans, many with complex chronic conditions, account for 50% of our country’s $3.8 trillion medical spending. Despite having access to solutions, these individuals’ health and quality of life continue to decline. And healthcare costs continue to skyrocket.

Current solutions aren't working

Despite the advances in therapeutics, medical devices, and digital solutions for chronic diseases, the last mile for curbing disease progression and cost is the individual’s behavior change. ZealCare is creating a new paradigm shift in chronic disease care.

COVID-19 made the situation worse

People delayed essential care or avoided it entirely during the pandemic.

Empowering individuals through behavior change and community

Change is hard. It’s not as simple as knowing what to do – many factors, including social drivers and access to resources, make it difficult for patients to follow a therapeutic plan. 

Our solution helps patients make these changes, like taking medications as prescribed, adjusting dietary intake, and managing stress to improve their health and well-being. We do this with a model that is innovative, high-touch, hyper-personalized, coordinated with the healthcare team, and addresses social drivers of health. Also included in the ZealCare solution is a powerful peer-to-peer community that makes the program fun, engaging, and impactful. Our combination of support empowers individuals to be active participants in their health in full partnership with their providers and care team. 

It’s time for a tech-enabled, whole-person approach

Our next-gen approach combines 20 years of evidence-based care models developed and validated by the Duke Center for Personalized Health Care. We have adapted and enhanced these models to provide a new paradigm for managing complex chronic diseases. It incorporates physical, mental, and emotional health based on the patient’s values, needs, and goals for sustained behavior change.
