Pack Health and Vituro Health Form Partnership to Improve Prostate Cancer Care
June 20, 2018
Pack Health, a digital health coaching company, and Vituro Health, a healthcare provider that empowers men with comprehensive prostate care during all stages of their lives, today announced a new partnership to deliver personalized support for men with a prostate cancer diagnosis who have not yet gone through treatment.
Through this partnership, Pack Health is developing a digital health coaching program to help men with untreated prostate cancer understand all available treatment options, preparation, and follow-up. The program will also support participants through ongoing prostate monitoring and management. Vituro Health has sourced experienced urologist Dr. Mark DeGuenther of Urology Centers of Alabama to support the development of this program. Vituro Health will provide Pack Health access to their nationwide clinician network to introduce the patient engagement program in the moment where individuals need it most.
“I have been following Pack Health and their success in helping patients for several years. Their expertise combined with our knowledge and execution in the prostate cancer space allows us to create the first dedicated program for men who are dealing with a life-changing disease,” said Clete Walker, CEO of Vituro Health. “A man dies of prostate cancer every 20 minutes, and this program will give men a reliable source for up to date information to aid them in their decision process with their medical professionals.”
“It’s not a topic you might feel comfortable talking about with just anyone,” reflected Pack Health President Mazi Rasulnia, “so Pack Health provides a non-clinical advisor to help bridge the gap between the individual and their clinician.” Rasulnia also noted that though Pack Health has programming for 20+ chronic conditions, this will be their first program specifically geared towards men’s health. “In the spirit of Men’s Health Month, we’re excited to be developing our expertise in how to best activate and support male patients on their treatment journey.”
