With Alpha, organizations gain:

Significant cost savings

Fractured, inefficient care from a lack of primary care can result in as much as $421 of avoidable cost per visit for women’s healthcare.

Reduced employee turnover

Organizations with benefits that reflect what their employees need and want see stronger engagement, utilization, and increased job satisfaction—all key predictors of employee retention and referrals.

Reduced spend on misdiagnoses

Misdiagnosed health conditions can cost employers an average of $436 per visit. Women have a higher chance of being misdiagnosed than men.

Healthier, happier teams

Comprehensive, on-demand healthcare that includes support for mental and physical health helps prevent employee burnout and stress.

Competitive compensation

Compelling, DEI-focused benefits attract diverse talent and add value to an organization's compensation plans in a competitive market.

Improved access to care

On-demand, virtual primary care makes it easier for employees to take control of their own healthcare. Having providers who are trained in women’s health encourages women to get the care they need, when they need it.

Better access, better care, better outcomes

Ahead with Alpha™: weight loss through the lens of primary care

The new generation of prescription weight loss medication (GLP-1s) are highly effective and high in costs. The uncertainties around GLP-1s and their real-world results mean organizations need to balance potential with what’s proven.
Ahead with Alpha™ offers businesses an evidence-based weight management solution with ROI built on a foundation of whole-person primary care. Controlling healthcare spend relies on more than medication management and coaching: organizations need a way to address the complex, interconnected nature of obesity and overall health.
