Risk Identification and Projection of Outcomes

TrestleTree has the ability to perform stratification on an employee population based on medical claims, prescription claims, biometric data and either internal or third party health risk questionnaire data. TrestleTree will utilize a proprietary "risk interrogation system" to identify:
  • The "at risk" population to be targeted by TrestleTree

  • The current economic burden associated with this population, emerging risk and existing disease states

  • Total costs associated with lifestyle modifiable risk factors

  • Total costs associated with chronic illness

  • Projection or “return on investment” in order to calculate specific performance guarantees

Disease Management

Participants work with their own Health Coach to better understand their condition, manage it and maintain control over it. The model uses a whole-person coaching philosophy that addresses each individual’s unique blend of conditions and disease states as a whole rather than focusing only on the individual's eligible conditions. Participants manage their disease state(s) while simultaneously changing the underlying behaviors that contribute to the development and progression of those disease states.

  • Helps individuals to achieve tangible health behavior change toward physician directives and nationally-recognized evidence-based medicine guidelines/best practice guidelines

  • Goal areas including nutrition, exercise, medication adherence, disease state monitoring and stress management

  • Co-morbidities such as tobacco cessation and weight management, in addition to co-morbid conditions (e.g., back pain, cancer), are also incorporated into the coaching as applicable

  • Understand their health and their life in depth,and develop a comprehensive plan that works specifically for them

  • Disease-specific barriers to change are addressed through the course of coaching as an individually-specified plan for change is developed

  • Ensure appropriate disease-specific screenings and tests as recommended

  • Laboratory measures are collected during each appointment via self-report or as made available through objective methods such as biometric screenings

  • Help access durable medical equipment if made available

  • Primary disease states coached:

    • Diabetes
    • Asthma
    • High Cholesterol
    • Hypertension
    • CAD
    • CHF
    • COPD
    • Other co-morbidities

Prevention and Wellness

TrestleTree’s Prevention and Wellness Program is a comprehensive coaching program that is multi-behavioral focused and includes tobacco cessation, obesity and weight management. Co-morbidities such as disease states and associated behaviors such as medication adherence are also incorporated into the program. Participants work with their Health Coach to identify goal areas and the coaching supports behavior change progress toward participant goals, physician directives and evidence-based medicine guidelines.

 

Participants work with their TrestleTree Health Coach to develop a highly individualized plan to stop using tobacco that increases the likelihood of long-term success. Due to this uniquely personalized model, participants do not have to be “ready” to quit using tobacco when they enter the program. Whether it is to make the decision to quit, develop a quit plan, or working to stay quit, TrestleTree Coaches tailor the coaching with participants based on their unique needs and readiness to change.

  • Incorporate learning from previous quit attempts

  • Understand the unique motivations and barriers of each individual

  • Aim to increase social support and coping strategies for triggers and cravings

  • Include relapse prevention techniques

  • "Whole health" approach (e.g., increase exercise, change poor food habits, handle stress)

  • Outcomes:

    • 50% 6-Month Intent to Treat Sustained Quit Rate

    • Average weight gain less than one pound

Participants work with their TrestleTree Health Coach toward weight loss in a manner that integrates best practice protocols with the unique circumstances of each individual. Because each individual is different, TrestleTree Health Coaches effectively work with each participant to develop a plan and path for weight loss that works for that person within the context and nuances of their life, while supporting physician directives and evidence-based medicine guidelines.

  • Nutrition and exercise changes at the forefront

  • Co-morbidities and associated barriers such as stress are addressed

  • Assess

    • previous difficulties and successes with weight loss

    • self-efficacy about achieving weight loss

    • distinct life factors that are related to weight, nutrition, and exercise


  • Explore what they will gain by weight loss (i.e., motivators) and what they feel they may give up (i.e., barriers)

  • Monitor their food and exercise

  • Work on a thoughtful and comprehensive plan for changing these behaviors

  • Develop ways to maintain these changes over the long run in a way that stands apart from previous attempts at weight loss
