ABOUT US
At Vida, we help people get better — and we’re helping the healthcare system get better, too.
Vida is a virtual health clinic that provides expert, personalized, on-demand health coaching and programs from a network of experienced health care providers — like Registered Dietitians, Therapists and Health Coaches — through an easy-to-use app. We focus on managing chronic cardiometabolic conditions — like diabetes, obesity and hypertension — as well as achieving lifestyle health goals like eating more healthfully, getting more exercise, losing weight and reducing stress.
By combining advanced technology with the top-notch healthcare providers, Vida is breaking down the barriers that have historically kept people from getting the best care. We are trusted by Fortune 1000 companies, major national payers and large providers to enable their employees to live their healthiest lives.
