Oshi Health Named One of Modern Healthcare’s Best Places to Work in Healthcare in 2023
NEW YORK, May 17, 2023 – Oshi Health, the virtual specialty care company transforming gastrointestinal (GI) health outcomes and economics, has been selected by Modern Healthcare as one of the 2023 Best Places to Work in Healthcare.
“We are scaling access to care that millions of people have desperately needed, and building a specialized clinical workforce and empowered culture that thrives through virtual care delivery. This opportunity to change lives is what drew all of us to healthcare in the first place,” said Sam Holliday, Oshi Health CEO. “We are honored to be included in Modern Healthcare’s Best Places to Work and are grateful for our team’s relentless dedication to our shared mission to alleviate the daily burden of digestive conditions. Every day, we are motivated by the gratitude and feedback of our members.”
The Modern Healthcare Best Places to Work in Healthcare list identifies and recognizes outstanding employers in healthcare nationwide through extensive employee surveys. The program was created to recognize companies that continuously strive to improve their work environment and increase employee engagement, satisfaction and retention through innovative changes in the workplace.
“An uncertain economy, staffing shortages and increasing demands for flexibility and remote work opportunities are forcing every business in the industry to focus on attracting and retaining talent in unprecedented ways,” said Dan Peres, president of Modern Healthcare. “The 2023 Best Places to Work winners proved the value of understanding what employees want — and need — today. The healthcare industry is going through a period of extraordinary change. Having the right people in place is more critical than ever, and the winning workplaces understand that taking care of employees is central to business success.”
Oshi Health’s virtual multidisciplinary digestive care model makes integrated care – including often-neglected dietary and psychosocial interventions – available 24×7 as a covered benefit. This groundbreaking approach to care is transforming digestive health, conditions that affect 25% of the population and drive significant avoidable costs.
Recent clinical trial results demonstrated 98% member satisfaction while achieving savings of $6,724 per patient in GI-related costs, and $10,292 per patient in all-cause healthcare costs after 6 months in the program. Patients also reported 1.3 fewer missed workdays per month and demonstrated lower healthcare utilization including a 64% reduction in GI-related emergency department visits.
Oshi Health’s GI-specialized clinicians work with members through iterative, highly supportive care to help them come to understand their symptom triggers and achieve sustainable symptom control and relief.
Oshi Health extends traditional gastroenterology practices in a hybrid collaborative care model that makes evidence-based care accessible in collaboration with their local gastroenterologist.
