J&J Launches New Health & Wellness PlatformBy
Johnson & Johnson has formed a new health and wellness platform, Johnson & Johnson Health and Wellness Solutions, Inc., to facilitate the development and implementation of programs that focus on wellness and prevention, behavioral health, and chronic disease support. The programs will leverage expertise from across the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies, including behavioral science, clinical knowledge, and consumer insights, to move beyond product offerings to create holistic, consumer- and patient-centered solutions.
Johnson & Johnson Chairman and CEO, Alex Gorsky, announced the formation of this initiative in Orlando at the Lake Nona Impact Forum, which convened over 200 thought leaders from business, academia, government, and industry sectors to drive creative and innovative health and wellness solutions. “Our focus is on driving innovation and progressing platforms and opportunities that will improve patient outcomes, control rising health care costs and enhance the patient experience,” said Gorsky in a press staement.
Gorsky also previewed the Patient Athlete program as an example of this new comprehensive approach. The Patient Athlete, program, developed by the Johnson & Johnson Human Performance Institute (a division of Johnson & Johnson Health and Wellness Solutions) in partnership with DePuy Synthes Companies of Johnson & Johnson, helps joint replacement patients take their experience beyond pain reduction to learning how to bring their full and best energy to the people and things that matter most in their livesâ€”both before and after their surgery.
Johnson & Johnson Health and Wellness Solutions will focus on three areas: developing health care solutions to improve patient and consumer experiences and outcomes and lower costs; providing innovative behavior modification programs and services to health plans and systems through its commercial business, formerly known as Wellness & Prevention, Inc.; and supporting employee health and wellness within the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies, with a goal of maintaining the healthiest workforce in the world. This will be achieved by combining its capabilities in behavior modification (including digital coaching and energy management training), patient engagement design, healthcare analytics, and clinical expertise with products offered by businesses across Johnson & Johnson.
