Time To ELEVATE Your LIFE!
“We provide custom supplemental healthcare protocols for companies that have an existing corporate wellness program but need to see more effective and more sustainable results, and for companies of any size shifting from being commercially insured to being self-funded or self-insured.”
In many ways the history of our company resembles a true David and Goliath story in the sense that we are a very small cog in the wheels of the gigantic corporate wellness industry. In 2012, inventor and entrepreneur Drew Taylor, along with his sons Jason and Joshua, opened their first raw juice bar in San Antonio, TX. As their business grew to multiple stores they learned more and more not only about the health benefits of juicing, but from talking to their customers they began to learn why so many of these customers had given up on the mega healthcare industry to meet their medical needs.
At this point fate brought together Drew and Dr. Michael Boss, an expert on nutrition and holistic medicine. Together they took a hard look at the state of the healthcare industry and learned that 50% of the critics (Wall Street Journal, Harvard Business Review, The Huffington Post, etc.) said corporate wellness programs don’t work to improve health or reduce costs, and 50% said wellness programs did work. Looking through the eyes of an entrepreneur, Drew understood that any industry so divided was ready for change and ripe for opportunity. As they researched the industry they learned that traditional wellness programs are not individualized enough to actually make a difference in the health of the average employee; the industry had no standard measure of true health (limiting their metrics to height, weight, BMI, blood pressure and cholesterol); and not a single provider would guarantee results.
Essentially, Drew reduced the industry problems to a matter of education, nutrition, accurate metrics and behavior. At this point he and Michael created a new standard of health metrics: “The True Measure of Wellness™; a scoring software generated from a comprehensive metabolic assessment and comprehensive blood evaluation. This software module is used to custom design a health plan of action for each employee. For the educational and behavioral component Drew brought in training and development specialist, Baxter Castro Coffee, and together with Dr. Boss they developed the Elevate Life Assurance Protocol™ which was designed, not to replace existing wellness programs, but to make them more effective and profitable.
Their first client was a company that was commercially insured, but wanted to become self insured or self-funded. In order to make this transition they needed to improve the overall health of 20% of their employees. Elevate was given the mandate to improve the health of a sample of their employees by 5%. We guaranteed them that we would deliver results in 90 days. At the end of the first trial the Elevate Protocol improved the health of their employees by a staggering 17%, and the rest is history as more and more wellness providers incorporate the Protocol into their existing wellness programs.
