Grand Rapids, MI — Ideomed announced today that it is entering into a pilot employee benefit program with Spartan Motors to determine the cost-effectiveness of the use of Abriiz, the world’s first comprehensive pediatric asthma management platform.
“We are thrilled to enter into an agreement with Spartan Motors to offer this pilot,” says Keith Brophy, Ideomed CEO. “We are excited to see how using Abriiz will result in lowered costs to the company and fewer lost days of productivity for parents of children with asthma. We are confident that this pilot program will support the families and children with asthma to better adhere to their asthma action plans and, ultimately, improve their health.” “We agree with the intent and direction of the Abriiz program and look forward to joining with Ideomed to offer this opportunity to our employees in the coming year,” says Hugh Ogren, Director of Human Resources of Spartan Motors. “Abriiz is a new approach to treating chronic pediatric asthma in an affordable, easy to use platform. We look forward to seeing health of our employees’ children who have asthma conditions, as well as reduced costs.”
Abriiz consists of three unique elements designed to help a child improve adherence to the asthma treatment plan prescribed by his or her doctor: a web module, where a parent or care giver can determine medicines, track progress, set alarm times and determine incentives; a mobile application that records doses, triggers, symptoms and asthma attacks; Based in Charlotte, MI, Spartan Motors employs 1,800 individuals.
