Alere, a Latin verb, meaning "to care for" or "to support", offers solutions that are designed to improve individuals' health from preconception to the end of life, and across the entire spectrum of their health needs, from wellness and prevention for those at risk for an illness, to disease management for the chronically ill, to complex care management for those with multiple, late-stage co-morbidities, as well as solutions designed specifically for women and children.
Personal Health Support Approach
A new model of care is emerging personal health support and Alere is leading the way. It's about focusing on the whole individual rather than just the individual's health issue.
Alere's model of care was designed to identify and impact the most significant individual opportunities for health improvement. This means no two people get the same support experience with Alere. Individuals receive coaching and support based on their individual needs, values and preferences at a time when they feel the most willing and inspired to make a positive change in their life.
At Alere, caring nurses, specialists and coaches with expertise in health improvement support each person who desires better health with a variety of tools, technologies, skills and knowledge to help them define and then succeed with their personal health goals. The idea is to help individuals make realistic and manageable healthy choices to improve their health and quality of life.
Alere has offices and specialty divisions in nearly 50 strategic locations nationwide, with major offices in the metropolitan areas of Atlanta, Dallas, Denver, Phoenix, Philadelphia and Chicago, and in Reno, Nev., Irvine, Calif., Columbus, Ohio, Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and Upper Saddle River, N.J. Its parent company, Alere Inc., is based in Waltham, Mass.
