How we started?
We were friends before we were founders.
Friends for decades!
Sushant and Shashank played in the same teams at XLRI 14 years back.
At around the same time, Vineet was a state level Yoga champion.
But then “corporate life” happened.
We got busy with our lives.
We remained great buddies but
work took a toll on our health and fitness.
Our parents got older and
we encountered the complicated maze
of the health , insurance & wellness “industry”.
No one cared if we are
actually getting healthier or not !
We looked around and figured
that our story is not unique.
It’s actually quite common.
We have started Alyve Health with a mission.
A mission to care,
A mission to make it happen.

What is coordinated care? Why is it important?
Coordinated or integrated care is when multiple impact areas are addressed to achieve a health outcome. At IH, we look at 7 impact areas - Motivation & Habits, Physical activity, Sleep & Rest, Mind & Mood, Medical care, Nutrition and Financial protection. Based on the objectives and outcomes desired, multiple impact areas might need to be “activated” in a coordinated or integrated manner. Coordinated care is crucial because its proven through research and years of practice that the human body needs multi dimensional care to respond in the best possible manner. Without knowing the term, you might have already experienced this - for example, in order to lose weight, both nutrition and activity are critical. We do the hard job of finding the experts and coordinating the care for you so that you can just relax and focus on your goals and what you need to do!
How does AH deliver coordinated care?
Firstly, our programs have been designed with great care by the IH team working with certified experts and practitioners. Secondly, we partner with experts across impact areas to deliver a great experience for you. Thirdly, our proprietary technology helps coordinate between the right experts at the right time to deliver a seamless experience to you
What is an “outcome focused personal health ecosystem”?
We understand it sounds like too many words put together to form a nice sounding tag line. But believe us, every word here is important. Let’s walk you through this:
Outcome focused: We are proudly the only company (as far as we are aware) that returns a part of your money if you don’t achieve your outcomes (applicable for coordinated care programs - watch out for the Immunity Promise logo!) . All we ask is to do your bit.
Personal: What you see if “for you”. We don’t believe in blanket advice of walking 10,000 steps, not having carbs etc. - each human being is unique and our offering recognises that
Ecosystem: We will have multiple offerings co-existing to help you achieve more than one objective
Why should I try Alyve Health?
We are outcome focused : We will help you achieve health outcomes - whatever be your objective (well-being, disease management or even a bucket list!)
We are credible : We will connect you to the most credible experts or doctors and take you through your personal journey to guide you and enable you at every step
We are accountable : We return a good part of your money if you don’t achieve these outcomes
How are we ensuring that the Sensitive data of employee (DoB, Mobile Number, Name) stays within the App and is not used for any other purposes (by anyone, including Immunity Health)?
Our database is encrypted with industry accepted standards. Immunity Health does not have access to any personally identifiable information of our customers (your employees) which includes information such as Name, DoB and mobile number.
Furthermore, our database itself is further secured through industry accepted standards as well. Therefore, you can be rest assured that customer information is secured within our platform and is not used for other purposes by anyone, including us.
Will employee consent be required to share their personal data with external vendor?
Yes – employees need to share their explicit consent (to share their personal data) with us when they first register on the app. Alyve Health’s endeavour is to continue to protect our customers (your employees) by offering protection products / services in the future.
In this case as well, customers will need to provide their explicit consent to buy these products / services and for sharing any of their information which may be required at that stage (e.g. their address).
