President and CEO,
ProMedica has taken the lead in implementing innovative solutions related to the social determinants of health and healthy aging. Under Oostra’s leadership, ProMedica joined forces with Kumanu, a well-being technology firm, to launch Resourceful, which supports employers in addressing unrecognized social determinants of health issues. By combining Resourceful with an existing Kumanu solution called Purposeful, the partnership also enables ProMedica to help employees address the personal determinants of health, such as a sense of purpose and resilience. Early results from the Resourceful rollout helped ProMedica to assess the nature of its employees’ stress and provide deeper insights into its workforce.
