What We Do
We focus on cold, flu, and virus prevention. The hard and soft costs associated with these infections continue to be a massive societal burden.
The Problem: Cold, Flu, and Viruses
The cost of seasonal influenza to employers is staggering. Each year in the US, 111 million workdays are missed because of the flu, costing billion of dollars each year1. With the advent of the Coronavirus, the economic impact is even more significant.
Additional Complications: Pneumonia and Sepsis
The death rate from pneumonia in the US has had little improvement since antibiotics became widespread more than half a century ago.1 Pneumonia is the most common cause of sepsis and septic shock, causing 50% of all episodes.

The Solution: Simulated Learning
Viven Health Infectious Disease Prevention Program
Viven Health is different from other teaching methods. Our Infectious Disease Prevention Program provides simulated learning, a proven approach to effect behavior change.
- Cold, flu, other viruses, pneumonia and sepsis can be reduced by improved hygiene.
- Simulated learning can change behavior to reduce infections for employees and the community
- Infectious disease illness and absenteeism reductions are possible
