Unprecedented Third-Party Validated Outcomes

Our validated outcomes are enabled by our ability to enroll caregiver/Member dyads into our digital caregiver empowerment programs

Unprecedented Outcomes

We completed the first-ever study demonstrating, with statistical significance, that empowering family caregivers reduces healthcare cost for Members (care recipients) living with dementia.

A summary of third-party validated outcomes, determined versus a propensity-matched comparison group, is provided in this validation report.

Projected Net Savings

Based on our validated outcomes for dementia, the following net savings (gross savings less fees paid to Ceresti) in all-Members PMPM are projected for a typical MA plan during the first year, assuming enrollment of 15% of eligible Members with the caregiver-supported conditions indicated.



  • Dementia
  • Stroke
  • Parkinson’s
  • Frailty

Projected net savings are higher for Duals plans due to the higher prevalence of Members who depend on family caregivers.

Member Outcomes

Member outcomes were compared to outcomes from a 3:1 propensity matched control group using a difference-in-differences approach. Enrollees and control group members were matched on a variety of variables, including age, sex, Charlson comorbidity index, geographic region, utilization and six cost categories.

Medical costs





Caregiver Outcomes

Caregiver medical costs were determined for spousal caregiver Members for whom claims data was available, and compared to outcomes from a 3:1 propensity matched control group using a difference-in-differences approach. 

The number of mental unhealthy days (MUHD) reported by caregivers on the CDC-developed Healthy Days assessment declined by 3.1 days over the course of their caregiver empowerment program.  

Caregiver’s net promoter score (NPS), a measure of caregiver satisfaction, was 75.

Process Outcomes

Caregivers who engaged in their programs—an average of 93% of those who were enrolled—spent an average of 39.5 minutes per week engaging in education, coaching calls, messaging, assessments and digital therapies, and completed an average of 2.2 remote risk assessments per week.
