Vida has a range of health experts across 20 different conditions and a platform with over 50 evidence-based programs that can be highly personalized to adapt to the user’s health goals.
Vida is led by Silicon Valley veteran Stephanie Tilenius, former Kaiser Permanente and Stanford physician Connie Chen, and an engineering and design team from companies including Google, Twitter, LinkedIn, Salesforce, Practice Fusion and Counsyl. The Vida team has combined the best of healthcare and consumer tech.

Customer Dee Wiggins came to Vida with hypertension after having a stroke. Her Vida health expert became concerned when during their Vida interactions Ms. Wiggins was reporting symptoms reflective of diabetes. Her Vida coach requested Ms. Wiggins make an appointment with her doctor. Dee was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, put on essential medications to manage her blood sugar, and has lost 30 pounds with significant lifestyle changes through her continued use of Vida. Her doctor said, “I am so glad you are working with your health coach because if you hadn’t been, we would be having a very different conversation and we would be having it in a hospital.”
Another customer, Maria Giordano lost over 20 pounds in three months with support from her Vida weight loss coach and is continuing to improve her health and stay motivated every day.
“Coaching with Vida has definitely helped me take the steps necessary to reach my health goals,” said Ms. Giordano. “ In the past, doing it by myself is what has made me feel alone and contributed to my weight failures, and with Vida I feel like I have a professional helping me every step of the way.”
Vida is free to download and memberships cost $49 per month, $99 for 3 months, or $249 for a year, including full access to 24/7 coaching, multiple experts, and much more. Vida is currently available on Android and iOS devices.
