Our programs systematically implement both multi-layered weight management and disease specific treatment guidelines for large patient cohorts, irrespective of their geographic location.

Healthy Weight For Life™ - intensive weight loss and lifestyle modification
The Healthy Weight For Life™ program delivers the intensive weight loss and lifestyle modification strategies within our various disease management programs.
This best practice weight management strategy focuses on effectively reducing energy intake, increasing physical activity and comprehensive measures to support behavioural change. It strategically combines:
► KicStart™ VLCD – a thoroughly researched, nutritionally complete very low calorie diet (VLCD) meal replacement. It effectively reduces portion size and, consequently, energy intake. The advantages of incorporating KicStart™ VLCD include the motivating effect of accelerated weight loss that may encourage people to continue with lifestyle change and the associated reduction in obesity-related comorbidities.
► A complete portion controlled eating system provides a practical guide for individuals on how to successfully reduce energy intake by selecting the right combinations of food and drink in the right portion sizes for each meal or snack.
► Comprehensive online and printed education and self-monitoring resources are designed to help individuals build up knowledge and practical behaviour changes over time.
►Remote monitoring, targeted motivation and support provided by a team of allied health professionals.
PRIMALINX™ - technology as an enabler
PrimaLinx™ is the powerful and innovative software platform developed by PRIMA specifically to underpin the effective and efficient delivery of every aspect of our disease management programs. The software enables large cohorts of patients to be personally engaged, monitored and managed to achieve measurable and meaningful clinical outcomes.
I am duly proud of the contribution our team is making to the health of the Australian community and I would be happy to answer any questions that you, your family or doctors may have about any of our products or programs.
