The secret to wellness isn’t a secret, it’s science.

Arivale takes an intimate and unprecedented look at some of the critical areas of your body and life—your DNA, blood, saliva, and lifestyle—to create a more complete picture of you and your wellness potential. Arivale then pairs you with a dedicated Arivale Coach who offers custom recommendations based on your body’s data and your wellness goals.

We regularly host Scientific Wellness events on the Intuit Campus. All are welcome. View the schedule to see when we’ll be on campus next.

Intuit is covering 75% of the Arivale Pilot Program for 200 eligible Intuit employees (a $3000 value). If you are accepted into the Pilot Program, you will pay $1,000 via a biweekly payroll deduction of $38.46 for a year – a total of 26 deductions.

No, the Arivale program is not eligible for reimbursement at this time.
Full time employees in the Mountain View, Menlo Park and San Francisco offices are eligible to sign up for the Pilot.
Visit https://register.arivale.com/#/intuit/start to complete the enrollment form, which goes live at 9:00am on Wednesday, June 29. Intuit is piloting the Arivale Program with 200 employees on a first come first served basis. You will need to provide your Intuit Employee ID.

The 200 participants will be selected on a first come, first served basis.
The 200 participants will be notified via email on July 1, 2016.

Real Appeal is a program focused on incorporating healthy habits for weight loss in a group setting via telephonic webinars. The Arivale program can support you in weight loss by looking at six dimensions of wellness and a rich set of data – blood, genetics, microbiome, saliva, lifestyle – that can help inform a tailored weight loss program. Your personal Arivale Coach is a Registered Dietitian, Clinical Nutritionist, or Registered Nurse with extensive experience in lifestyle modification. They will help you to decode your data and help you find your optimal path to wellness via monthly one-on-one coaching calls and weekly check-ins via email or text. Employees working on losing weight can participate in both programs to receive additional weekly support in building healthy habits and reaching their goals.
Once you have received confirmation that you are one of the Pilot participants, your first payroll deduction of $38.46 will show up on the August 5, 2016 paycheck.
All updates to payroll deductions are communicated to Payroll directly by Arivale. If you are withdrawing from the program, need to go on pause for medical reasons, or are leaving Intuit and continuing with the Arivale program, contact your coach or concierge@arivale.com as soon as possible and we will communicate with Intuit Payroll to update your deduction status.
Once you complete the enrollment form, you will have an opportunity to explore a sample dashboard. We are inviting employees to “peek under the hood” until July 5, 2016. If you have reconsidered your decision to participate, email us at concierge@arivale.com before July 5, 2016, and your spot will be given to the next person in line.
No. Arivale will provide Intuit’s Payroll Department a list of participants.
If Arivale isn’t the right fit for your wellness pursuits, notify the Arivale Concierge or your Arivale Coach and we will withdraw you from the program. If you withdraw within six months of your start date, your payroll deductions will stop and you will not owe the remaining balance. If you withdraw after six months, you are responsible for the remaining balance paid via payroll deduction.
If your employment ends with Intuit and you choose to discontinue the Arivale program, you will only be responsible for the balance of your contribution if you are more than six months into your program.  If you withdraw within six months of your start date, your payroll deductions will stop and you will not owe the remaining balance. If you withdraw after six months, you are responsible for the remaining balance paid via payroll deduction. Please notify the Arivale Concierge by calling 206-981-5834 or emailing concierge@arivale.com immediately.
If your employment ends with Intuit, you have the option to continue the program directly with Arivale.  If you choose to continue, you will be responsible for the remaining balance of your $1,000 contribution.  Your remaining balance can be paid via your final paycheck or via credit card to Arivale directly. Either way, contact the Arivale Concierge for assistance by calling 206-981-5834 or emailing concierge@arivale.com immediately.
Arivale does not diagnose or treat medical conditions. The program and the information Arivale provides are for your personal educational use in support of nutritional and other lifestyle goals to achieve and maintain wellness.

The Arivale Pilot is a year-long program. We encourage you to register to show your interest. Everyone on the waiting list will be invited to engage in any Arivale community events happening on campus during the Pilot.
Participating in the Arivale Pilot will not directly earn you Virgin Pulse Points. If you are in Arivale, work with your coach to determine if you have recommended action items that you can track in Virgin Pulse for points.
Participating in the Arivale program will not earn you missed paycheck credits. However, if you are in Arivale, you can work with your Coach to maximize how you use other Choose Wellness for Life programs to earn your credit.

My Arivale Coach

You will have a dedicated Coach who will work with you throughout your journey to help you optimize your wellness. Your Coach gets to know you first by reviewing your responses to a set of interactive online assessments and then via an initial 30-minute call to better understand your goals, motivations, challenges, and aspirations. You’ll have a 30-minute call each subsequent month to discuss the next steps in your journey towards wellness. Out of each call you will receive personalized, prioritized actionable recommendations that tie together your personal goals and the data collected throughout the program. In between calls, your Coach will be available via text and email to keep you motivated, answer your questions, and hold you accountable.
Arivale Coaches are Registered Dietitians, Registered Nurses or Clinical Nutritionists.
Each coaching call is unique. The first call is an opportunity to for you to meet your personal Arivale Coach, learn more about your journey, and set your initial goals. During each subsequent call, your coach will: discuss your progress on previous Action Items, discuss any new lifestyle or other data and explain what it means, and prioritize Action Items moving forward that tie together your personal goals with your lab results and lifestyle. Your coach’s purpose is to guide and support you throughout your journey and help you optimize your wellness.

Fitbit Charge HR

Your lifestyle (e.g., what you eat, how active you are) can have an enormous impact on your overall wellbeing. A wearable device like a Fitbit offers great insight into your physical activity, your sleep, heart rate, and more. This provides a wealth of data for us to analyze and, combined with your genetics and lab tests, gives us a more complete picture of you. This way, we can deliver recommendations that are designed to help maximize their impact on your wellbeing. Plus, clients tell us they love the immediate feedback, added accountability, and fun their Fitbit provides.
Your Arivale dashboard is currently compatible with Fitbit and your information will sync up once you connect your device to your profile. We urge you to continue using any device that helps keep you active. We encourage you, however, to at least wear the Fitbit for the first two weeks of the Program so we can get an accurate baseline of your resting heart rate, sleep, and general activity.

Microbiome and Saliva

Your gut microbiome (bacteria in your gut) is a fascinating, emerging area of science and wellness. There is a consensus among scientific and medical experts that the gut is very important for human health. Though research on the gut microbiome is still in its infancy, your microbiome test will aid scientific discovery around this thriving ecosystem within us all. However, its current use to determine the state of one’s health is very limited at this point.
Cortisol and DHEA (found in your saliva) are both important hormones secreted by the adrenal glands that can tell us how your body is responding to stress. Elevations in adrenal hormones may indicate chronic stress and increased risk for a number of diseases, including diabetes, obesity, heart disease and cognitive decline. People who practice regular stress management techniques may be able to effectively decrease their stress hormone levels. While cortisol and DHEA can be measured in blood, studies show that a much better indicator of stress response is obtained when we look at levels at different time points throughout the day, rather than just a single time point like we would get with a blood draw.

Blood Draw Information

Our lab partner, LabCorp, will collect about 95mL of blood, which is about a fifth of the amount of blood collected when someone donates blood. Although the amount of blood collected is small, it is spread across 16 tubes due to all the different clinical tests being run.
To maintain the integrity and quality of your data, you must conduct your blood draw at an approved LabCorp location. Please call the Arivale Concierge desk at (206) 981-5834 to find the approved LabCorp location nearest you and to book an appointment.
Arivale Certified LabCorp locations are equipped to facilitate the collection needed for the 85 biomarkers Arivale measures. We collect a more comprehensive set of measurements than the standard collected during annual biometrics screenings.

My Data

No. At no time will Intuit have the ability to see your identifiable data. As with all its wellness programs, Intuit has requested that all DE-IDENTIFIED clinical lab data be shared with its third-party health analytics data warehouse to track the Intuit population’s overall health trends. None of this data is personally identifiable.
Your results will publish to your Arivale online dashboard. We work with partner labs to collect and analyze your clinical data, and endeavor to get it back to you within 60 days of your blood draw.
No, however we encourage you to share the results with your physician at your discretion.
Your information is stored in two separate databases. Your Personal Identifiable Information (PII) is stored in one Arivale database and all lab test data, genetics data, and lifestyle data is stored in a separate Arivale database. Each database is separately configured and secured with different credentials. All databases are hosted in a HIPAA-compliant, secure, manner in the Amazon Web Services Cloud.
We use your data to deliver personalized, tailored health and lifestyle recommendations to help you optimize your wellness and achieve your wellness goals. On a de-identified, aggregated basis, we may use your data with that of other participants for discovery and to improve the efficacy of our service. By law, we are required to maintain the privacy of your Protected Health Information (“PHI”).  PHI is information that identifies you (e.g., your name, social security number) and may relate to your past, present, or future health and your participation in the Arivale program. We cannot disclose your PHI except (1) if we deem it necessary for your health, (2) to Arivale employees, vendors, contractors that we may use to provide you service (all of whom must abide by our privacy policy), (3) for payment processing (which is limited to your name, not your biological data), (4) if you expressly authorize us, and (5) to the extent we are required to by law (e.g., a court order).
We encourage participants to opt-in and agree to our Authorization for Research and share their data on a de-identified basis. We are assembling a unique data set that will help researchers (both commercial and non-commercial) develop a deeper understanding of what makes human beings thrive and ultimately deliver more effective solutions to advance human vitality and longevity. When you consent to share your information your name and contact information are NOT shared and your data is only used in aggregate with that of others who have chosen to do so. Your decision is voluntary.  

Genetics

We look at genes that evidence suggests are linked to wellness. We do not review or report on medical genetics (e.g., risk for specific diseases such as breast cancer or Alzheimer’s). We will report on behavioral and lifestyle-related genes such as those that increase risk for nutritional deficiencies, genes that may influence your inflammatory response, your ability to respond to environmental toxins and more.  In addition, you will learn what diet may be most effective for you if you are trying to lose weight, how fat and carbohydrate affect your capacity for weight gain, and the link between genetics and soft tissue injury.
We only report genetic information related to your nutritional wellness and lifestyle. We do not report on medical genetic results such as whether you have a genetic variant associated with an increased risk for a specific disease or disorder.
