Medical Doctor for Telehealth Clinic, Illinois

Aivo Health, Inc. is a digital health company helping people to manage with chronic primary pain. We empower people with a virtual pain clinic accessed over a mobile app. We deliver care safely and sustainably applying innovations in pain neuroscience, behavioral health, data science and digital tools. Combined with your clinical expertise we change the paradigm for the treatment of chronic pain from the treatment of symptoms to continuous precision care addressing the root cause of primary chronic pain – the maladapted circuits in the brain. 

The Aivo Program™ is a unique multimodal program for people with low back pain. The program consists of a virtual clinic with a pain physician, a personal health coach and the support of a moderated peer group. The program also includes educational mindfulness-based cognitive behavioral therapy consumed as short animations, audio recordings and other educational content delivered over a mobile app. The mobile application provides a continuous feedback loop enabling personalized precision care and a means to capture real life data for clinical research.
