Dvara Health Savings Account is a new solution being designed by Dvara Holdings. Dvara Holdings incubates and operates a range of financial inclusion initiatives with customer-centricity and suitability of financial products being recurring themes.

We believe that there is an unjust burden on people to manage their health expenses, often resulting in financial distress. This is compounded by health care providers who are often transactional and rarely focused on improving health outcomes over time. Dvara Health Savings Account (HSA) is an innovative solution that will enable users to exercise more control over their health spending, avoid medical bankruptcy and obtain better outcomes for themselves and their families.

The Health Coach is an important member of the primary care team for HSA. We are looking for high-performers with high levels of empathy and patient commitment for this role.

  • Work with the primary care physician to provide periodic check-ins on patients – to ensure adherence/compliance with recommendations made.
  • Provide support over telehealth platforms, text/Whatsapp/email – 7 days a week (but within predefined hours). Any time that the patient wishes to speak with the PCP, they can request the health coach to book an appointment for them
  • Work with patients to effect behavioural change over time.
  • Be a source of advice on matters pertaining to stress management/mindfulness, sleep, dietary practices, exercise habits and other lifestyle-related facets.
  • Act as an approachable source of information to avoid a loss of quality of care if patients are too hesitant to re-approach their physician.
