Bravo! Entrepreneur award
Andrew J. Seter
Dr. Andrew J. Seter is certified in internal and occupational medicine, but he’s built his company by meeting the health care needs of businesses throughout southeastern Wisconsin.
Two decades ago, Seter established Sensia Healthcare, which provided workers’ compensation services, work injury treatment, pre-placement exams, drug testing and other health-related services for companies.
“We were providing some wellness services, but the majority of our work was reactionary,” he said.
In 2012, Seter sold the occupational medicine side of his business to a national firm and turned his focus to wellness. It retained the Sensia name and became Sensia Wellness.
“I think it’s fair to say (American society) spend(s) a significant amount of money on disease and not nearly enough on prevention,” he said. “Through my experience with corporate health care, prevention is at the core of a lot of workplace issues.”
Sensia Wellness provides on-site health and wellness services for companies throughout the area, including blood pressure screenings, cholesterol screenings, smoking cessation programs, weight loss programs and even health assessments.
“It comes down to identifying the risk in your workplace population,” Seter said. “By providing a significant amount of educational resources and services in a convenient, easy-to-access manner, we can significantly reduce and address those risks.”
Sensia works with small- to medium-sized companies and can provide a scalable portfolio of services so companies feel comfortable at any level budget, Seter said.
The company has also developed its own in-house software that serves as the central component to the services it offers, Seter said.
Sensia continues to add functionality to the already robust software, and hopes to eventually license the software to other corporate wellness providers.
