At the heart of Open Health is a comprehensive online health enhancement program designed to tackle everything from high blood pressure, blood sugar or cholesterol, to overweight, stress, sleep and environmental factors.
The program has been derived from an analysis of the most effective models and programs around the world in health, education, psychology and online engagement. Users set their own goals and priorities, all while remaining private and anonymous in their facilitated small online peer groups.
In startup lingo, it’s disruptive health tech. Disruptive means something that changes the status quo.
In medical terminology, it’s an evidence-based tailored online comprehensive lifestyle change program with peer support and personalised feedback. It’s also a chronic disease self-management (CDSM) program.
In the education world, it’s a lot like a MOOC, that is, a Massive Online Open Course, aimed at widespread participation.
In popular terms, it’s an opportunity for a health and wellbeing transformation.
