A disruptive solution
At the heart of Open Health is a comprehensive 12-week online health enhancement program designed to tackle everything from high blood pressure to overweight, to psychosocial stress, sleep and environmental factors. Users set their own goals and priorities and can participate as much or as little as they want, all while remaining private and anonymous.
It is derived from an analysis of the most effective models and programs around the world in health, education, psychology and online engagement.
In startup lingo, it’s disruptive health tech. Disruptive means something that changes the status quo.
In medical parlance, 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 a 12 week total health and wellbeing transformation.
