The programs feature evidence-based content, affective and emotional support, and nuanced use of game mechanics to drive patient engagement, feedback loops, and positive emotions.

“By developing positive emotions, building confidence, reducing social isolation and improving behavioral outcomes, the program is designed to activate patients and provide a sustainable framework for behavior change,” said Greg Gossett, CEO & founder of HealthAware. “We know that healthcare systems are looking for answers to the question: how do we get patients to take on self-management of their own healthcare? This program answers the question.”

“Those in the healthcare industry know that education alone is not enough. Patients understand what they need to do but are often powerless in changing their own behaviors in order to accomplish healthier lifestyles,” said Chuck Mitchell, chief product officer at HealthAware. “These programs combine effective elements of evidence based clinical care, habit frameworks and game mechanics in a way that gives consumers and patients the best chance for success.”
