The public face of Open Health will be a vibrant online health and well-being community. At the heart of that community will be a personalised, holistic, 12-week online health enhancement program designed to tackle everything from high blood pressure to overweight, to psychosocial stress and sleep.
In startup lingo, its a disruptive health tech startup. 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 unlimited participation and open access.
In popular terms, it’s a 12 week total health and wellbeing transformation.
You set your own goals and priorities, and take (or leave) as much as you want, all while choosing your own level of anonymity. However you engage, you will be supported by your peers on the journey.
It’s a program you can use personally to take charge of your health, to address lifestyle-related conditions and risk factors and to improve your enjoyment of life, whether your health practitioner refers you to it, your workplace makes it available to you, or you simply want to improve your health and wellbeing.
