HEALTH HAS CHANGED
Lifestyle diseases that can be prevented by changes in diet, environment, and lifestyle, such as heart disease, stroke, obesity, and diabetes are now the #1 cause of illness and death.
Today, 75% of illness is chronic and lifestyle-driven. The best medicine we have is changing our habits.
Health used to be mostly about curing infectious diseases. Only a few people in a population would be sick at any given time. Now 47% of people have at least one lifestyle disease. And many more are at risk of becoming sick. We need to support people outside of the doctor’s office and in their daily lives.
Daily goals that are small, achievable, and flexible set you up for success whatever your starting point.
Encourage your friends. Let them encourage you. We designed Perk Health to feel like you're on a team.
Meet Chris. Powered by your personality and our research into Behavioral Trait Mapping. Chris teaches you how to create habits that really stick.
Most populations have 20% of people regularly physically active. With Perk Health, your population of people with physical activity or other healthy habits usually doubles.
Helping your population doesn't have to be hard. We've automated everything from rollout to engagement.
We typically see opt-in rates 10x higher than other programs and long-term engagement higher than Fitbit or even addictive apps like Instagram. We guarantee engagement and only charge for people who are actually using the program.
Research: Behavioral Trait Mapping
Why are some people able to start running and stick with it forever? What makes people sign up for a gym membership and fall off a few weeks later? These are the questions we set out to solve. By teaming up with behavioral scientists, personality psychologists, and experts in health and fitness, we’ve begun mapping how a person’s personality influences the formation of new habits and drawing connections between different types of physical activities and unique personality indicators.
The Perk Health Team
It all started in a dorm room at the University of Minnesota. We wanted to create something that would help people find rewards in the things that are good for them. As we looked at the healthcare landscape, we realized this was the only way to make meaningful differences in the economics of healthcare as well as the individual experiences of its users. Enter Perk Health. Inspired by the sports we grew up playing, we’re on a mission to make healthy habits as much fun as tee ball or soccer were when we were kids.
