Mobile and Online Technology: Bridging the Gap to Lasting Behavior Change

One we missed before from Dublin based health technology start-up GetHealth, one of the Lucky 13 in the StartUp Health/GE program

GetHealth, have released a new whitepaper which examines the potential of using mobile and online technologies as part of a workplace wellness program in order to achieve lasting changes in health-related behavior. Recent research has shown that simply communicating unbiased information to employees, while important, is not sufficient to create the kind of changes in behavior that are needed. This white paper suggests mobile and online technology can be used as a part of a wellness program to help bridge this gap to lasting behavior change. It can do this by making the process of getting healthy simple, social and fun. The whitepaper can be downloaded for free here.

Thanks to Telecare Aware’s Donna Cusano for the heads up!
