Healthmovement - for patient empowerment

Lifestyle-related chronic disease spreads in the population and further down in the ages. To help stop this, RISE runs the Project Healthmovement, where we test social outcome contracts to prevent type 2 diabetes and build the service Health Integrator, for proactive health work directed at employers and employees.

Aim and goal

The health movement aims to support the individual towards healthy lifestyle and good health. The project also wants to influence the healthcare system to go from reactive care to proactive Health.

Challenge

In today's society, we live longer than ever before, but we are more and more affected by lifestyle-related illnesses. The burden on the health care system is increasing, while at the same time 80% of chronic diseases such as heart disease, stroke and diabetes type 2 and 40% of all cancer can be prevented according to WHO.

Solution

The project uses the possibility of preventing chronic disease using lifestyle interventions and working on two linked solutions. One is to develop a service, the Health Integrator, which through health profile, health coach and a health marketplace, support the individual to good living habits. Business models and reimbursement models linked to preventive health services are also investigated. The second part is about setting up a social outcome contract with Stockholm County Council as an outcome payer and the likely target group of individuals at high risk of developing diabetes type 2. Possibility for scaling to other European countries is also investigated.

Effect

The Healthintegrator will become a start-up that will in the long run contribute to good health through the spread of its services. If the test of social outcomes contract in healthcare is successful, this can be a model for regions and county councils to work with preventive health using external Resources.
