Description

In the US, lifestyle factors drive 80% of disease, costing $1 trillion annually to treat preventable symptoms. Yet only 4% of spending goes towards prevention solutions. Meaningful behavior change has been an intractable problem, but recently there’s been a resurgence of hope due to a confluence of technology and behavioral sciences leading to health innovations designed to enable healthier lifestyles. However, despite a flood of these innovations, big challenges still stand between hope and desired outcomes. For example, while novel step-counting devices are easy to use and increasing in popularity, many people abandon them after only a few weeks. Why? This presentation will explore our Loop Model to Sustain Health Behaviors. The model harnesses various drivers of behavior to empower people with enhanced self-regulatory capabilities to sustain an effective (holistic, sufficient, and consistent) daily health practice. Additionally, we’ll discuss the inter-dependencies of the
model components and how they act synergistically to achieve an interventional impact beyond the sum of its individual parts. The presentation will discuss the Loop model, and insights derived from an interactive, model-based system with a 10K-user database.
