PRINCETON, N.J. & CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Healthper, Inc., a private company powering a health engagement and achievement platform based on social media and gaming, will present updates on the Company’s healthcare social network during AHIP’s Fall Forum in Chicago. Healthper’s platform will be discussed in the context of the updated “Tribalization of Business Study,” a groundbreaking survey of online communities and strategies for leveraging social media. Ed Moran, co-author of The Hyper-Social Organization, will review the 2011 results of the study as part of the presentation.
“Health plans and employers want to engage members through social networks. This is not as easy as it might seem,” said John Hammitt, President of Healthper. “Everyone needs help staying healthy. That help can come from any number of sources—whether our doctors, families, friends, or co-workers—but asking for help is hard and often not very rewarding. With Healthper, we’re trying to change that, to make it rewarding for everyone involved—a game where everyone wins.”
Healthper helps people accomplish simple daily actions to maintain a healthy lifestyle, create stories about their achievements, share those stories and get rewarded. Developed by the former team from CareGain that helped create Health Savings Accounts (HSAs), Healthper is not just a game, but an extensive and flexible health engagement platform designed to create real value for individuals and their health plans. Healthper’s game- and social network-based engagement platform drives timely health screenings, preventive care, use of cost-effective care options, and appropriate follow-up.
The Healthper session, Hyper-Social Strategies for Health Plans Are Not Optional, will be held November 16, 2011 at 10:15 AM.
