SAVANNAH, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--EdLogics, an innovator in game-based learning, and INTERVENT International (“INTERVENT”), a leader in the provision of scientifically-proven health assessments and interventions, are pleased to announce a unique strategic partnership that will drive positive health behavior change and reduce disease risk by providing comprehensive, engaging, evidence-based products and services.
Behavioral research has demonstrated that the most effective health promotion is a continuum of processes that begins with awareness, progresses through education and motivation, and ends with interventions.
Before committing to interventions, individuals typically move through several stages of readiness which involve thought processes that increase knowledge about risk factors and help motivate them to change. These thought processes are critical to driving an individual to begin changing behavior.
Together, EdLogics and INTERVENT cover the full continuum of health promotion through a seamlessly integrated product offering that engages users and achieves sustainable behavior change and positive clinical outcomes. The EdLogics Platform offers a unique approach to consumer health education by combining interactive games and multimedia learning programs with incentivized gamification to create a fun and engaging learning experience. The INTERVENT digital and telehealth coaching programs are evidence-based interventions that have been proven effective in numerous peer-reviewed clinical trials.
“The partnership between INTERVENT and EdLogics brings together a truly unique set of services which will enable us to impact the entire process of behavior change, resulting in higher utilization and engagement, improved health outcomes, and decreased healthcare costs. EdLogics’ innovative game-based learning, gamification strategies, and incentive programs, coupled with INTERVENT’s world-class health assessment and management programs will be a game-changer,” said Thomas M. Chamberlain, PharmD, CEO and founder of EdLogics.
“Rapidly escalating healthcare costs, together with the recent paradigm shift from volume to value-based health care, have focused increased attention on the urgent need for consumer-centered health and wellness solutions that truly work. We are extremely excited about entering into a strategic relationship with EdLogics to integrate our proven outreach techniques, health assessments, and risk reduction interventions with their cutting-edge, education-based engagement solutions to revolutionize the health and wellness industry on a global basis,” said Neil F. Gordon, MD, PhD, MPH, FACC, CEO and founder of INTERVENT.
