Managing Chronic Health Conditions
Managing chronic health conditions requires that those impacted make healthy decisions and lifestyle changes. Those without access to the educational resources needed to make informed decisions, along with the support to reinforce healthy habits, are likely to find it extremely difficult to manage their condition.
Health conditions for which management relies heavily on the decisions and actions of the individual cannot be treated only by periodic trips to the doctor and medication. Treatment for these types of chronic conditions require individuals to make lifestyle changes. For example, changes in diet and physical activity. This means making the right decisions and building new habits.
For the reasons mentioned above, Thrive has been given the opportunity to help forward thinking medical professionals solve this difficult problem.
Thrive as an Education and Support Solution
Thrive was designed to create ongoing conversations with people. Each Thrive interaction delivers and collects information, while sharing feedback, resulting in contextualized data. This data can be used to track progress and identify risks to better understand the type of treatment, information and support needed to help individuals manage a chronic disease.
Stopping old habits, creating new ones, and making the right decisions is never as easy as it may sound. Things aren’t going to change overnight, and the impact won’t always be noticeable right away. This means ongoing education and reinforcement is essential to treating and managing chronic diseases.
