Why PhenotypeIT for Employees?
Most of us would prefer not to be burdened by chronic diseases that reduce our quality of life. Most of us know that making healthy choices will help us feel better in the long run and reduce the likelihood of needing costly medical care. And yet, many of us routinely make unhealthy choices that compromise our well being. There are complex reasons for this disconnect, ranging from a lack of knowledge through the human tendency toward procrastination to the difficulty of making any major change in behavior.
We understand how hard it is to make positive change - but we also understand how to facilitate that change, how to support you in getting started, making progress and achieving your goals. We know that for change to happen, you have to be engaged in the process. To meet that challenge, we have incorporated the results of the latest academic and clinical research in nutritional metabolism, risk assessment and predictive modeling in a way that is easy and fun to use by the most determined techno-phobe.
Understanding your needs and wants as an individual is the heart of the PhenotypeIT approach. Your personalized portal provides you with customized recommendations for health and nutrition programs, tracks your progress and monitors your risk level. If you are using our platform in a corporate environment, your privacy is protected because your data is always aggregated with everyone else's before being compiled into reports about the company's overall risk profile.
Chances are good that you have already experienced wellness programs administered by your company's HR department. Employers increasingly understand that creating a culture of wellness is a critical component in managing the health and well being of their employees, as well as reducing annual increases in health related expenditures. Wellness programs have been adopted by more than half of US corporations as of 2010, with the number expected to grow to 75% over the next few years.
But have you ever actually completed a wellness program?
Wellness programs traditionally focus on building awareness and completing activities, which only works for people who are highly self-motivated. The PhenotypeIT approach is focused on identifying those behaviors that increase disease risks and targeting the right tools and programs to the individual at the right time. Through active health monitoring, we continuously take in health information to create a highly personalized, dynamic and success-oriented experience.
