SHARECARE - Meet A Vendor
Shortlister hosted Melinda Raymond, VP/Head of Enterprise Sales at Sharecare, and Dr. Jud Brewer, Executive Medical Director of Behavioral Health at Sharecare and Director of Research and Innovation at The Mindfulness Center at Brown University. They discussed Sharecare’s delivery of mindful coping strategies, training, and evidence-based approaches to support your employees and their dependents’ health and well-being.
Sharecare is a digital health solution with high-touch coaching and partner programs to help people manage all their health in one place. As an interoperable health and well-being platform, Sharecare unifies all the individual and community health elements. As a result, everyone can live better and longer across the dynamic continuum of their healthcare needs.
FRAGMENTED HEALTHCARE SYSTEM DRIVING COST AND VENDOR FATIGUE
Mental health conditions cost the U.S. healthcare system more than $255 billion each year. Experts predict these numbers will continue to rise. Sharecare proposes a new mental health and well-being support model that focuses on the whole person with an end-to-end platform enhanced by family and clinical advocates.
Dr. Brewer has developed and tested app-based digital therapeutic programs for anxiety, emotional eating, and smoking. These programs have helped individuals, corporations, and health systems put practical, evidence-based behavior change guidance in the hands of people struggling with unwanted behaviors and “everyday addictions.”
ONE PLATFORM - TOTAL HEALTH
Sharecare’s commitment to mental health, behavioral health, and digital therapeutics is displayed in the following numbers:
SHARECARE’S BEHAVIOR CHANGE PROGRAMS
Sharecare’s Disruptive Behavior Change Platform directly targets unwanted behaviors and mental health through well-researched reinforcement learning mechanisms. Condition-specific digital therapeutics combine education, evidence-based tools, and support from experts, coaches, and peers. This program creates lasting change by addressing habits at their source and the thoughts and emotions that trigger those behaviors.
WILLPOWER AND COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL THERAPY STRATEGIES
Many solutions today are based on willpower and cognitive strategies. Most of them can be helpful in the short term to “change your thinking.”
On the other hand, willpower and cognitive strategies are hardest to use precisely when we need them the most, such as when we’re hungry, angry, lonely, tired, anxious, etc. Over the long term, we fall back on our habitual behaviors, thoughts, and emotions (e.g., yo-yo dieting).
This is the part when Sharecare can lend a helping hand with their Disruptive Mental Health and Behavior Change Platform that offers the following:
