The company was founded in 2010 by Peter Ohnemus, who has multiple IPOs and Trade Sales behind him. Dacadoo is headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland with a US subsidiary based in Boston and Palo Alto, California. The company has a scientific advisory board with leading academia and owns multiple patents on the Health Score, Feedback Loop (AI) and Lifestyle Navigation.
The dacadoo mobile health engagement solution enables individuals to track, manage and benchmark their health and wellbeing in an easy and fun way. dacadoo calculates a personal Health Score, a scientifically calculated number from 1 (low) to 1,000 (high) based on over 150 million people years of clinical data, which gives the user an immediate outcome in real-time and makes sense out of a large amount of data points. The Health Score changes in real-time, depending on body values, emotional well-being and activities (exercise, nutrition, stress and sleep).
Users are engaged via patented AI motivation techniques from behavioral science and online games, collaborative features from social networks, and personalized feedback.
Dacadoo is currently available in 10 different languages and it can be accessed via native mobile apps for iPhone and Android, and via the responsive web portal.
Engagement – The Health Score provides wellness managers with a unique, innovative tool to improve employee engagement. The Health Score provides individuals with a measure (a single number between 1 – 1000) of how healthy they are, and how they compare with others. More importantly, their Health Score changes in real-time, day to day, based on their own actions – so people quickly come to understand that they are in charge of their own health. This sense of empowerment provides strong motivation and has been proven to sustain engagement for the long-term. In addition to the Health Score, the full dacadoo platform employs gamifica¬tion, social interaction, rewards and automated, personalized coaching to further energize engagement.
Measurement – Many wellness program managers are under pressure to prove an ROI on their company’s investment in wellness. Attempts to correlate wellness program participation with reduced claims, lower absen¬teeism and higher productivity have largely failed. With the dacadoo real-time Health Score, at the end of any event, e.g. a monthly walking challenge, a program manager can simply run a report to see the increase or decrease in the average Health Score of all the participants. The health impact is immediately quantified!
