Demonstrating Results

Evidence for our Belief-driven Behavior Change approach is best represented by case studies showing its successful application. The following case studies demonstrate how our solutions have delivered positive results across health conditions.

Improved Adherence to Preventer Medication in Asthma

Poor adherence to preventer medication is a common problem, which can lead to asthma progression and even greater healthcare costs. Individuals living with asthma can have trouble understanding the asymptomatic and chronic nature of asthma, not realizing their health is at risk.

Approach

Belief-driven Behavior Change was applied through SMS interventions, based on individual beliefs, to improve medication adherence.

Outcome

Adherence to asthma preventer medication improved by 27% at 9-month follow-up.

Highlights

Improved Persistence to Medication in Breast Cancer

Women diagnosed with breast cancer can be prescribed oral medications for up to five years after surgery and radiation treatments. This is especially hard for women who simply want to return to their everyday lives. While these oral medications can prevent cancer from returning, they are associated with unpleasant side effects. It is for these reasons that women may choose to stop taking their medications.

 

Approach

Belief-driven Behavior Change was applied through interventional magazines to improve medication persistence.

Outcome

Persistence to breast cancer medication improved by 23% at 6 months for individuals on the program.

Highlights

Improved Persistence to Medication and Increased Calcium Intake in Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a largely asymptomatic condition that can have serious consequences if left untreated. Treatment involves numerous behavior changes, such as taking medication and making dietary adjustments. The need for treatment can be hard for individuals to understand, especially if they are feeling well.

 

Approach

Belief-driven Behavior Change was applied through health coaching and interventional magazines to improve medication persistence and increase calcium intake.

Outcome

89% of individuals in the program persisted with medication at one year, compared to 68% of patients out of the program. Individuals in the program were more likely to consume two or more calcium servings a day.
