Company Vision

Wellth strives to maximize behavior change in chronic disease populations by motivating patients to engage in healthy behaviors, while making the process as enjoyable as possible. Their approach incorporates Behavioral Economics, or the study of why people tend not to act ‘rationally in our own self-interests’ to align patient incentives directly with improved behaviors and outcomes.

People adversely affected by social determinants of health may not be optimally engaged in their own self care, despite their best intentions. This intent-behavior gap can be explained by Present Bias: As humans, we tend to be more motivated by instant and tangible gratification than long-term payoff.

To counteract these tendencies, Wellth provides an immediate, appealing benefit for high-risk patients, delivered through a user-friendly experience that unlocks deep, aligned motivations to take action towards healthier decisions.

 

Target Customer: At-risk health systems and health plans seeking to improve clinical outcomes and costs within their highest-risk member populations

Market Footprint: 15+ customers across 6 states

Key Investors: Boehringer Ingelheim’s Venture Fund, AXA Venture Partners, New York Life Insurance Company, NFP’s Venture Fund, CD-Venture, HeathBox, the Partnership Fund for New York City, and Yabeo.


 

Solution Overview

 

Product Description

Wellth’s Medication Adherence Rewards Program motivates individuals diagnosed with chronic health conditions to adhere to the daily behaviors that generate outcomes.

Powered by a Behavioral Economics engine and intuitive smartphone design, Wellth employs a unique approach to provide daily financial incentives to overcome patients’ Present Bias. On a daily basis, enrolled individuals simply snap a photo of their healthy behaviors (e.g. taking a medication) to earn instant financial rewards.
