We specialize in making a company’s wellness program ‘sticky’ for employees and measurable for management. GetHealth uses behavioural science to create lasting behaviour change in health habits by delivering a user experience that is simple, social and fun. The evidence-based platform consists of a mobile and online application which allows users to check-in and earn points for their daily health achievements under the Move (physical health), Munch (nutritional health) and Mind (mental health) categories.
In December 2012, our co-founder and CEO (Liam Ryan) saw his Mom hospitalized for 10 weeks due to the sudden onset of chronic pancreatitis. Her lifestyle to that point was characterised by little physical activity, a lack of varied nutrition and she was an ex-smoker. She is now a Type 2 Diabetic, and is forced to manage a lifestyle disease for the rest of her life.
Liam set out with his co-founder Chris Rooney to help people prevent the onset of such diseases, which are caused by unhealthy habits and behaviours, rather than wait until treatment is the only option. They found that many existing apps and programs for improving your health were dull, boring and difficult. Whether it was complicated calorie counting regimes, or the latest fad-diet, Chris and Liam wanted to find a way to cut through the noise and make it simple and fun for people to get healthy. With this in mind, they set out to re-imagine what it means to change behaviour and help people live healthier, longer and happier lives.
