Uphealth is a free cloud and mobile service that sends short messages with important health info from trusted sources. It rewards participation with cash prizes to change people's behavior and help them stay healthy.
Reaching people with important health info is difficult. Health info is hard to find and largely irrelevant, failing to fit into people's lives. It is only available in long form from disparate sources selling you unnecessary things. You also have no reason to find health info if you are already healthy. This leads to low adherence rates for recommended self-management activities.
Uphealth extends established behavior change constructs directly to people like you using a proven participation model. People everywhere need to know about their health and how to take care of themselves. Cash prizes have always been used to get people to do things. Uphealth now connects the two – getting people to know more about and improve their health by using cash prizes.
