Early on in the journey of Perx Health we agreed our mission as a team was “pioneering a motivational health community for everyone”. It sounded great and it represented what we hoped to achieve. Over time it’s evolved into something more than a mission, but a promise from the Perx team to the entire Perx community. That promise consists of three components:
Pioneering: We do things a little different to most healthcare companies and we’re not afraid to sail out into uncharted territory. From finding unique ways to motivate patients to innovative outcome-based pricing. We love testing, learning and experimenting with new ways to deliver digital care in ways that empower and delight our members and ultimately achieve better health outcomes.
Motivational Health Community: Everything in our digital care programs is built around two core concepts - motivation and community. We want to answer two questions. How do we unlock motivation to make forming and sticking to health habits easier? How do we use this motivation to create an empowering community of people living with chronic conditions that celebrates great condition management - in the same way people celebrate achieving other health goals like going to the gym or losing weight?
Everyone: It may not seem like it but this is the most important word in our promise. We believe that too many people living with chronic conditions have been left behind by traditional healthcare. The healthcare system expects people living with chronic conditions to become super-rational, ultra-disciplined, health-literate superhumans overnight following diagnosis, whilst support is often limited to a three-fold brochure or occasional call from a nurse. We’re here to change that. We want to make sure no one is left behind in their journey to chronic condition management and we take an open-minded approach to support and motivation to make sure it works for everyone!
