Sydney, Australia - 7 May, 2020
Sharecare, the digital health company that helps people manage all their health in one place, and Diabetes New Zealand are now strategic clinical content partners to deliver Diabetes New Zealand’s content and resources to people across New Zealand through Sharecare’s mobile-enabled health and wellbeing platform. Diabetes New Zealand is Sharecare’s first founding clinical content partner in the region, integrating its diabetes and services information into the Sharecare experience.
Sharecare provides each user – no matter where they are in their health journey – with a personalised health profile so they can easily connect to the information, programs and professionals they need to live their happiest, healthiest and most productive lives. To help people improve their health, Sharecare enables each member to track their progress toward earning “green days,” Sharecare’s proprietary metric comprised of 13 key health indicators such as stress, activity, sleep, blood pressure and diet. By earning green days, members make progress toward lowering their RealAgeTM, Sharecare’s scientifically validated measurement of health risk and all-cause mortality.
“Diabetes New Zealand is an important foundational partnership as we have launched our comprehensive platform – with resources for all areas of health, ranging from wellbeing and prevention to chronic disease management support – in New Zealand,” said Riaan Rheeder, managing director of Sharecare Australia and New Zealand. “By partnering with Diabetes New Zealand to extend the reach of their research-backed content and connect people to local resources for support, we look forward to helping people manage their diabetes and improve their overall wellbeing, especially as we emerge from this challenging time.”
As part of the partnership agreement, the two organisations will also explore new ways to deliver innovative, personalised, diabetic-relevant content to support at-risk populations across New Zealand.
“Diabetes New Zealand is excited to partner with Sharecare to leverage its technology and platform to reach even more New Zealanders who may be impacted by diabetes,” said Heather Verry, Chief Executive. “With Sharecare’s smartphone-based platform, we have a unique opportunity to steer critical information to people right in the palm of their hands, furthering our goals to connect with and support all New Zealanders impacted by diabetes.”
