SidekickHealth Company Profile

11:07 EDT 18th June 2019 | BioPortfolio

SidekickHealth was founded by two practicing physicians, Tryggvi “Thor” Thorgeirsson, M.D., M.P.H. and Saemundur “Sam” Oddsson, M.D., to predict and prevent lifestyle-related diseases. Recognizing that traditional methods of counseling for lifestyle change were not effective enough to bring about the massive shift that is needed to reverse the global epidemic of chronic illness, these two founders brought together a team of physicians, psychologists, public health scientists, biomedical engineers, and game developers and drew on the latest research from leading academic and medical institutions in the U.S. and Europe. The result is SidekickHealth, a highly engaging, gamified service and app featuring programs for diet, physical activity and stress management. The platform is designed to reach those who are in greatest need of lifestyle change, including the 50 percent of adults who have low health literacy, and people with low motivation for lifestyle change. SidekickHealth also helps diabetes prevention programs and chronic disease management programs lower operational costs, improve outcomes, and increase value-based reimbursements.
