Perx Health – Motivating patients to better health
Perx Health offers a digital program that uses behavioural science and
consumer engagement techniques to help patients adhere to their treatment
plans, improve their health behaviours and achieve better outcomes.
In almost every chronic condition, patients struggle to adhere to their
treatment plans. One in three people are now living a chronic condition,
and poor adherence has dire consequences for patient health outcomes,
drives escalating healthcare costs and creates a burden on healthcare
systems. The problem is so pervasive the World Health Organization has
stated that ‘increasing the effectiveness of adherence interventions may
have a far greater impact on the health of the population than any
improvement in specific medical treatments’.
Perx Health uses proven behavioural science and consumer engagement tactics
to deliver programs which help patients achieve adherence rates of over
85%, compared to typical baseline rates of between 40% and 60%. The
programs guide patients to optimal health outcomes, prevent avoidable
hospitalisations and ensure treatments are effectively administered.
Perx Health’s technology consists of an easy-to-use patient app, clinical
management dashboards and an enterprise solution, which makes treatment
plan management simpler, more motivating and much more rewarding.
Perx Health programs have been implemented by some of the leading
healthcare organisations in Australia. These include NSW Health, the
largest healthcare system in Australia, global pharmaceutical companies and
These customers have achieved outstanding outcomes for patients, achieving
adherence rates in excess of 85% in commercial programs. The outcomes have
also been clinically validated in research undertaken by the University of
Sydney and University of Technology, Sydney.
Perx Health recently signed its first customer in the US, and is exploring
potential opportunities in Asia, ensuring patients worldwide can benefit
from better motivation and better health.
