Experts estimate that one-half of the $1 trillion US healthcare spend is a result of poor health behaviors. At Healthrageous, we believe that the key to significantly reducing costs is to help individuals change their health behaviors. Critical to accomplishing this goal is to understand and embrace the unique aspects of each individual - and to provide a solution that optimally supports each person.

A lot of people ask me what Healthrageous is and what we provide. The answer is that we help people engage in their health in new ways and live healthier lives for the long- term. While that may sound like a bit of marketing fluff, there's hard science, complex technology, and expert medical knowledge behind what we are doing. In a previous post, our CEO talked about why disease management (DM) wasn't living up to its hype. Sure, it's easy to critique what's not meeting expectations, but what about delivering something better? We think we have done just that.

In early 1995, I was at the forefront of the emerging disease management (DM) industry with a cancer solution. At that time, DM was seen as a “silver bullet” – an approach that would fix all the ills experienced by employers and payers. It turned out that DM as we imagined it was not the answer to our problems. DM has probably peaked at a $5 billion market, and it is now often dismissed as a failed intervention strategy.
