SOMPO Digital Lab is the innovation group of Tokyo-based insurance and healthcare conglomerate Sompo Holdings. Sidekick specializes in the creation of gamified digital therapeutic (DTx) solutions and programs, transforming chronic disease management across multiple therapeutic areas in alliance with key stakeholders in the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries.
The PoC will focus primarily on testing the feasibility of Sidekick’s solution and its ability to enable basic health outcomes such as lower glucose levels, weight loss, increased physical activity, improved sleep quality and emotional well being. The PoC will be performed in partnership with healthcare institutions in the Nordics.
Lifestyle choices continue to contribute to a sharp rise in the prevalence of conditions, such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease. There is tremendous room for improvement when it comes to preventing complications like strokes and heart attacks by impacting lifestyle factors, and Sidekick’s gamified platform is proven to improve patient outcomes and encourage patients to make the right choices, driven by industry leading engagement and retention rates, Sidekick’s Co-founder and Chief Medical Officer Dr. Sam Oddsson said.
