Internet discussion boards have long been part of the growth online member groups have witnessed over the last decade. With the introduction of the new Healthper.com“TALK” feature, socialized community discussions will present r a distinctive experience. “Members are encouraged to create new “talks”, offer advice and perhaps a helping-hand to fellow participants who post situations or ask questions” says Narinder Makin, Chief Technology Officer and Co-Founder of Healthper. Makin adds; “We are overwhelmed by the support we have received from our existing clients and participants about our newest addition to the platform. Developing this tool from concept to implementation has given our team the ability work with our population and understand their needs as a community.”
“TALK” offers Healthper members the power to discuss a subject close to their heart, ask fellow members for advice, discuss health issues that may be weighing on their conscience or look for support within the Healthper community. “It’s remarkable the amount of information an individual is willing to chat about online when they feel another has experienced something similar. You tend to feel as if someone is listening because they want to, not out of necessity or obligation.” says Jaime Fiorello, Director of Merchant and Strategic Partnerships at Healthper. “TALK” enables members to increase their engagement level, make new connections and share experiences. All of which improves program outcomes.
Healthper has selected several of the most popular topics to guide the user when creating a new “TALK.” Popular topics include; Depression, Diabetes, Drug Interactions, Eldercare, Cancer, Parenting, Stress, Alzheimer’s and Alternative Medicine. Talks can be created and posted for the entire community to weigh in on, or members can invite specific contacts to discuss a topic privately.
