Kaido issues healthy challenge to hospital staff


Posted on 5 March 2018 (Permalink)

Digital Health business Kaido has issued its ‘Around the World’ challenge to staff at the largest single-site hospital in the country.

Following an introduction from the West Midlands Academic Health Science Network (WMAHSN), Kaido’s health and well-being initiative is now open to 9,000 staff at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham.

In the challenge, points are rewarded based off positive improvements that participants make to their daily activities; this is monitored via health apps and trackers connected to the platform or by staff manually entering their daily physical activity, sleep or nutrition into the online platform.

Kaido is one of the start-ups in the Digital Health quarter of the Serendip Smart City Incubator, delivered by Innovation Birmingham in collaboration with WMAHSN as the commercial partner.

By using smart technology and access to world-leading health expertise, Kaido aims to empower individuals and their communities to make educated lifestyle choices.

Richard Westman, founder at Kaido, said: “We are delighted to be working with University Hospitals Birmingham to bring Kaido Wellbeing to their employees. They have been extremely supportive of Kaido for a number of months and this is just the first in a number of exciting initiatives planned to improve the health and wellness of the Midlands working community”.
