How Benessere Works
We want to help you and the medical community, personalize, understand and think differently about health and wellness. By increasing knowledge of illnesses we will be able to better help the global community.
Vital signs are measures to assess the most basic body functions. These signs provide critical information about a patients’ state of health that help:
+ Identify the existence of acute medical problems.
+ Are a means of quantifying the depth of an illness and how well the body may be coping.
+ Are also a marker of chronic diseases.
By understanding your vitals through devices, Benessere may ascertain your ability to…
The world faces an epidemic of individuals who have chronic medical conditions. Most individuals lack the necessary means to catch chronic conditions early enough to have a positive effect on their health.
By personalizing and monitoring your vitals, Benessere can help you understand what you are doing and are not doing to avoid illness. So you can…
We want to empower you through technology by elevating awareness of your health to encourage and promote your health and wellness. Ultimately, Benessere wants to help you stay healthy!
- OUR VALUES
Catalyze.Mobilize change in the global community's approach to health and wellness.
Innovate.Speeding the delivery and bridging the gap between health and technology.
Sustain.Our low-cost, high-impact model is efficient and transparent to maintain sustainability.
Benessere is a startup non-profit entity focused on building health models through big data and utilizing digital devices such as the Microsoft Kinect to help drive down healthcare costs. Our vision is to educate the global community on sustainable health and wellness. Our mission is to challenge the traditional patient episodic care by focusing on proactive “personalized health wisdom.” We aim to detect, reduce and in some cases remove the impact of certain diseases through technology and activity based measurement.
A majority of Benessere’s research targets illness detection through symptoms that we can apply through vitals and activity based interventions. As part of this, Benessere is working with the Medical University of South Carolina, Sacred Heart University, while pursuing additional domestic and global partnerships. We look to increase better health and wellness applications by supporting hospitals/clinics that assist us in validating our models.
Our technology/service targets the digital health experience for the community with the goal of enabling health monitors that record physical and physiological characteristics in health services. The result is that individuals receive “real-time” personal health recommendations over time that results in improved health and wellness results for life.
We invite you to join us and change the world of health, one community and one person at a time.
