A regional agenda connecting the major healthcare services, universities, and community-based organizations(CBOs)  to the learning system and platform brings the technology to life and advances the collective impact of existing programs and initiatives for health and economic development in the region.  Healthier757 includes a strong focus on underserved communities to address health disparities, social determinants of health, and other unique needs of this vulnerable population.

The dynamic game-based platform is easy-to-use and readily accessible to anyone with access to the internet.  Free access to authoritative health information is provided through Rewards for Healthy Living at rewardsforhealthyliving.com.  

 Model Features:

  • game-based learning
  • rewards for progress
  • rich content covering chronic conditions to healthy living
  • scalable, secure, HIPAA-compliant, cloud-hosted technology

Implement

Building on a shared program agenda, metrics, and ongoing collaboration across the region, Healthier 757 program managers work with community and civic organizations, economic development groups, schools and universities, and businesses to enroll citizens and to integrate existing services and resources to improve health. Local universities play a key role serving as strategic outreach partners, providing valuable educational content, and contributing academic research expertise. Program implementation also includes continuous research and data analytics to measure outcomes and measure effectiveness.

Community partners provide outreach programs and serve as a community engagement network including employers, faith-based organizations, community non-profit organizations, economic development groups such as Hampton Roads Workforce Council and Reinvent Hampton Roads, fitness/rec centers, 757 Proud, local Chambers of Commerce, and local municipalities.
