Isa: New functions for individual health goals and analyses

May 3, 2024
Isa averages and targets

Employees can set themselves individual health goals with Isa and receive motivating feedback and valuable analyses to help them recognise and celebrate long-term successes.

We are constantly working to improve the digital health coach Isa by incorporating feedback from numerous users, customers and partners into the development process. We are also constantly training the AI model and further adapting the intervention concept based on scientific findings. This results in iterative improvements to the existing functions, for example in terms of recognising ergonomics or the logic of instructions. Occasionally, however, Isa also receives completely new functions. Below we show which ones have been added recently and what benefits they have for strengthening healthy behaviour.

What's new at Isa?

Until now, Isa was set to automatically delete the usage profile at the end of the day. The reason for this is that we always work according to the principle of maximum data minimisation. This means that Isa only collects, processes or stores the data that is necessary for effective coaching. This means that only the data for the current day is required and stored for personalised support through the provision of tailored advice.

However, due to the daily deletion of the user profile, Isa cannot show how personal health behaviour changes through use or adapt the coaching accordingly. Therefore, in addition to the previous setting, Isa now offers the option to Storage period can be extended as required. Users can thus organise their Track progress in the long term, itself Set individual goals and Achieve success more easily.

1. long-term analyses to monitor success

Users now benefit from more comprehensive insights into their own behaviour. Based on the selected data storage preference, they receive exciting analyses of their daily health behaviour as well as important Analyses of their behaviour over several Weeks or Months away.

Advantages of long-term analyses:

  • Contextualisation of behaviour: Through the long-term analysis of behavioural data, Isa can help to identify the context and patterns that lead to certain behaviours. Employees gain a deeper insight into the underlying causes and can identify trigger points or situations that lead to undesirable behaviour. For example, they can compare whether the ergonomics in the home office and in the office differ and review the set-up of their workplace accordingly.
  • Motivation and self-reflection: The long-term analyses promote self-reflection and awareness of one's own habits. By analysing and reflecting on behaviour over time, better and more motivated decisions can be made to avoid or change undesirable behaviour. Users can track their progress, celebrate successes and thus motivate themselves to positively influence their behaviour.

2. individual & long-term goal setting

Changing behaviour takes time and perseverance. The ability to see the success or failure of one's own efforts in context can increase motivation and help to change behaviour in the long term. Isa therefore enables users to make individual and long-term behavioural changes. Goals who are on their current level of health based.

Isa first determines the level of health behaviour. Based on this, concrete Daily goals that help to implement healthy behaviour in everyday life. The goals can be adjusted regularly, for example every week, so that they are challenging but not demotivating. This leads to employees regularly reflecting on their goals and often Celebrate successes can

Advantages of long-term goal setting:

  • Pooling of resources: Clear goals provide direction for behaviour change and allow resources to be focused on a specific outcome or change. By focussing efforts on the goal, energy and time can be used effectively.
  • Motivation & perseverance: A well-defined long-term goal can serve as a strong source of motivation. It creates an incentive and a sense of purpose, which helps you to put in the effort required to change a behaviour. Goal setting also helps to develop perseverance and stamina by working towards the goal even when faced with setbacks. The prospect of long-term rewards or positive change helps motivate people to keep going even when times are tough.
  • Measurability & self-efficacy: A well-formulated long-term goal is measurable and makes it possible to evaluate progress. When people are seen to be making progress and achieving their goals, they develop greater confidence in their ability to bring about change. This strengthens their self-efficacy, the belief that they are capable of changing their behaviour, and increases the likelihood that they will continue to work on it. The ability to measure and track progress also serves as positive reinforcement and can provide additional motivation.

Promoting long-term health through empowerment.

With Isa, employees can set individual health goals and celebrate long-term successes. The new features of long-term analyses and individual goal setting help them to understand their behaviour and stay motivated. From a behavioural science perspective, this is of great importance, as long-term goal setting and continuous monitoring of behaviour enable desired behaviours to be internalised and new habits to be formed. Studies have shown that the combination of goals and feedback increases the likelihood that changes in behaviour are sustainable and can be maintained in the long term.

By continuously developing existing functions and adding new ones, we want to help make health promotion more sustainable. With Isa, you can empower your employees to take ownership of their wellbeing and health, creating a culture of proactive health management to promote long-term positive habits.
