Perx is a motivation and rewards platform changing the way people and companies approach habits for medication and chronic disease management. We apply a combination of consumer engagement tactics, rewards (like movie tickets and giftcards) and gamification to motivate patients to form and sustain better habits.
We turn the complex bore of disease management on its head: by making its simple, engaging and exciting to do all the tasks for patients to manage their conditions. Our users have told us that we’re “life-changing”, improving their health outcomes and making the experience of taking medication “100 times better”.
We sell our software and rewards program as a service to major institutions who bear the financial cost of poor medication adherence of their patients. We have several large customers already including NSW Health and Pfizer pharmaceuticals alongside some well-known insurers. Our business is growing rapidly and our product evolves every month.
