DESCRIPTION:

Noom Health combines mobile technology with behavioral psychology to deliver preventive interventions to populations at risk for chronic conditions such as Type 2 diabetes.

Through a combination of automated and human interventions, Noom Health coaches patients to control their diet and activity levels in a sustainable manner. A variety of tools aid in this process. For instance, the virtual coach delivers timely, tailored guidance and motivation, while in-app support groups led by trained facilitators bolster patient engagement.


CLINICALLY VALIDATED:
Noom works closely with research institutions and government organizations on innovative studies and clinical trials focused on mobile preventive health.
Examples of recent collaborations include:

* Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai: Noom is collaborating with Mount Sinai on a National Institutes of Health grant-funded study testing an intervention using mobile technology to treat eating disorders.

* Life Insurance Foundation of Korea: Noom designed a virtual weight loss program for office workers which resulted in an average weight loss of 9.5 lbs. Our mobile program outperformed an in-person intervention by 340%.


BUILDING ON A PROVEN CONSUMER PLATFORM:

Noom has been developing consumer behavior change applications for over 6 years.
Our weight loss application has been incredibly successful across multiple application stores.

Key Accomplishments:
* 28M installs across Noom’s suite of applications
* Average weight loss of 10 lbs
* 65% four-month retention
* Healthkit partner
