Gamification or using gaming techniques to incentivize and encourage participation cuts across all human activities.
And so it is with healthcare…Let’s face it, we humans, as opposed to robots, don’t automatically stick to our goals, because we have competing wishes — to rest, to try something else, to do things differently.
Introducing fun and results through “game mechanics” does improve things for patients and professionals. So, it is not surprising that Doctors 2.0 & You has been partnering with Games for Health fand itsounders Jurrian and Sandra van Rijswijk. Here you see Jurriaan on stage at Doctors 2.0 & You. And below, you can watch the video.
We hope you’ll join Denise Silber in Utrecht where she’ll help moderate some exciting sessions at the 5th Games for Health event on November 2-3, 2015.
