Digital brings new opportunities for:
- Service Providers
By combining the theories of behaviour change with the theories of persuasive technology, we are able to offer professionals and individuals effective and evidence based solutions.
What d2 Offer
Here at d2, we have no doubt that there is huge potential for using digital technologies to deliver behaviour change techniques and monitor individuals remotely.
Digital technology can assist with identifying and then reaching the cohorts of the population more likely to be responsive to behaviour change interventions.
Through digital technologies we connect commissioners and services with those looking for self-help, online support or wishing to self-refer.
All services but especially those which have a preventative and/or early intervention remit must be capable of targeting the ‘right’ people and evidencing that they are delivering value for money. There are sections of society who choose, for a variety of reasons, to support themselves or their families through difficult times. A professional may see an individual for the first time at a point of crisis, when they need intensive help or support or even treatment. Up until this point the individual has remained invisible to services.
Through the use of analytic tracking and other digital tools we can identify and guide individuals to the appropriate level of support in order to help them make better informed behaviour and lifestyle choices.
We have experience and evidence of the effectiveness of using digital interventions that increase awareness and offer greater choice of help and support.
With the addition of digital tools; a service’s offer and flexibility is increased, leading to greater choice in how support is delivered. This can lead to sustained behaviour change and healthier choices, ultimately preventing further escalation of problems.
However, we recognise that digital interventions are not for everyone and nor should they automatically replace the traditional face to face sessions for those who need them. Digital technologies are seen as complementing services and increasing choice to individuals.
Information, online self-help and remote support all can all help guide a person to make different choices.
The addition of digital solutions, be they intervention tools or those that support administrative tasks, are advantageous for both commissioners and their services alike.
Through providing early access to appropriate online support services, the invisible population can be supported to make better informed behaviour and lifestyle choices.
Through changing their behaviour an individual may be kept out of services altogether. And a crisis, which often brings people to the attention of public service, may never occur in the first place.
