Bill Banham's guest today is Martin Blinder, Founder and CEO at Tictrac, a leading Digital Health platform that empowers people through their data.
Martin has been named among the 15 most influential in Digital Health, and he's been featured in Wired, NYT, BBC, CNBC, Fortune, Mashable, the Wall Street Journal, and many other media outlets.
Questions For Martin Include:
- How can wellbeing technologies help employers to better identify employee needs?
- How can wellbeing tech like Tictrac help to improve employee happiness and, therefore, productivity levels?
- A study by Officevibe found that 70% of employees say that friendship at work is the most important element to a happy work-life, while analysis by Gallup found that employees are 50% more likely to report high social wellness if they have a best friend at work. It is generally considered that there are four pillars of wellness – physical, mental, financial and social. While the first three are often focused on within a work context, the last should not be underestimated. Why does social wellbeing need to become a top concern for employers?
- You founded Tictrac back in 2011. The wellbeing market seems to have been growing rapidly over the last few years, from a Tictrac perspective, what are the themes and trends you have been seeing?
- Let's talk about the recent announcement of Dialogue and Tictrac coming together through an acquisition. What opportunities does Dialogue's acquisition of Tictrac create, and what additional value will a customer likely see?=
- What are your predictions for how the global health and wellbeing space will continue to evolve over the coming few years?
- Do you believe employee wellness will remain a top priority for organizations and will digital solutions continue to play a role?
Tictrac is at the forefront of the consumerization of healthcare, centralizing an otherwise fragmented sector around the consumer, with a belief that consumer engagement is the key to better health outcomes. Tictrac won Best New Company at Health 2.0 in 2012 and was recently acquired by leading Virtual Care company, Dialogue.
