Our Statement of Purpose
There are several major challenges that we face today. One of them is that of healthcare. The first problem is that everyone is sick, to a greater or lesser extent, that disease progresses and touches more and more people each day. The second problem is that the approach and methods of the current healthcare system cannot address this challenge because it requires addressing the root causes of disease rather than supplying treatments for their symptoms.
The solution is simple: by ensuring good psychological, physiological, and biochemical conditions for the body’s organs and systems to function optimally, diseases are highly unlikely to develop. These conditions rely on a small number of fundamental elements that are easy to understand and apply. The difficulty is in reaching and imparting this knowledge and habits to a large enough number of people in order to have a significant positive impact. To teach, guide, and inspire can most effectively be done through a trustworthy confidant who has all the qualities of the best teachers and mentors, and who is at the same time always available.
To reach and make this available to millions of people can most naturally be done through a phone app. And what better way to interact, impart knowledge, and transform behaviour than an easy and comfortably paced conversation, a conversation that is interesting and inspiring, relevant and useful, insightful and friendly, day after day and month after month.
A system to achieve this must be entirely tailored to each person’s needs, but at the same time be entirely autonomous. It must be highly accurate in its tracking for each person—of their progress and evolution—and it must be rich in content. At the same time, it must allow for continuous additions and modifications to its contents, as well as refinements to its internal tracking system, metrics, equations, and variables.
This solution to the formidable challenge of health care is what Kalibra brings to the world.
