Happify Health launched Kopa, a platform targeted towards people with chronic conditions. The first component of this new platform is Kopa for Psoriasis, a product created to provide resources and community for those living with the condition. Kopa in beta is now available through the App and Play stores.
Psoriasis is a chronic skin disease that causes red, itchy scaly patches, most commonly on the knees, elbows, trunk and scalp. There is no cure for the condition but incorporating lifestyle habits and coping strategies can help one to live better with psoriasis.
Kopa for Psoriasis provides people with a platform for open discussions with other psoriasis sufferers, patient advocates and medical professionals within a safe and moderated community. Kopa for Psoriasis also engages patients by providing resources to help manage their disease journey, including education around treatment options, advice to help control symptoms and flare-ups, assistance with questions around how psoriasis affects work and relationships, and guidance to improve sleep, diet, exercise and mental health. In the coming months, Kopa for Psoriasis will continue to add new features to further support the psoriasis community, reports BusinessWire.
“With the launch of Kopa, we’re reimagining how healthcare is delivered to people with chronic conditions,” said Tomer Ben-Kiki, Co-Founder and CEO at Happify Health. “Our goal is to provide easily accessible tools, personalized content, community support and access to medical experts to help people live happier, more fulfilling lives.”
Happify Health selected psoriasis as the condition for their first Kopa product because of the common comorbidities people with psoriasis often experience, such as stress, depression, anxiety, self-consciousness, and impaired social functioning. These comorbidities can often affect work productivity, and lead to a higher BMI as well as an increased likelihood of smoking and alcohol use.
A beta version of Kopa for Psoriasis can be downloaded now in the App and Play stores, and is also accessible on the platform’s website. Kopa for Psoriasis also has a social media presence and can be followed on its Facebook and Instagram channels.
