In our collaboration with doctors and other healthcare providers, we have seen that promoting a healthy lifestyle is becoming increasingly important. In most cases, preventing complaints is more pleasant and effective than curing them. Therefore, healthcare providers try to talk to clients about healthy behavior as early as possible. We see in practice that it is often difficult to initiate this conversation. Patients and clients expect that the healthcare professional's role is to solve their problems – not to lecture them. Most healthcare providers do not enjoy 'pointing fingers' and look for more positive ways to engage in conversation.
Tinytask is an excellent tool for this purpose. For clients, it is a small gift with which they can get started right away. Instead of a lot of information, they receive fun, daily tasks. Moreover, healthcare providers can still discuss lifestyle changes during and after the program by asking clients about their experiences with Tinytask.
