Melon is a mobile and web wellness platform that helps people with long term conditions better understand and manage their health.
The program combines peer support, health coaching, tracking and behaviour change tools to build daily habits that result in positive health outcomes.
At the end of the program, participants transition to maintenance mode where they continue to receive ongoing support, information and encouragement.
Melon was initially delivered as a pilot in partnership with Pinnacle Midlands Health Network for people with prediabetes. The results of the pilot showed 78% of participants no longer had prediabetes at the end of the program and concluded that Melon is a cost-effective intervention that increases self-efficacy and health literacy.
