Sidekick was founded by two medical doctors who had worked for years treating tens of thousands of patients with lifestyle-related illnesses. A staggering 68% of all deaths are due to lifestyle-related illnesses and the two cofounders realized that a new approach was needed to prevent and manage chronic illnesses. The company operates a patient-centric, digital care platform — delivering industry-leading retention and clinically proven strong impact on health outcomes, ranging from weight and blood glucose to quality of life and medication adherence. The Sidekick platform combines an evidence-based clinical approach with behavioral economics and gamification to help global customers expand therapy reach. It is CEmarked as a Class I Medical Device and is scalable to over 40 distinct chronic diseases, 13 of which are live in 2020. Sidekick’s platform has also been adopted to remotely triage and support people in home isolation, diagnosed with COVID-19. In addition to supporting COVID-19 patients, the remote patient monitoring solution of the wider Sidekick platform is now being used in Europe and the US, to support patients with other conditions.
