The Impact of Loneliness and Lack of Supportive Community
The steady deterioration in the quality and helpfulness of peer-to-peer connections offered by traditional social networks have resulted in a lonelier, arguably more disconnected world, especially for people facing significant life events and chronic conditions where support is desired and sought out. Nevertheless, technology advancements and rising tech-savviness across all age groups present a unique opportunity to leverage the power of a supportive community, as well as to offer a community-driven intervention that will measure and improve key outcomes, including medical costs, member experience, and overall health. Done well, peer support can and will lower loneliness and isolation, improve health, reduce medical costs, benefit underserved populations – and most importantly – do all that at scale.
