"mHealth is the single most positive shift in healthcare in the last fifty years and Feed.fm is excited to help place the healing powers of music and sound into broader health programs with the launch of Health.fm," said Feed.fm CEO Jeff Yasuda.
"As music has a strong impact on the brain, it can be personalized to drive clinical outcomes," said MedRhythms President Owen McCarthy. "The neuroscience supports the use of music and the components of music as the mechanism of action to drive motor recovery and lasting physiological change. Combine this with the Digital Therapeutics movement, it is the perfect time to harness the neuroscience to mobilize and personalize the delivery of evidence-based therapeutics and we applaud the launch of Health.fm to speed this medical musical movement."
Recovering from an illness, rehabilitating from an injury or beginning a weight reduction or smoking cessation program all share common characteristics and challenges. Health.fm's specific purpose is to increase the benefit, effectiveness and revenue associated with these life-changing programs. Properly curated and synched with program goals, Health.fm's music will help participants to continue with mHealth programs at their most challenging moments. The platform and team of musicologists and music licensing experts combine to remove all the risk and guesswork out of licensing, curating and sharing music for patients.
