MyCuris® has been designed to meet the realities of the new era. The healthcare sector around the world is facing challenges which force it to re-evaluate its operational model in order to adapt to the fast-growing and changing societies. The rapid technological advances, the rising life expectancy, which results to an aging population, the increase of chronic non-communicable diseases (also known as ‘lifestyle diseases’ such as hypertension, diabetes, cardiac diseases), the rising cost of medical services and treatment as well as globalisation ranking are among the most significant features of contemporary societies, which impel the healthcare industry to change. These challenges lead to a shift from a medical model of treating illness to a model of preventing disease and promoting an active and healthy lifestyle.
Curis Network, attentively observing all the new trends and demands in the healthcare sector, has developed MyCuris®, a program designed to meet these challenges. Aiming at contributing to the structure of a new model, which will focus on prevention and provision rather than on disease management, MyCuris® encourages and supports its members to actively develop and maintain healthy habits. Building healthy habits is the most challenging, yet the most significant factor to improve people’s overall well-being. Impermanent actions do not lead to permanent results. Therefore, MyCuris® core philosophy is to educate and actively support individuals to adopt and maintain healthy habits, and its vision is to create healthier future societies.
