Pyx Health, a tech-enabled services company that provides health plans and their members an innovative, scalable solution that effectively addresses the nation’s loneliness epidemic, was named a finalist in the health category of Fast Company’s 2023 World Changing Ideas Awards, which honors innovations that save lives, extend longevity, or increase access to care.
Pyx Health is the first proven solution to reduce loneliness and mitigate its negative physical and mental health effects. The company recently launched THRIVE Pathway, a groundbreaking program specifically designed to address chronic loneliness using best-practice therapeutic interventions. THRIVE alleviates persistent loneliness by targeting thoughts and behaviors associated with perceived social isolation, and helping to develop the skills needed to understand and independently develop lasting social connections.
“Loneliness is a crisis of epidemic proportions and our society has only begun to proactively tackle this problem,” said Cindy Jordan, Founder and CEO of Pyx Health. “I know the gravity of this issue first hand because in 2021 I lost my daughter to loneliness. She inspires the mission of Pyx Health, the only solution proven to address loneliness at scale through the combination of compassionate human intervention and evidence-based programming, ultimately improving lives and reducing the massive costs to our health care system.”
