Big Heart Technologies, Inc.

BHT is a California Humanitarian Benefit Corporation (“B” Corp) established to develop an online evidence-based portal to empower communities to improve health, wellness, and vitality by surmounting specific health-related challenges.
These include health literacy, nutrition, obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases, mental depression and burnout. Many of these chronic illnesses are inter-related and/or exist as co-morbidities with one another. The close inter-relationships of these chronic illnesses also involve essential and common behavioral changes. Improvements in health literacy combined with behavior change and ongoing medical care in any one domain can lead to improvements in other domains. The knowledge gained by participants can be transferred to others, building momentum toward a tipping point to transform the health of individuals and the entire community.

Community Health Multiplier Exchange (CHME)

The global portal is called the Community Health Multiplier Exchange or "CHME.”
It includes a Visual Matching Engine (VME) linking all members, curated best practices and intervention programs, secure transactions, HIPAA compliant data collection, and a suite of mobile apps and plugins developed by BHT and its affiliates. The CHME portal is personalized, interactive, and intelligent. It is designed to serve as a personal non-clinical mentor and ally to address general health literacy, nutrition, resilience, diabetes, obesity, Alzheimer's, depression, burnout, substance abuse, and other health conditions that will benefit from behavioral change.

Why is the CHME unique?

  • Automates best practices for evidenced-based medicine, especially around health literacy and behavioral change
  • Incentivizes self-care and paying forward into communities by Success Points
  • Provides transparency and security for all transactions using blockchain technology
  • Systematically generates positive Multiplier Effects across a spectrum of linked illnesses and wellness opportunities
  • Creates a dynamic “center” between healthcare and social care providers
