Why We Stand Out
The conventional health & wellness model is misguided because it seeks to motivate change by selling into existing biases and allowing participants to define their wellness priorities based on those biases. That strategy merely perpetuates those deeply ingrained, but misguided notions. A common bias is the notion that sleep is necessary for rest and recovery, but rest and recovery are expendable or can be deferred when productivity is on the line. That is patently false, not because rest and recovery should be forced, but because sleep is not rest and recovery. Sleep is an active orchestration of necessary processes that must occur, otherwise basic metabolic and mental dysfunctions will arise. Another bias is that nutrition-and-exercise consist of two ends of the caloric energy budget for weight loss. In the conventional view, nutrition is to reduce calorie consumption and exercise is to increase calorie burning— each side addressed only to weight loss. That too, is patently false. Nutrition is the flexible metabolic alterations that the body makes under specific conditions for specific nutrients. Those nutrient-use specifics are what DRIVE the weight-maintenance challenges that we all face. Physical activity is not merely a weight loss tactic but a crucial output that many physiological processes anticipate, including metabolic and mental processes. You don't have to be an elite athlete to feel the widespread benefits of exercise. (If you are, however, you'll want to check out the facts presented on the TriNourish Learning platform. Test drive the platform from the member links at the bottom of this page).
FAQ: — Who is the target market for the TriNourish platform tandem?
In some cases, the member platforms are designed to be a turn-key self running solution for human resource departments interested in providing additional safety & wellness education for their employees. For example, fatigue risk management requires a systematic emphasis on common sleep disorders and poor sleep quality, particularly for the transportation industry, emergency responders, and the nation's shift workers. It is important to keep end-users anonymous because workers in general may be reluctant to answer screening initiatives honestly if they feel that their employment is at risk. Employee benefits and employer communication strategies must discover consistent ways to take that resistance into consideration and implement effective communication strategies.
In other cases, a broader perspective is required while specialty interests are being serviced. This includes modern fitness facilities, athletic institutions, and health management programs. Today's facilities are not simply old-fashioned gyms. They are more akin to indoor villages offering a diverse array of traditional and boutique fitness solutions. Forward thinking facilities seek to use their credentialed staff to bridge the gap between a preventative, healthy lifestyle and collaboration with clinical specialists to encourage the responsible introduction of exercise. The fitness industry as a whole has been lobbying to fill that wellness gap for years. Corrective exercise techniques, age-specific expertise and integrated health management are all components to that initiative.
FAQ: — What encourages participants to utilize their member platforms?
We place a premium on pointing out the common misconceptions that relate to lifestyle choices so that we may initially pique the interest of participants. Our goal is to encourage end-users to delve into the content a little bit at a time. Our assessments present questions based on participant’s previous answers, but they also inform users along the way. This ensures that basic screening is accomplished very rapidly while baseline grade scores provide additional incentive to investigate the learning & follow-up resources. None of this is possible without first driving members to the member platforms. We work with our clients to custom tailor in-house marketing materials and strategies. A constant stream of new information about the surprising role of sleep and circadian rhythm for performance assists these efforts. The assessment process works very well for new member orientation or value-added services. A broader range of fee-based consultation services also become possible.
FAQ: — Are the prices negotiable?
We advise that you generate an Instant Quote to determine basic monthly fees and one-time custom set up charges. The set-up fees will be smaller than the quotes presented if all set-up options are not required (See Quote). In addition, we will work with small businesses to develop an affordable plan.
FAQ: — Can individuals purchase access to the platforms?
Yes. See Instant Quote for pricing.
FAQ: — Why wouldn't users just use their trackers and widely available apps?
Studies have shown that trackers and apps are not reliable when the information is not contextualized. Without a proper background, they simply amplify our existing biases. The whole point of the TriNourish project is to address the reflexive misconceptions about sleep, nutrition and exercise that we carry. It is those seemingly self-evident notions that radically impede our health & performance. With that context, trackers and apps become more valuable.
FAQ: — Are the platforms secure?
The main infrastructure of our core assessment components are hosted by Amazon Web Services with server back-up distributed across multiple sites. They are compliant with security and privacy standards, including Privacy Shield, and are fault-tolerant due to redundancy. Data that is entered into our custom assess-and-educate gateway are encrypted and secured at multiple levels, including transmission and submission. Merchant submissions comply with the Payment Card Industry’s Data Security Standards (PCI DSS 3.2) and can therefore process credit card information securely.
FAQ: — Do they meet HIPAA compliancy?
A large part of HIPAA compliancy entails an emphasis on policy and procedure protocols. In effect, the weakest link in the security chain is not the technology of collecting and transmitting information, but the handling of that information once it has been received. Because we cannot control strict adherence to safe procedures at the physical site of our clients, and because end-users are increasingly uncomfortable with transmitting identifiable information related to their personal health or lifestyle, we have intentionally structured our self-directed learning pathways to keep users anonymous. We believe that this will provide a much greater opportunity for user participation.
FAQ: — OK, but what if I want to use it in a clinical environment?
Entities may customize their platforms to identify candidate responses for additional fee-based consultation offerings, however, end-users remain anonymous with the resources that we provide. Patient intake forms may be used as a gateway to the TriNourish platforms and we will work with clinical entities to develop a seamless solution, however TriNourish is a non-clinical entity and does not provide HIPAA compliant platforms to integrate end-user responses with existing medical records or electronic health record platforms. Again, our view is that much greater participation is fostered when participants do not feel like patients and thereby investigate the resources out of a natural budding interest. Internal marketing is crucial for developing that interest.
FAQ: — How do I collaborate with other experts in the triad?
TriNourish platforms are designed to be self-running as much as possible, including providing information and resources with follow-up for the three lifestyle components of sleep, nutrition and exercise. However, credentialed nutritionists, trainers, coaches, and other lifestyle experts may utilize the TriNourish model to secure robust relations with complementary professionals through a common TriNourish platform node. This is accomplished by customizing your platforms to include local professional collaboration for follow-up. We'll help. The collaboration-fostering capacity of the integrated content is therefore a natural value-added scaffolding to build cross discipline professional networks.

HOW? Your facility, institution or business pays for a one time only set-up fee. After that, there are only hosting fees for the secure, self guided platforms. We'll customize or even private label a version of the lifestyle benefits tandem to your brand & identity, and we'll assist you with messaging and marketing materials. The Nourish Sleep and TriNourish Learning platforms are self directed, but you have the option of training your staff on the information pathways and content so that you may offer follow up solution sets for a fee. Setup charges and monthly fees are based on the number of employees or members that you grant platform benefits to. Start with an Instant Quote below.
