January 7, 2022 – Ottawa, Ontario
Enayble Health is pleased to announce an exciting new partnership with IMD Health Global (IMD), a CloudMD Software & Services company focused on digital health education, which will help provide patients with informative physical activity resources via the IMD platform.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with IMD Health to promote our goal of providing culturally competent physical activity resources to providers and their patients. By disseminating our evidence-based and easy to read content, we believe IMD Health can help improve the lives of all patients living with health conditions that can be prevented, controlled or solved by physical activity,” said Naomi Abayomi, Founder and Educator, Enayble Health.
IMD Health is the leading digital patient education platform in Canada, containing content on over 5,600 medical topics (anatomy, conditions, and procedures) in an easy-to-use format. With over 110,000 patient-friendly resources including articles, images, infographics, and videos, IMD provides an interactive platform that allows healthcare practitioners and patients to meaningfully engage with educational health content.
“We are very excited to collaborate with Enayble Health, especially given their focus on cultural competence and health equity,” said Blaise O’Malley, Medical Content Manager, IMD. “Through this partnership, IMD now has many resources that highlight both the importance of physical activity and the impact of social determinants of health on physical health outcomes.”
About Enayble Health
In 2017, 16.4% of Canadian adults met the Physical Activity Guidelines. Unsurprisingly, physical activity declines across income groups, with those in the lowest groups being 33% less likely to be moderately active than those in the highest income group. Enayble Health strives to improve physical health literacy and provide resources and strategies to promote lifelong adherence to physical activity. We aim to identify barriers and inequities underrepresented groups face in their efforts to be physically active and find solution to these barriers by utilizing a network of healthcare learners and providing tools to promote accessible and culturally competent physical activity counselling. Led by a team of medical students, nurses, epidemiologists, health promoters and allied health professionals, Enayble Health integrates unique perspectives within healthcare to ensure that diverse solutions can be brought to the table.
