Life improvement solutions Medycus combines health knowledge and technology to create tools that change the way in which we promote wellness and a healthy lifestyle.
Today, most attempts to improve wellness are based on long term measurements and enjoy limited success. Existing digital tools are retrospective and predominantly benefit users with high discipline and self-motivation while failing to impact the average individual at the decision point because most people lack guidance, motivation, and require incentives to impact their behavior.
Medycus is taking a different approach to preventive healthcare
Our technology uses gamification, changing goals and rewards, machine learning of user’s specific pitfalls, effective incentives and ‘addictive’ strategies to gradually condition users for healthy habits.
Hacking the decision making process
Our app intervenes at the right time and place with personalized, situationally appropriate content and recommendations to affect healthy decisions. For each user, Vitalyst identifies situations, opportunities and challenges to induce healthy user behavior in real time.
For each user, Vitalyst identifies situations, opportunities and challenges to induce healthy user behavior in real time.
Calls to action, challenges, quizzes, recommendations, health tips, community content, and all other customizable subject matter within Vitalyst is localized and personalized to be appropriate for its target cultures, gender, languages, state of health, demographics and age.
Gamification and other community support strategies enable individuals to feel empowered by real and virtual communities of their peers, with friendly competitions and prizes awarded for adherence to the wellness/health regime prescribed and customized by the Vitalyst program sponsor. All of this happens in real-time, while requiring minimal input from users, leveraging our patented technology.
COVID-19 prevention initiative
Vitalyst was recently enhanced with COVID-19-related features to help smartphone users avoid exposure while benefitting from localised information about establishments in their area (opening hours, queue wait times, and more). Together with its wellness functionality, Vitalyst can help people from all communities get healthier, keep in touch with medical and other community support frameworks, and avoid COVID-19 risks.

Medycus was founded in 2018 with the vision of transforming the way in which technology affects lifestyle and improves wellbeing for the general public.
Our team gained years of experience and built up the expertise to develop solutions and technological products designed to improve peoples’ wellbeing.
As Executive Medical Director of Southern California Kaiser, one of the Medycus founders, Dr. Jeffrey Weisz has implemented programs to improve Patient health by aligning and integrating patient education, physician training, hospital management, and information technology. Dr. Weisz also took over Kaiser Northwest, transforming it in two years to the highest quality medical system out of all of Kaiser regions and medical centers.
