How it works
Pyx Health uses easy-to-use technology with a human 'hug' and science based activities to deliver timely, meaningful help to reduce loneliness and improve health.
The Pyx Health platform combines compassionate humans and an interactive mobile app – together they solve loneliness and its negative health impacts. Pyx Health is provided by health insurance plans as a benefit to their members at no cost.

Pyx Health is overseen by an independently licensed clinical professional and a Chief Medical Officer. Our platform is backed by science, it is scalable, and it is smart. It connects individuals to the right resources at the right moment, providing support that extends beyond traditional health care settings.
Loneliness is a serious problem that requires a serious solution. It is correlated with health conditions like depression and obesity, and increases a person’s risk of an ER visit – even death. The Pyx Health platform has been independently studied and proven to enhance mental and physical health. We’re changing the landscape of health care, combating loneliness with an innovative combination of science, technology, and human connection. Because no one gets better alone.TM
Our highly trained and certified Compassionate Support Center staff, known as ANDYsTM (short for Authentic, Nurturing, Dependable, Your Friend ) are overseen by a licensed clinician. They help members feel seen, heard, and get connected in real time to health plan and community resources. Members who receive Pyx Health as a health plan benefit get unlimited phone calls for companionship, support and help with resources for their physical, social and mental health needs.

Our engaging mobile app works in tandem with our compassionate human support. Complete with an empathetic chat bot, Pyxir, and easy-to-navigate tools, the Pyx Health app gives members constant access to health resources, interactive activities, and evidence-based screenings and feedback in real-time. Our app offers multiple ways to engage and a simple, easy-to-use interface. Loneliness can make it difficult to reach out and connect not only with loved ones, but health care providers. In app, members can access health plan and community resources, boost self-care, and discover tools to help reduce loneliness and reconnect to community supports. The Pyx Health app is HIPAA compliant and HITRUST certified to ensure member privacy is protected.

With Pyx Health, members have access to an ever-growing collection of tools to support their mental, social, and physical health needs. But what if someone needs a little extra support? What if their loneliness is persistent?
We understand loneliness can be experienced intermittently or chronically. Sometimes individuals need guidance to overcome loneliness. For this reason, Pyx Health has designed a program that is proven to significantly reduce loneliness upon completion.
For people experiencing persistent or chronic loneliness, our eight-week Thrive PathwayTM program helps further support with a guided series of science-backed activities and support from our staff. It’s a highly effective, whole-person approach rooted in positive psychology.

- Pyx Health-initiated, evidence-based screenings capture emotional and general health status changes
- Scheduled interventions/check-ins by a dedicated ANDY
- Science-backed activities promote positive self-care and provide uplifting companionship
- Proven improvement for even the most intense and persistent loneliness
