The National Psoriasis Foundation (NPF) and Happify Health announce a new partnership to improve the lives of those living with psoriatic disease.

Kopa is Happify Health’s patient-centric health platform, aimed at improving patient health outcomes through education, peer-to-peer connection, HCP expertise, and mental health support. Kopa is available in the App Store, Google Play, and on the web.

Happify Health launched the first Kopa community in July 2020 to support people with psoriasis. The Kopa platform brings healthcare professionals together with Happify Health high-quality digital therapeutics in a single, secure, online community where people can learn, share, and support each other in an equitable environment, a media release from Happify Health explains.

Information and Support

“With Kopa, we’ve combined chronic disease support services, healthcare professionals, and clinical-grade digital therapies to deliver personalized, digital healthcare.

“Within Kopa, people dealing with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis are supported by healthcare providers, mental health experts, dietitians, and other medical professionals so they can ask questions, access digital therapies and other resources, and develop meaningful connections with others living with psoriasis.”

— Keren Zimmerman, Chief Product Officer at Happify Health

“Partnering with Happify Health gives us a unique and modern way to support our large and diverse community in a safe digital environment.

“Since people with psoriasis are at an increased risk of developing other health conditions, such as anxiety and depression, the tools available on Kopa enhance the support options available to this community. Not only does Kopa give those with psoriatic disease a place to share and connect, but it also offers digital tools, including a daily stress tracker and guided meditations, that our community will find helpful in managing their disease.”

— Randy Beranek, President and CEO of NPF

Open the Door

Through this partnership, NPF and Happify will open the door to new tools for individuals living with psoriatic disease seeking to improve health outcomes. Kopa provides member resources and tools in a single digital platform to curate a journey toward a healthier, happier life. Individuals looking for one-on-one assistance can also contact the NPF Patient Navigation Center via text, email, or phone, to supplement tools available through Kopa, the release continues.
