The Novo Nordisk and Zur Rose Group collaboration presents DocMorris Adipositas Care, a digital hub which provides people living with obesity a new way to find the right care. Adipositas Care thoughtfully empowers people living with obesity by enabling them to learn about obesity and discover possible care solutions, to link to specialized advisors, doctors and digital solutions in obesity care, and by supporting them with the testimonials of peers who took action to better manage their health, all within one digital location. The program launches today in Germany with the intention to expand across other European markets.

(Berlin, Germany): – In January, Zur Rose Group announced its partnership with Novo Nordisk to raise awareness of obesity and to improve access to the right information, diagnosis and care for people living with this condition. Obesity (BMI >30) is a disease that affects a quarter of the adult German population (23% of men and 24% of women)1, a segment of the population at increased risk for many other serious diseases and health conditions like diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and musculoskeletal disorders2. To reduce the risk of health complications and improve their quality of life, people living with obesity share a need to reduce their weight, address the mental health implications of the disease and cope with the social stigmas associated to their condition. Today, the collaboration starts with the new web-based health experience and individual-relevant Hub: Adipositas Care supported by an insights-based obesity awareness campaign for people living with obesity.

“Thanks to our collaboration with Novo Nordisk, today marks the beginning of a new era for people living with obesity” says Betül Susamis Unaran, Chief Strategy and Digital Officer of the Zur Rose Group. “The new obesity health journey empowers people living with the condition by bringing forward a new way for them to access best possible care solutions, enabling them to get informed about their disease and linking them to online and offline specialized doctors and advisors in obesity care. The launch of this new health experience is a critical step in bringing Zur Rose Group’s ecosystem vision to life: in creating a world where everyone can manage their health in one click.”
