The MyGo2Support program
The MyGo2Support program is a unique health management and psychosocial support platform for people with cancer, survivors, caregivers, family members, and educators in the community that integrates Care Messages and GoMo Chat. The program is a membership model and delivers regular, personalized content based on the person’s unique needs. Available content and resources delivered to participants of the program are tailored to the circumstances that they are dealing with as it pertains to cancer. Message tracks consider the participant’s relation to cancer as well as their age and stage of cancer, including:
People with cancer that have school-aged children (under the age of 19)
Parents of children diagnosed
Loved ones bereaving the loss of someone to cancer
People with cancer that are now in remission (survivors)
Participants can also text in a variety of pre-determined keywords to receive support in the participant’s moment of need. These keywords include:
COPE: Prompts the How Are You Doing? survey
SONG: Prompts a link to an uplifting song to listen to
MINDFUL: Prompts a message with an activity or supportive resource focusing on mindfulness and relaxation
SHARE: Allows a participant to anonymously share their story with other members
How Are You Doing? survey assesses participants’ wellbeing
Participants enrolled in the MyGo2Support program receive weekly surveys that are designed to evaluate their wellbeing. The How Are You Doing? survey will ask a participant to rate their level of difficulty experienced with coping. The How Are You Doing? survey includes screening for depression, utilizing the PHQ-2 and PHQ-9 screeners. Depending on the responses received, an escalation process may be triggered to the Crossroads4Hope team to follow up on the issues identified.
GoMo Chat creates a direct line of communication with Crossroads4Hope staff
Through GoMo Chat, MyGo2Support participants can chat directly with Crossroads4Hope staff through a secure chat platform. Messages are secure and pin-protected, and there is no app to download in order for participants to use the tool.
Acquisition management and support
In addition to the MyGo2Support program, GoMo Health has created an acquisition management and support segment which engages new users who register online prior to sessions, in order to increase attendance and encourage new participants to return for more services. This helps to streamline the overall customer relationship management and closes any gaps between key communication and drop-off points.
GoMo Health leveraged its proprietary emerging science, BehavioralRx, the science of precision health, to build these programs and determine the engagement strategy, approach, and content delivered.
