His goal is to ‘use modern technology to restore ancient wisdom’ by creating a ‘behavioral symphony of wellness”. He focuses on the convergence of multiple exponential technologies to solve pressing issues in healthcare at scale, using the approach of a multi-platform ecosystem, aka “Plecosystem” approach. He has advocated the implementation and use of a “motivational formulary” to help motivate individuals towards their own goals using their personal values as a critical element of personalized medicine.
