About BHT
Albert Einstein once famously observed: “We can't solve problems by the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”
A transformation in how we feel, think, and transact with one another – more specifically, a new collaborative model that releases the combined creative power of the heart and mind working together – is desperately needed to meet the deepening problems of the early 21st century. Big Heart Technologies has developed the essential framework, methods, and tools to meet these challenges. We call this new field, “Big Heart Intelligence (BHI).”
With adequate funding BHT will launch the Community Health Multiplier Exchange (CHME) Portal with a suite of apps based on BHI and curated best practices and programs developed by both medical and social providers to engage millions community members to improve their health and vitality, beginning with a focus on Integral Resilience™.
