Online Scenario Tool

Do you also want to better exploit the potential of your Alpine destination in nature-based health tourism?

Within the Interreg Alpine Space project HEALPS², we developed a tool that helps destination managers to analyze and optimize the health tourism potential of their region with regard to evidence-based products.

The Scenario Tool is based on the idea of using current scientific knowledge about the health effects of natural resources (evidence) as the main target parameters for the development of appropriate health offers. Currently, the following seven indications are part of the Scenario Tool:

1 Allergies
2 Overweight
3 Lack of Fitness
4 Back pain
5 Respiratory diseases
6 Cardiovascular diseases
7 Stress and Burnout

How it works

Bergwandern im Hochkönigebiet

Step 1

Fill in an online survey on health tourism

In order to provide you with an optimal analysis and added value, specific questions are asked about your destination. These include, for example: existing Alpine natural health resources, number of overnight stays, existing infrastructure and offers such as physiotherapy or guided hikes. Please also provide relevant key factors such as cross-sector collaboration and accessibility.



Step 2

Our algorithm will process the answers.

The tool uses a database with the knowledge of medical studies on the effect of natural Alpine health resources and it´s touristic usage in terms of prevention, therapy and rehabilitation. Our algorithm processes and compares these different information streams with your answers in the survey. The tool then identifies and evaluates the unique selling points for your destination.

Step 3

Receive a report with your results and recommendations.

After an evaluation phase of around two days, we will send you a report via e-mail. In the report you will find the outcomes and recommendations for your Alpine health tourism destination. The report gives you advice for the use of local natural health resources and the improvement of health services in relation to suitable indication-based target groups. You will also receive a visual representation of the results.

Step 4

Develop your own tailored nature-based health offers.

With the tailord information on your destination, you can better exploit the potential of your resources in the form of innovative and target-group-specific offers in the future. To do this, you can either start your own development process or take the next steps with the help of the community. At the end of the report, you will find further information on the various development paths, specific contacts and possible funding opportunities.
