CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Wellness and rewards program HumanaVitality® has released its first mobile application, providing a new wellness tool to the increasing number of members using smartphones to manage their health and fitness progress. The app offers an easy-to-use custom dashboard that allows members with employer-sponsored insurance plans to create and track personal wellness goals and milestones.
“As a health and well-being partner for our more than three million members, we always look for new paths to healthier lifestyles,” said HumanaVitality CEO Joe Woods. “Today we’re launching another option by bringing our personalized program to the palm of members’ hands with the HumanaVitality Mobile App.”
The unique mobile platform allows users to:
- Customize their wellness journey by setting individual short-term milestones
- Reach personal health goals by tracking activity across multiple fitness devices
- Receive advice and support from health coaches via phone
- Stay motivated by participating in challenges with other users
- Earn Vitality Points™ to redeem at the HumanaVitality Mall for movie tickets, music downloads and more
“Development of the HumanaVitality Mobile App was a collaborative effort across the Humana enterprise, which allowed for rapid development and distribution,” said Kristine Mullen, Humana’s Vice President, Wellness Strategies and Solutions, and the app development team’s leader. “It’s a strong indicator of Humana’s efforts to close the gap between health and care.”
To get started, members select a health journey that is specific to their wellness goals, such as get active, eat better, lose weight or reduce stress. Using measurable data and health assessment results, HumanaVitality then provides the tools and advice for members to begin their personalized pathway to well-being.
