Digital health company incentaHEALTH has announced a partnership with VOSS Automotive to provide incentaHEALTH’s technology-based wellness program to employees and dependents. VOSS is a global supplier of innovative line and connection technology for vehicle systems with headquarters in Fort Wayne, IN. In an effort to encourage a healthy work environment, employees will have access to the incentaHEALTH weight management program with the potential to earn cash rewards for achieving a healthy weight.
The evidence-based incentaHEALTH program is designed to help organizations reduce their health care costs and provide a turn-key solution for reversing the rise of obesity and chronic health conditions. Through daily app, email and web-based support, individuals are provided all the tools for better health with exercise plans with videos and guides, 6 daily meal ideas from a registered dietitian, access to coaches for support, a library of guided meditations and more. Progress is tracked through incentaHEALTH’s patented HEALTHspot® kiosk or Smart Scale which tracks weight, BMI and snaps a Healthy Selfie photograph of every health screening so the employee can see their progress visually as they improve their health. Cash incentives are provided for weight loss and maintenance every 90 days. The results include high participation rates, durable behavior change and sustained weight loss.
“In our post-pandemic world employers are looking for opportunities to help employees engage in their health whether they’re working in-person, remote or in a hybrid approach,” said Lia Kleppe, Director of Partnerships and Development. “Our whole health platform not only helps employees lose weight, it fosters the development of healthy habits physically and mentally through the support of daily health coaching, guided mindfulness, access to live health coaches and more.”
Corporate wellness programs have been shown to reduce company health care costs, increase employee productivity, decrease absenteeism, reduce someone’s risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease, and eliminate the need for certain medications. A study of over 30,000 incentaHEALTH members published in Preventive Medicine found a 16:1 ROI based on the reduction of five chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke.
A study published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine found 71% of engaged participants in incentaHEALTH’s weight management program to have reduced their BMI, with 34% of those participants achieving a 5% or greater weight loss. These results were sustained for an average duration of 1.7 years.
