About incentaHEALTH

incentaHEALTH is a digital health platform that uses behavioral economics to encourage individuals to adopt new habits around healthy eating and active living. The HEALTHspot® scale (U.S. Patent No. 7541547) simultaneously measures each member’s weight while recording a full-length digital photo to track visually-authenticated improvements in body weight and BMI.  This “Healthy Selfie” creates an industry-first visual health screening that is enthusiastically embraced by our members, with ⅓ of participants achieving a 5% BMI reduction sustained over multiple years.  The platform delivers personalized coaching 365 days a year via app, email and SMS. Members receive cash rewards every 90 days for returning to the HEALTHspot® scale to track their results. This remote patient monitoring system securely transmits health screening data to each client’s analytics dashboard to display live performance results for the entire population.
