The 20th Annual IMPACT Summit kicked off its two-day run on Tuesday October 22 in Philadelphia, celebrating two decades of successfully creating opportunities for early-stage companies and investors to network and establish lasting and profitable partnerships. Healthper, one of the featured companies invited to present and demonstrate its unique health and wellness technology platform, was on hand to discuss their ability to help solve the nation’s poor health and ever-increasing rise in healthcare costs.
“While the employee or member sees the program as a perk and the incentives as gravy, the ‘C-Suite’ views wellness as part of the solution to lower healthcare costs and drive productivity,” said David Lenihan. He continued, “Creating programs that are sticky and actively engage individual participants is the challenge for nearly everyone. We employ science to drive each participant’s journey and provide comprehensive, real-time reporting to demonstrate outcomes to sponsoring organizations.” Healthper’s unique platform approach overcomes problems common to standard wellness program offerings by providing a robust unified portal to participants and comprehensive reporting for sponsors.
In a recent online study, data showed that health and fitness apps still have low adoption rates when compared with apps in other categories, further demonstrating the opportunity to improve participation and positive outcomes in workplace wellness. Many people are still unconcerned about health and well-being and have not yet implemented a fitness and healthy lifestyle routine. By employing gamification, social networking, and mobile strategies, Healthper provides both the routine that encourages wellness and lifestyle changes and the mode to deliver the program and achieve successful results.
