Once thought of as a rare employee perk, wellness programs and incentivizing tools are almost everywhere, as employers try to take a proactive role in the health of their employees.
Justin Jed leads product vision, experience design, and data-analytics strategies at Limeade. He showed Limeade’s newest wellness program, which includes challenge opportunities, from all angles while playing the role of both employee and employer. The wellness program is tailored for each person and gives suggestions for tasks and information for the user.
Since 2011 Limeade has added a deal with Health Dialog to take its system to more health plans. Henry is probably still equally proud of his short lived European basketball career. Yes, he’s the tall one. Mandy will be joining him onstage to talk about the amazing results they’ve seen, including participation rates of over 90%.
Ever wonder what other employees are doing to keep health costs low while encouraging healthy habits, friendly co-worker competition and more? We’ve brought together a group to discuss the technology behind their wellness program and some will even bring along a client to discuss their experiences.
This panel gives an exposure to six leading edge Health 2.0 companies who are driving new techniques into the health and wellness space. Each presenter only has 3.5 minutes to introduce their product, to give a general overview to some of the breaking-edge technology and ideas that are working to improve general health.
