Digital Health Insurance & Wearable Corporate Wellness
We thought we'd give you a quick update on where the Boundlss digital health platform is at. We're just wrapping up our first pilot with one of Australia's largest health insurance providers, and are in the second month of a digital corporate wellness program with one of Australia's largest home care providers.
The health insurer used our API as part of a digital training program for an upcoming marathon. Participants used Boundlss to connect their wearables to the fitness app and received incentives when they hit 10,000 steps each day. The program was popular with roughly 10% of participants on the run using the training app in the months leading up to the run and approximately a third of those regularly synced data each day. For the insurer it provided a way for them to understand their members and potential members daily activity and health in an unprecedented way, as well as engage and assist in their healthy behaviour in a way thats normally fairly uncommon for a traditional insurer.
Our first corporate wellness program kicked off a month or so ago with 200 test pilots. Participants downloaded one of four recommended mobile health apps, connected them up to boundlss and shared data with their colleagues (if they wanted). The first month of the program is to get a baseline on normal physical activity levels - including walking, running, sleep, weight and nutrition. After this stage is over we'll be rolling out three different health & wellness programs designed in partnership with the in-house wellness team. The programs will cover different activity levels and include mobile recommendations and incentives to all the participants.
We'll keep you updated on this and hopefully give you an insight into some of the behaviour trends and changes we're lucky enough to facilitate.
