The Vitality Difference

Our evidence-based approach to wellness works. Built on 20+ years of helping 7 million members worldwide attain better health, we know that wellness isn’t singular. And we are committed to this. We are successful only if you and your members are successful. We align with your interests. This is the crux of our Shared Value approach to health.

Verified Data, Verified Results

Many wellness programs rely solely on self-reported data. Vitality verifies activities and behaviors to ensure you’re getting the real results you want to see.

Vitality integrates not only with hundreds of wearable devices, including Fitbit, Garmin and Apple Watch, but also with biometric screeners and even grocers.

Backed by Science

Using the tenets of behavioral, clinical and actuarial science, Vitality’s results-based program is personalized to address members’ individual health risks.

Making the healthy choice the easy choice

Poor lifestyle behaviors account for 80 percent of the world’s disease burden. Whether it’s a cookie, cocktail or cigarette, the “just one more” mindset can seriously sabotage long-term health goals.

In working with global behavioral science leaders to reduce chronic disease, we’ve found that the key is to make the healthy choice the more rewarding one — with benefits both immediate and ongoing. Vitality offers members instant incentives for making the right choices, and then reinforces these behaviors with tailored engagement, social influence and self-empowerment tools.

Clinical
The cause and effect of daily habits

We’re often too close to our habits to see how strongly they influence our well-being. That’s why personalized context is such a powerful catalyst when it comes to reinforcing healthy behavior.

By estimating the health impact of a member’s lifestyle choices, the clinically and actuarially derived Vitality Age health assessment tool makes it easy to identify problem habits. What’s more, it draws a distinct correlation between daily activities and life expectancy to create a sense of urgency. Vitality’s results-based program then helps members address their individual health risks by tracking and verifying engagement.

Actuarial
Immense data sets that drive real results

Our recommendations aren’t based on guesses or patterned after other programs. They’re effective wellness strategies that are steeped in actuarial evidence.

We have more than 220 million months of global member data, collected throughout the past 20 years. During that time, we’ve also collaborated with trusted healthcare and technology leaders to shape the policies and programs that provide our clients with lasting results. By seamlessly connecting wellness activity with insurance impact, Vitality is able to improve members’ lives while helping to ease the burden of global healthcare costs.

Keep everyone excited about making healthy choices

It’s easy to get everyone fired up at launch, but real results require long-term behavior change — and participation is key. Vitality members engage!

Your selected Vitality Champs will also help drive engagement by acting as program ambassadors within your organization.

Much more than an account manager, your dedicated Wellness Strategy Manager is a true consultative resource you can rely on to help strategize wellness initiatives on a day-to-day basis.

They will provide regular reports and help analyze the results to make sure your program is successful.
