BERLIN – Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont is offering its group customers new wellness options by launching an online wellness center called My Blue Health Wellness Center.
BCBSVT developed the new website service in partnership with another Vermont company — PureWellness Inc. of South Burlington — whose Enterprise Health & Wellness Solution allows organizations to create, administer and manage all wellness initiatives.
The new online wellness center offers a personalized approach to engage and motivate employees by combining best-in-class interactive tools and resources with an interactive platform to empower and motivate employees to take charge of their health.
Other features of the new online wellness center include targeted behavioral change programs for each employee that highlight areas based on their specific areas of risk or personal health goals. Employees accessing the website will find a personalized dashboard within the wellness center that includes many useful tools such as a health log to track biometric data, wellness workshops, nutrition tools such as recipe assistance and meal plans and exercise trackers. Downloadable mobile applications allow users to choose from 16 activities, while tracking distance, speed and calories burned. All data is auto-synched into the user’s platform.
Employers will be able to create custom worksite wellness programs to meet the unique needs of their organization, including an event scheduler to help promote their events, classes, and screenings. They can also easily measure program success and outcome improvements through access to over 70 real-time, quantifiable reports – demonstrating a healthier return on investment.MORE IN National / World BusinessNEW YORK — Natural gas, the nation’s most prevalent heating fuel, is getting cheaper just as...
