DALLAS, March 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Viverae®, a leader in workplace wellness, is proud to announce its latest major updates to its proprietary platform, MyViverae®. This industry-leading application will introduce features that bolster a personalized wellness experience using real-time metrics. The latest features include instant access to tracking health ages and other biometric data, structured challenges that reward notable progress, and the integration of the reputable fitness and nutrition app MyFitnessPal®. These enhancements support Viverae's first-to-market ideal engagement methodology, a unique approach that fosters ideal engagement and enables members to dynamically track their personal progress through intrinsic motivation.
The Health Tracker
Members will have access to a new feature called the Health Tracker, which keeps them connected to their biometric data throughout each program year. In addition to automatic updates from applicable, synced devices and apps, members will be able to self-report and track a personal set of values such as blood pressure and cholesterol. Members will be able to gauge baseline metrics and compare them as frequently as they have updates.
Members will also have the ability to create tiered challenges, which reward members as they reach new activity levels through social support and incentives. The experts at Viverae know that rewards and activity levels motivate employees, which in turn develop longer lasting habits. The more members set personal health goals that are supported by their respective colleagues and earn rewards based on achievement, the more likely they will improve personal health outcomes.
Included in the update is the seamless integration of MyFitnessPal, the widely popular calorie counter and diet plan app. Members will be able to track calorie intake and record weight through their own personal food diary and diet profile—adding more custom data to paint a more comprehensive health picture.
"These features bring immense value and will offer members a meaningful experience because they include things that matter to them," said Mike Lamb, president and chief executive officer at Viverae. "All of these enhancements drive to our goal of empowering members by providing them with the tools and motivation to take charge of their health."
