EAST GREENWICH, R.I., June 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Workplace well-being leader Provant today announced that it has entered into a partnership with Zipongo, a digital nutrition company that makes it easy for people to eat healthfully. Through this relationship, Provant's client members are provided with personalized nutrition plans based on their biometric screening results, nutrition profiles and food preferences, along with savings opportunities tied to their grocery store loyalty cards.
Through this collaboration, Provant client members now have simple-to-use, secure access to Zipongo's platform directly from Provant's health and well-being portal. Zipongo's proprietary platform delivers individualized nutrition plans and recommendations that enable healthy eating at home, at work and at restaurants.
"Recognizing the critical role that eating habits play in an individual's overall well-being, Provant joined forces with Zipongo to offer our client members direct access to the tools and resources to help develop healthy and sustainable eating habits that drive their optimal health," said Heather Provino, CEO of Provant.
Client members interested in being their best selves can sign into their account on Provant's portal, then click on the link for healthy eating, and seamlessly transfer to Zipongo's user-friendly site. Individuals' biometric results obtained through a Provant screening are then safely transmitted via a highly secure data feed and integrated with their responses to Zipongo's dietary survey. The survey covers the individual's health needs, allergies, and preferences. The combined data is analyzed to develop and deliver personalized nutrition recommendations for healthy eating choices, including recipes, meal planning, and discounts at grocery stores.
"As highlighted by Dr. Christopher Murray's Global Burden of Disease project, dietary risks are the top driver of disability globally, and the place where we can best focus our resources to impact health outcomes and savings," said Jason Langheier, CEO of Zipongo. "The combination of biometric screening from a trusted partner like Provant, Zipongo's time-saving and comprehensive nutrition platform personalized to members' lifestyle and health needs, and biometric re-checks, is the combination that can help people avoid or overcome hypertension, hyperlipidemia, obesity and pre-diabetes before needing drugs."
