PORTLAND, Ore., July 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Traditional health assessment tools often take nearly 30 minutes to complete, and have no immediate impact or action to encourage healthier behaviors. hubbub health, a technology-driven wellness solution, has re-invented the tool, in a quick, easy and relatable format. The hubbub360 uses employees' answers to 11 health-related questions to immediately recommend two relevant challenges that people can join in an instant – taking only five minutes.
hubbub's challenges can help people achieve a full spectrum of health-related goals, encouraging employees to move more, nourish their bodies, balance life, interact and get inspiration from others, and stress less. hubbub360 offers employers all the benefits of the traditional health assessment, but with even more relevant data. Employers are able to see at a glance, what their unique workforce may need help with, allowing them to focus their wellness program efforts appropriately. They can even use the results to create custom challenges for their team.
"Tedious and lengthy health assessments aren't necessary to get a true snapshot of someone's wellness state, and on the back end there needs to be an action to drive someone to better health," said hubbub Director of Business Development Brian Berchtold. "hubbub allows users to interact directly with their own personal community, and the company they keep in their off hours to make better health care choices."
The hubbub team has conducted significant research in the behavioral studies by Stanford University's B.J. Fogg and Dr. Abraham Maslow, as well as by Harvard's Nicholas Christakis and Dr. James Fowler of the University of California, and realized it was the approach to corporate wellness that was wrong.
