The healthies platform is a comprehensive, quantifiable, nutrient tracking system that extrinsically & intrinsically incentivizes healthier food consumption.
Our diet is the single most important preventive measure we can take to reduce chronic ailments like hypertension, diabetes and obesity. “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
Health insurance providers are keenly aware of that fact and offer health & wellness programs to help reduce policy costs for employers’ full-time employees.
Some of the benefits include:
There are also federal programs (USDA SNAP, WIC, TANF & Medicaid) that help improve food accessibility for lower socio-economic beneficiaries. A USDA SNAP pilot study revealed that when beneficiaries received monetary incentives of $.30 for every dollar spent, they improved their whole foods consumption of fresh fruits & vegetables by more than 25%. Higher incentives like “double dollars” from Wholesome Wave show even greater whole food consumption.
SNAP, WIC, TANF and Medicaid beneficiaries receive financial incentives for all foods consumed over an established nutritional value. The rewards can be redeemed to purchase local, organic fruits and vegetables from farms, farmer’s markets, CSAs and participating retailers.
The healthies platform provides reports with visualized metrics of personal data for individuals who have opted into the program and aggregated data to employers, insurance companies, participating vendors and governmental agencies.
Primary funding comes from existing programs’ revenue streams and is subtly redirected to improve overall personal, ecological, socio-cultural and economic health for all stakeholders.
