Vitality Group research of more than 300,000 participants demonstrated that wellness programs incorporating positive incentives can lead to behavior change, which over time will result in lower healthcare expenditures. According to the findings, wellness programs caused the number of participants who used a gym one or more times a week to increase 23 percent, while the number of those individuals who joined a gym, but were “inactive” decreased by 8 percent. Vitality is a comprehensive health and wellness solution that educates, assists and motivates individuals to engage in a broad set of verified activities with proven outcomes.
