Vitality Group, a global health and wellness company committed to making people healthier, has partnered with 5 new companies to expand its behavior change platform. The partners are Health Enhancement Systems, Livongo, MoveSpring, Omada Health, and SmartDollar.

“Due to the success of the Gateway program in driving member engagement and health activities, we’re expanding the program for 2019,” said Tal Gilbert, Vitality USA CEO. “In its first year, two-thirds of Vitality clients completed Gateway activities and more importantly, members with an elevated risk factor were 20-25% more likely to participate in relevant Gateway events. By bringing on these additional best-in-class providers, we will go deeper into the clinical setting to support people with chronic conditions.”

As part of the Vitality program, employees receive personalized and dynamic health recommendations and resources specific to their needs in a way that meets them where they are while also providing employers the opportunity to amplify their own benefits and programs. These offerings are supported by Vitality’s proven expertise in behavioral science and incentive strategies to help employees overcome common decision errors, says a press release.

“When employees come to work, they bring their financial problems with them,” said Brian Hamilton, Vice President of SmartDollar. “That stress is real, and it effects productivity, turnover, and healthcare costs. We’re thrilled to team with Vitality Group to reach people who need a proven, step-by-step plan so that they can stop living paycheck-to-paycheck and start saving for their future.”

Vitality blends smart tech, data, incentives, and behavioral science, to inspire healthy changes in individuals and organizations. The company brings a global perspective through successful partnerships with the smartest insurers and most forward-thinking employers around the world. More than 9 million people in 20 countries engage in the Vitality program.
