About

What We Do

By combining best practices from health science and social science, Healthiby has created an incentive system that motivates, challenges and supports people who want to achieve measurable health outcomes.

We are a wellness rewards solution that tracks, gamifies and rewards participants’ progress on their health and wellness journeys, while providing the education to change habits and social accountability to stay engaged.

Participants who have conditions like prediabetes, Type 2 diabetes, hypertension or high blood cholesterol accrue HealthiBucks and HealthiCents by achieving their Mini-Goals, taking HealthiActions or being a good teammate. When HealthiLife biometrics improve, participants are eligible for a Progress Payout and/or Reversal Reward.

Mission | Vision | Values

  

Purpose Driven

Healthiby aims to reverse the rising trend of preventable chronic conditions, including prediabetes, Type 2 diabetes, hypertension, high blood cholesterol and obesity.

Through our innovative wellness rewards solution, we are providing incentives, knowledge and support to help people achieve sustainable lifestyle changes while having fun.

Starting Locally, Thinking Globally

 

In the near-term, we are forming Healthiby teams that are:

(1) Empowered to change habits gradually, through Healthiby tools, information and support

(2) Motivated by financial rewards and team accountability

(3) Successful in achieving and maintaining their health goals.

In the long-term, we envision Healthiby becoming an integral part of lifelong wellness journeys and a platform for investing in personal health.

What We Value 

Rewards that Matter

We value measurable health improvements and believe people should be rewarded for making progress towards better health outcomes.

Healthiby rewards pay-out only when you make meaningful progress on your health outcomes because we believe financial benefits should align with health benefits, in both the short- and long-term.

Empowerment

During Healthiby’s program, we aim to empower participants to adopt behaviors and engage in activities that facilitate success on their wellness journeys.

Fun & Openness

Wellness journeys can be enjoyable, socialable and fun. While there’s effort and commitment involved, trying new and creative ways of eating or exercising is fun and rewarding. Openness to new ideas and ways of doing things allows us to have more fun along the way.

Co-Learning

We aim to create an environment of continuous learning. While we provide educational content, along with insights, tips and tricks to ‘stay in the game’, we encourage participants to share about their own wellness progress and setbacks, to learn from eachother.

Evidence-Based Outcomes

We value good data and evidence-based outcomes.

Our program has been designed to incentivize and motivate participants to achieve better health outcomes, by designing-in evidence-based approaches and best practices from both the health and social science fields.

To ensure outcomes are based on evidence and quality data, we require biometrics at the start and end of our program, as well as evidence of wellness activities completed throughout the year.

Commitment & Accountability

Wellness journeys are unique and personal for each individual and require on-going commitment and accountability. Participants are each individually responsible for the outcomes and progress achieved, and active participation is necessary to achieve results.

Beyond individual accountability, we also aim to facilitate social accountability among group members.

Collaboration

We value collaboration and mutually-beneficial value-add and partnerships. We aim to foster a culture of fun-loving collaboration, respect and support in our groups.

Our Beginnings

The original concept for Healthiby comes from a physician’s frustrations with preventable chronic conditions. Considering nearly half of the U.S. population will have at least one preventable chronic condition by 2025, the health and social problems associated with chronic conditions are increasing, and many of the current prevention and management approaches are insufficient for achieving meaningful, measurable health outcomes.

Founded in 2018 with the belief that financial benefits should align with health benefits, Healthiby set out to create a solution that helps people achieve not only long-term financial benefits, by avoiding costly medical expenses, but also short-term benefits, through fun contests that provide financial rewards.
