DENVER -- Welltok, a leading enterprise software-as-a-service company for consumer health, announced a new strategic partnership with Michigan-based Hygieia Wellness, a leading provider of extensive wellness benefits for hundreds of employers across the country.
In the multi-year agreement, Welltok said it will provide the technology platform for Hygieia's clients to deploy their health programs and resources to millions of employees across the U.S.
Hygieia Wellness offers extensive wellness benefits for employees and developed the most comprehensive group hospital indemnity policy to protect against catastrophic out-of-pocket life events.
Serving employers nationwide, the company offers a comprehensive array of services, including nutrition education, food journal guidance, meal planning assistance, healthy recipes, weight management resources, coaching and much more.
The company said it selected Welltok to digitize these services and provide a singular destination for employees to participate in an array of wellness activities.
"Leveraging Welltok's platform will accelerate our ability to achieve our goal of delivering the most robust and effective wellness programs to our customers," said Doug Frederick, Hygieia’s CFO.
"This partnership allows us to create a true win for both employees and employers. Employees improve their health and can increase their take home pay by participating in exercise, nutrition and preventative care programs.
“While employers experience increased productivity and retention, better morale, lower health related costs and improve health overall."
Accessible online or through a mobile application, Welltok said its consumer activation platform connects employees with Hygieia's extensive portfolio of wellness programs and resources.
The platform systematically applies machine learning to both healthcare and non-healthcare data to understand and predict individual employee needs. Each employee then receives a unique action plan with the relevant health and wellbeing resources available to them, creating a highly-personalized and holistic user experience, the company said.
"We are excited to welcome Hygieia Wellness to our growing list of health service companies leveraging our platform to deploy their valuable health and wellbeing content and services at scale," said Rob Scavo, Welltok president and COO.
"We're proud that our technology will help power Hygieia's growth initiatives and increase its ability to positively impact millions of employees and their sponsors."
