Humana has announced full integration with Apple’s HealthKit for HumanaVitality®, the company’s consumer health app for iPhone and iPod touch, providing users a clear and current overview of their health and fitness data.
“The simple, innovative, and easy-to-use design of the Apple Health app makes it easier for these Humana members to collectively manage their fitness data so they can improve their health,” said Bruce Broussard, Humana’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “Apple is taking a significant step forward with regards to the ‘quantified self.’ As more consumers use Apple Health, the platform can also help the health care industry leverage the power of technology to further transform the consumer health experience.”
The HumanaVitality App, designed to make it easy and simple for consumers to engage with their health, enables users to create and measure specific, personal wellness goals (get active, eat better, lose weight or reduce stress). HumanaVitality rewards members for meeting these goals and for other healthy behaviors, from getting a biometrics screening to taking 10,000 physician-recommended steps a day.
HumanaVitality members who use the HumanaVitality App can upload fitness data from their favorite wearables into Apple Health and earn Vitality Points™ for hitting their health and fitness milestones. First users must choose to share data from their fitness devices to Apple Health and then grant HumanaVitality permission to read this data which is used to measure against their goals. When goals are met, users earn valuable Vitality Points™ which can be redeemed at the HumanaVitality Mall for movie tickets, fitness equipment, music downloads and more. HumanaVitality members that use the app will need to be on iOS 8.0.2.
The HumanaVitality App is available for free from the App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at www.AppStore.com. For more information about the HumanaVitality App, watch the video above or visit this Humana website.
