SCAN Health Plan has partnered with us to provide a fully subsidized Fitbit tracker to eligible members. The program aims to help members stay active, build healthy habits, and support members to feel their best and maintain independence as they get older.
With Fitbit Care, members can watch engaging videos with insights into heart health, sleep, stress, and more. They’ll also have access to SCAN’s private community group for additional support and motivation from other members.
Onduo by Verily offers a Fitbit device and a one-year Fitbit Premium membership to eligible members as part of the company’s approach to whole person health, which focuses on better health holistically. Offering the Fitbit experience, alongside the Onduo program that supports people managing chronic health conditions like diabetes, gives members access to a more comprehensive view of how aspects of their health and wellbeing fit together, including activity, sleep and stress. This can help participants better manage their health and develop healthy habits that work for them.
“Together with Fitbit, we’ll be able to better support condition-specific management and our members’ overall health and wellness by providing new tools and actionable guidance to support their health journeys. For example, in using Fitbit, Onduo members will receive insights on how increased activity can decrease resting heart rate — and they will be able to proactively engage in the management of their activity, sleep and nutrition.” – Vindell Washington, MD, MS, Chief Clinical Officer, Care & Director of Health Equity Center of Excellence, Verily
