DailyEndorphin And Tufts Health Plan Team Up On Employer Wellness Programs

MINNEAPOLIS, April 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Beginning this spring, Tufts Health Plan will deliver a simple and configurable wellness solution to selected employers who are offering group fitness challenges to their employees.  A branded web application through DailyEndorphin will allow Tufts Health Plan's clients to administer a variety of team fitness and wellness challenges throughout the year.

DailyEndorphin's platform offers simplicity with configurability.  Tufts Health Plan noted their clients sought help with administering and tracking onsite group fitness challenges.  The agreement with DailyEndorphin helps Tufts Health Plan meet a growing demand for effective wellness tools for employers of all sizes.

"We at DailyEndorphin look forward to our partnership with Tufts Health Plan that will offer a highly configurable and effective group wellness platform to its clients over the next 12 months and beyond," said Jeff Mann, DailyEndorphin Co-founder.

Expectations from employees and rising healthcare costs have fueled the adoption of online wellness programs.  Recent studies have shown that the healthiest employees are nearly three times more productive than unhealthy ones and are nine times less likely to be out sick.  And a top university study showed over 160% improvement in behavior change when individuals received support from online teammates.

Research has also shown that the right incentives combined with group-based challenges can increase engagement among employees.  The result means an overall healthier workforce.  In turn, employees will experience higher morale, greater productivity, and less illness and absenteeism.

Tufts Health Plan, which recently received accreditation from the National Committee for Quality Assurance for Wellness & Health Promotion, encourages and supports employers in implementing a comprehensive wellness program that incorporates senior management support, policy and environmental changes, and measurement.  Providing behavior change programs is a part of the cultural changes that employers can offer to employees to support a healthy lifestyle.
