How GoPivot’s Comprehensive Wellness Platform Tackles High Blood Pressure and Heart Disease

Heart disease and stroke are leading causes of death in the U.S., with high blood pressure significantly increasing the risk. Employers are stepping up to address these serious health risks through comprehensive wellness programs that include nutrition and lifestyle solutions, biometric screenings, and health coaching.

The Problem: Rising Health Risks

High blood pressure affects nearly half of U.S. adults, yet only about 1 in 4 have it under control. This condition costs the nation approximately $131 billion annually. Addressing this widespread issue is crucial for improving population health and reducing healthcare costs.

The Solution: Employee Wellbeing Programs

Employers in 2024 are increasingly recognizing the crucial role of wellness programs in enhancing overall organizational wellbeing. In the latest Gallagher workforce trends report, data shows that employers are experiencing higher healthcare costs and it’s pushing them to consider better strategies and benefits to enhance employee wellbeing.  According to Health Partners and Labcorp, 70% of employers are actively enhancing employee well-being through expanded benefits and resources, and 1 in 3 employees have improved their health through employer-sponsored wellness programs, respectively.

Our Approach: A Comprehensive, Total Wellness Solution

GoPivot leverages points-based rewards to motivate employees to improve their health.  Our behavior-change methodology starts with the ‘Hook Method,’ where employees are instantly rewarded for completing a new user journey which sets them on a path to health.  Each employee is given a personalized fitness and nutrition plan tailored to improving health outcomes.  Employees earn points every step of the way by completing daily, monthly, quarterly, and annual activities geared toward preventative health.  GoPivot also partners with Labcorp for one-on-one health coaching and condition management to help ensure employees have the resources they need to achieve their wellness goals.

The Greater Impact: Improved Workplace Culture

Beyond health benefits, these programs enhance overall workplace culture by showing that employers prioritize employee wellness. This proactive approach not only boosts morale but also helps lower long-term healthcare costs for both employers and employees.

Conclusion: The Importance of Preventive Health

Heart disease remains a leading cause of death, costing $147 billion in lost productivity annually. Preventative strategies including regular screenings and early interventions are essential for mitigating these risks. By investing in comprehensive wellness programs, employers can proactively invest in their employees’ health and well-being, fostering a healthier and more productive workforce.
