In a three-year retrospective study that analyzed health care claims and wearable device data from a self-insured employer, Springbuk looked at the potential impact of Fitbit technology as part of a wellness program. The analysis shows that connected health and fitness interventions can close the gap between the everyday actions that change health and drive outcomes for employee health and employer cost. Some of the key findings include: * Employees who opted into the Fitbit program demonstrated significant cost savings when compared to the control group. * Engaged users cost less than non-engaged users. * The opportunity for cost savings is potentially the highest with less active individuals.
