A Great New Way to Help Improve Your Employees’ Health Care (Hint: It Involves a Game-Changing App)
Employees challenge themselves everyday, whether it’s through a complicated assignment, a tough presentation or added responsibilities. These challenges pay off in the long run, of course, but what if your employees could tackle their health and wellness goals during and after the workday? By offering your employees Rally®, an innovative health-tracking app that integrates with UnitedHealthcare plans, now they can.
Accessible from mobile devices and myuhc.com®, Rally encourages members to challenge themselves and improve their overall health. The best part? It’s easy to use. Members begin by taking a Health Survey, where they answer questions about their diet, fitness and other health-related subjects. Using that data, Rally generates the member’s Rally AgeSM, an indicator to help the member assess their health compared to others their age. (If they’re super-healthy, for example, the member’s Rally Age might be lower than their actual age!)
Once the profile is complete, Rally recommends Missions: tasks designed to help improve eating habits, activity and mood. These can include suggestions like walking 5,000 steps a day, focusing on fruits and vegetables, and being grateful. Rally also offers Communities, which are ideal for office-wide conversations and initiatives.
As employees complete Missions and enter Challenges, they earn Rally Coins, which can be used to enter sweepstakes for a chance to win rewards such as gift cards and the latest tech devices. Rally can also help employers deliver their own incentive packages to employees. All of the information — completed Missions, Challenges and earned Rally Coins — is available within the app and easily trackable, so employees will always be up-to-date on their progress.
Best of all, Rally is included as part of UnitedHealthcare medical plans, which means employers may get happier, healthier and more productive employees simply by offering Rally in tandem with their standard UnitedHealthcare plan. And, with the newfound emphasis on wellness in the workplace, Rally and its health-forward platform and feel-good rewards makes health plans work harder for you and your employees.

Rally Health provides health and well-being information and support as part of your health plan. It does not provide medical advice or other health services, and is not a substitute for your doctor’s care. If you have specific health care needs, consult an appropriate health care professional. Participation in the health survey is voluntary. Your responses will be kept confidential in accordance with the law and will only be used to provide health and wellness recommendations or conduct other plan activities.This is a paid partnership between UnitedHealthcare and Philadelphia Magazine's City/Studio
