cohealth announces social health game pilot opportunity

September 21, 2011

in cohealth

one of greg’s and my goals when we launched cohealth was to give the workplace wellness community a way to influence thinking, design and outcomes. i’m delighted to announce our first pilot opportunity to do all that and more. between september 21 and october 20, cohealth members can sign up and use meyou health’s daily challenge. on october 25 at 2 PM ET, we’ll invite participants to share their feedback. read on for information about daily challenge and our cohealth pilot.

about daily challenge

daily challenge delivers small, daily, doable activities to your inbox. activities include checking something off your to-do list, ridding yourself of one unwanted piece of clothing, stretching once during the day. the activities are based on six domains, as identified by the gallup-healthways well-being index, and include emotional and physical health as well as basic access, work environment, healthy behaviors (like eating), and life evaluation. as you complete these activities, you can share what challenges you took and how you completed them, and also encourage others to complete a challenge.

anyone who joins our cohealth pilot and completes daily challenges will earn points that turn into tokens. tokens can be redeemed for keys that unlock premium content and topic-focused challenges for 28 days at a time—for instance, “exercise for everyone” and “wonderful walks.” there are others that focus on workplace movement, stress relief, healthy eating and sleep, and next week meyou health will launch a new one focused on professional development.

daily challenge is currently a consumer product. it’ll be available to employers in 2012.

sign up!

sign-up is simple and free. to join our cohealth challenge:

1. sign up. visit the cohealth meyou health page to sign up for the daily challenge via facebook or email.
2. set your preferences. you can set how you’d like to receive daily challenges and who you’d like to be connected to. you can also personalize your page with a photo and brief bio.
3. invite connections. you’ll get more out of daily challenge if you create a social circle. if you sign up via facebook, you can invite your facebook network to join you. or you can send invites to friends and employees via email.

learning from cohealth: hold the date

we agreed to offer this opportunity for two reasons. we believe it offers our community the chance to test an interesting product that’s soon to be launched as an enterprise solution. it also provides an opportunity for the cohealth community to share their perspectives and needs.

we’ll conduct a focus group at the end of the trial and invite you to give your unvarnished feedback about what you liked, what you didn’t, and what features or changes you’d like to see. i’ll facilitate this focus group with meyou health as i’d also like to understand what you’d like from future pilots.

date: tuesday, october 25
time: 2pm ET
logistics: we’ll send invites to all participants closer to the date

carrie, that’s great! be sure to invite some colleagues to join so you have a network of allies and can see how it feels for your organization, too. and please hold the date for the focus group. we at cohealth want to what you’d like from any future pilots and meyou health would love to hear what you thought of daily challenge.

Just sent the link to my family and co-workers. And I will certainly attend the focus group if I can make it work with my schedule. Have a great day.
