Protecting your business and your workforce during the COVID-19 pandemic

By Lynda Chin, MD​  Co-Founder & Chief Executive Officer, Apricity Health

COVID-19 continues to wreak havoc on public health and the global economy as US case counts are at their highest levels since the pandemic began.  In addition to masking, social distancing and disinfection, businesses must take action to implement a sustainable and cost effective strategy that combines testing and monitoring to protect their workforce.

Maintaining a COVID-19 safe workplace has become an urgent imperative to maintain business continuity.  Particularly in high-risk industries such as manufacturing, retail, travel, and education where employees work in close proximity and transmission of COVID-19 is more likely. 

While the promise of a vaccine in the near future is encouraging, experts predict it will take months to procure and...

The Truth About Well-Being Wearables

What is a Wearable?

Wearables are portable human activity trackers that measure vital statistics about your heart rate, activity, calories burned and even sleep quality.  The most common wearables on the market include Garmin, FitBit and Apple Watch.  The power and appeal of wearables lies in the real time data they provide about a persons current health status.  Simply knowing how many steps you've taken today or how many calories you've burned can help you make healthier choices tomorrow. 

Why Wearables?

Many employers have capitalized on the psychology of wearables to encourage employees to achieve their health and wellness goals by incorporating wearables in wellness programs and offering incentives for meeting activity goals.  In fact, a number of employers are offering wearables for free because of their potential to help employees make healthier lifestyle choices.   

Wearable devices have certainly come a long...

Thank you so much for always being so proactive and helpful. It make such a huge difference in our ability to run a successful wellness program!

I am learning a lot from the US Wellness Health Improvement Program videos available on the wellness portal. I went grocery shopping earlier this week on a full stomach. That is a much better way to go, you tend to only get what you need, save money and I don't compulsive buy on what I am craving. Thanks for your help!

We could not have asked for a better team than the one led by US Wellness this last week during our screenings.  They showed up early, were efficient, and all had very positive and helpful attitudes.  They were a great team and provided the City employees with first class service.  I am positive they had an impact on several employees who will hopefully use this screening as a motivator for better health … I know it will be a motivator for me!  They represented US Wellness as a top notch, customer focused group and we could not have been more pleased with their work.

I just wanted to thank you for allowing me to work for US Wellness.  I have to tell you that after many years of working with several different wellness companies, your company US Wellness is by far one of the best. I was so impressed with how organized you all are and how pleasant everyone was to work with. When the equipment arrived...everything was included...and when I had a problem with one shipment d/t UPS problem, you took care of it right away. Leesa was lovely to speak with before and after the event was thanks again.

Wellness day 2020 was a success! A 50% increase in participants was attained and I must say a greater awareness of heath prevention strategies was learned by all.  Thank you for bringing this awesome program to our district. The nurse was knowledgeable, informative, and was welcomed by all.  We look forward to this program next year!
