Wellness Checkpoint is a mobile and web-based service that aims to assess and provide resources designed to improve the user’s health and well-being. After signing up, users complete a brief baseline assessment which asks questions about their physical and mental health status. Once completed, users are given a Wellness Risk score which rates the impact of a user’s lifestyle choices on their wellness. Based on a user’s score, they are provided with a variety of psychoeducational content in topics such as stress, exercise, and healthy eating. There is also a “My Plan” tool which suggests a variety of habits to track (e.g., Yoga practice, avoiding high sugar snacks, drinking 8 glasses of water, etc.) Users are able to connect their wearable devices for additional tracking, and are also able to retake assessments to help track their progress. Users can also connect with peers and co-workers and access external resources provided on the website. Wellness Checkpoint requires an access code from the user’s employer.
