Aviva launches healthy living Facebook app

Allows users to compare health scores

Aviva has launched a healthy living Facebook app just a week after introducing a stress management mobile app.

Aviva Health 100 rates users’ health and allows them to compare scores with friends and family, before providing them with advice and goals on how to become fitter and healthier.

Users will be able to share their progress with others using the ‘goals tracker’ function.

The app is available to all Facebook users and initially invites people to answer a short quiz about their lifestyle, including diet, exercise, drinking and smoking habits. This information is used to generate a health score out of 100.

Tips and videos featuring health and fitness experts and professional athletes are available to provide inspiration and information on exercise and healthy eating.

Dr Doug Wright, medical director at Aviva UK Health, said: “We’ve developed the Aviva Health 100 Facebook app to help people take control of their health.

“It’s designed to help people gauge how healthy they are and to provide expert advice, guidance and inspiration on how to improve their lifestyle. However fit people are, the app is fun and will appeal to all.”

Aviva also offers MyHealthCounts, a health management programme, exclusively to customers with its Healthier Solutions private medical insurance.

The service invites Aviva customers to take a more comprehensive health and lifestyle questionnaire, and offers up to 15% discount on renewal premiums for those who can demonstrate a good health status.

And last week the provider launched an app for iPhones and Android mobiles, My Stress Kit, designed to identify the causes of stress and help manage its symptoms.
