Aviva Facebook app gauges users’ health

Aviva has launched a new Facebook app which rates users' health and allows them to compare scores with friends and family in an effort to encourage people to become healthy. The app provides people with advice and goals to become fitter and healthier who will be able to share progress on their goals tracker to build up online support. It rates users health by inviting them to answer a short quiz about their lifestyle, including diet, exercise, drinking and smoking habits, which are used to generate a health score out of 100, with 100 being the best score

Aviva has launched a new Facebook app which rates users’ health and allows them to compare scores with friends and family in an effort to encourage people to become healthy.

The app provides people with advice and goals to become fitter and healthier who will be able to share progress on their goals tracker to build up online support.

It rates users’ health by inviting them to answer a short quiz about their lifestyle, including diet, exercise, drinking and smoking habits, which are used to generate a health score out of 100, with 100 being the best score.

Tips and videos featuring health and fitness experts, including players from Norwich City Football Club, athletes and Aviva Premiership Rugby players with information on how to exercise and make healthy dietary changes are part of the app.

It also includes a range of personal stories to inspire others to take control of their health. 

Aviva UK health medical director Dr Doug Wright said: “We know that as a nation we’re becoming unhealthier and it’s important for everyone to realise how easy it is to make changes to their lifestyles to improve their health and fitness, now and in the future.  

“We’ve developed the Aviva Health 100 Facebook app to help people take control of their health.”

The Aviva Health 100 app is available to all on the Aviva UK Facebook page.  It is in addition to the insurer’s health management programme MyHealthCounts, which is available to customers with Healthier Solutions private medical insurance.

This service offers up to 15% discount on renewal premiums for people who can demonstrate a good health status.
