Ballad Health has partnered with Sharecare, a digital health company, to offer team members more resources to help you manage your overall well-being and health. The Sharecare platform provides personalized health profiles, where you can easily connect to information, programs and professionals to help you live your healthiest and happiest life.
To access these programs, enter the B-Well powered by Sharecare portal under the resources tab in the Ballad Teams team member mobile app.
Benefits of B-Well powered by Sharecare
The B-Well powered by Sharecare platform also gives you the ability to access the evolving story of your health, where you can securely store and access your health data and take part in wellness programs and challenges.
Your health profile is compiled using the scientifically based RealAge Test, which team members have access to through the B-Well powered by Sharecare platform.
You’ll answer a series of questions to assess your eating, exercise and sleep habits, along with family health history. Including personal wellness indicators such as blood pressure and cholesterol levels also helps you get a truer picture of your real age. If you have recent numbers, you’ll want to have them in-hand when you take the test.
Based on your responses, the RealAge assessment will offer a personalized health plan you can use to lower your body’s health age and improve your overall well-being.
Green Day Trackers
The Sharecare technology also uses “green day” trackers that help you monitor core health factors that influence individual health the most. Some trackers use sensors from your devices to track data, such as the number of steps you take or the amount of sleep you get. For example, you can connect your tracker to a FitBit or Samsung Health watch. You can also manually enter tracking data with in-app selections and entry, such as exercise and meal tracking.
Sharecare offers team members programs for breathing and relaxing, guided meditations, movement, sleep and more. For example, learn how to do a fast 5-mintue workout during your day or plug in your headphones and listen to serene, calming sounds, such as the ocean, forest or rain.
Wellness Challenges: Coming up, Appalachian Trail Quest Challenge
To make health and wellness fun and easy, Ballad Health will launch wellness challenges where team members can get healthy while earning prizes. Our first one, the Appalachian Trail Quest Challenge, kicks off in April.
Through this challenge, we will cumulatively track our steps together as we virtually hike 4,400 round-trip miles from Mt. Katahdin, Maine, to Springer Mountain, Georgia. Your steps count whether you’re hitting the trails with your hiking boots or walking the neighborhood or treadmill in your tennis shoes.
Be on the lookout for more information in Ballad Health News and Ballad Teams in the coming days on how to join the challenge and start tracking your steps.
