BestLifeRewarded offers an online computer program that encourages healthier living through small steps and computer “clicks”. BestLifeRewarded works with Canadian companies (and several federal departments and agencies) to help individuals learn how to improve their health and to reduce health-related costs. Individuals answer a health-related questionnaire online and receive personalized action plans, so they can make positive health changes, while earning points to bid on monthly rewards (e.g. gift certificates).
Ottawa Branch has negotiated for our branch members to have free access to this computerized health behaviour program or up to two years, as a pilot project. During that time, BestLifeRewarded will study the results as part of a research project on seniors’ health behaviour change.
Members who decide to participate will be asked to read and accept a consent form that explains how BestLifeRewarded complies with federal and provincial privacy legislation and safeguards the information it collects. You can stop participating at any time.
Ottawa Branch members can access the pilot project here: www.bestliferewarded.com/pilotnafr When asked, please enter the member invitation code: nafrottawahealth
