Designing Incentive Programs with Sahha data

When designing incentive programs for policyholders using Sahha, health insurers should consider many factors that create a great experience for individuals and their unique health requirements.

A short guide to designing engaging programs delivered through apps

Alignment with Well-Being Goals is crucial to both policy-holder and insurer success. Ensure incentives align with the insurer's well-being and health promotion objectives and that they are delivered to policy-holders in a way that incentivises engagement.


Sahha App

Core components of great well-being programs

Well designed well-being programs often feature 3 components for insurers and their customers:

  • Policyholder Wellness App: A health insurer can create a policyholder wellness app where users set their well-being goals, such as achieving a specific well-being score, reducing stress levels, or increasing physical activity. Incentives, such as premium reductions or wellness rewards, are tied to the achievement of these goals.

  • Personalized Health Challenges: Insurers can design personalized health challenges within their mobile app, encouraging policyholders to align their well-being objectives with insurer-defined goals. For instance, users may be challenged to maintain a certain well-being score for an extended period, ensuring that their health aligns with the insurer's wellness standards.

  • Condition-Specific Programs: Insurers can offer condition-specific well-being programs for policyholders with chronic conditions like diabetes or hypertension. These programs can be designed to align with the management and improvement of these conditions, providing tailored incentives for adherence to care plans and lifestyle changes.
