Solstice Launches Wellness Program, Rewards Smart Health Choices

November 06, 2013 - Plantation, FL

Solstice Benefits, Inc. has launched an innovative, cutting-edge wellness program, Solstice Synergy, for employer groups. Solstice Synergy enables individuals to have the expertise of a certified personal trainer and nutritionist at the click of a mouse. This interactive and personalized online wellness program is accessible via computer and smartphone. Solstice Synergy increases employee engagement and participation in wellness programs by allowing participants to earn points for making healthy choices in the areas of diet, exercise, and overall wellness. These points can be redeemed for rewards such as digital cameras, hotel stays, sports equipment, movie tickets and more.

Solstice wants to offer a new kind of wellness program—one that rewards people for making good health choices,” says Solstice Director of Human Resources Ellen deClaire. “We picked the name synergy because it represents various elements working together to produce a result greater than the individual parts. Wellness is comprehensive and we included the key components of balanced health into our wellness platform. Our goal is to improve the lives of the people we serve and Solstice Synergy is an excellent tool to provide our clients to help them reach their health and wellness goals.”

With Solstice Synergy, participants start off by creating a Health Risk Assessment (HRA), which helps them identify areas for improvement and create a personal wellness plan. Included in this comprehensive plan is the ability to create customized menus with a specified calorie range and dietary restrictions such as diabetic, gluten-free, heart healthy, vegan and vegetarian. Other features allow members to:

• Log and track daily calorie intake
• Find healthy recipes
• Track fruit and vegetable intake
• Track water consumption
• Utilize an exercise planner
• Track incentive points earned
• Learn about various health topics

“One of the things that sets Solstice apart is that we treat our members like family; so, naturally we want our family members to be well. We believe in a holistic approach to wellness and so we create programs that help our members maintain their overall health. Solstice Synergy is the latest evolution in complete wellness for organizations and their employees,” says Solstice’s COO Carlos Ferrera.

Other Solstice wellness programs include the Prenatal Dental Care program, which extends special prenatal benefits to women in their second and third trimester of pregnancy and the Oral Cancer Screening program, which provides coverage of newer oral cancer screening technologies.
