It’s a mobile app platform that provides important alerts, education, rewards, and personalized navigation through your health resources allowing you to make the best choices for you and your family’s health. The platform provides one “hub” to access all of your HR, Benefit, Wellness information, and even earn rewards! Employees enrolled in city benefits can also access insurance ID cards and benefit plan summaries. The platform is accessible via smartphone, tablet, web, or smart watch and runs on iOS or Android devices.
Renew Mobile Health is personalized based on your health, wellness programs, and benefit plan.

Absolutely not! Renew Mobile Health is HIPAA compliant, and your employer does not have access to your personal information. Renew Mobile Health’s built-in “logic” allows the digital Mobile Health “Coach” to review your health information, similar to a physician. For example, when you visit your doctor, he or she starts by gathering information such as your weight, blood pressure, blood sugar, etc. If your weight and blood sugar are outside of healthy guidelines, your doctor knows these are risks for diabetes and would start coaching you on decreasing these health risks. The Renew Mobile Health “Coach” works much the same way. When you enter a weight or blood sugar measurement outside of healthy guidelines, the Renew Mobile Health platform coaches you to decrease these health risks. The platform may do this by recommending health programs, providing incentives for healthy actions, or providing you with a list of questions to discuss with your doctor.
The Renew Mobile Health platform is accessible via smartphone, tablet, smart watch, or the web. The platform has the same features and functions regardless of the device you choose to use.
Renew Mobile Health does not use cell phone numbers nor does the platform send text messages. When you register your account, Renew Mobile Health obtains the unique device ID number for your smartphone or device. The platform pushes personalized content to your device using that device ID number, just like consumer sites such as Facebook or LinkedIn.

Like many apps you may be familiar with today, Renew Mobile Health utilizes algorithms to personalize your education and coaching as you provide health information. Similar to when you visit your doctor, he or she starts your exam by taking your biometrics, such as weight and blood pressure, and asking questions such as “Do you exercise or use tobacco products?” Your doctor will then coach you or create a treatment program based on your current health and lifestyle. Renew Mobile Health works the same way, using the most widely-accepted clinical studies and evidence-based medicine to create your personalized health profile. The health “Coach” uses your health data, along with information such as age, gender, geographical location, and medical elections to personalize your health coaching and communications.
