LifeOmic, the creator of LIFE mobile apps and the Precision Health Cloud platform in use at major medical and cancer centers, today announced its first employee wellness solution, LifeOmic Precision Wellness. The new product combines the company’s successful consumer-facing app, LIFE Extend, with the company’s Precision Health Cloud to provide a free, science-backed and easy-to-administer tool to help employers encourage healthy behaviors by employees. The platform is currently powering wellness for over 50 companies, including Bavard, Distance Learning Centers and Katz Sapper Miller.
As employers continue to invest in expensive workplace wellness programs, many organizations are not seeing a return on investment nor an improvement on health outcomes for employees. LifeOmic aims to address these concerns with the launch of LifeOmic Precision Wellness. The employee wellness product leverages precision medicine to create a free personalized platform to encourage healthy habits while improving retention, reducing health insurance claims and minimizing absenteeism.
“The majority of workplace wellness programs are expensive, difficult to use and ineffective,” said Don Brown, CEO of LifeOmic. “We saw an opportunity to utilize LIFE Extend, a mobile app that has already proven to be successful by millions of users worldwide and optimize it for use by employers. The resulting product will drive employee engagement and provide tangible benefits to both employers and their employees.”

“We love the idea of approaching employee wellness using research-based tools and see Precision Wellness as the perfect way to prioritize employee health and satisfaction in our company, ” said Angie Brown, co-founder of Bavard. “Our employees feel confident following the program and are more encouraged to reach their health and wellness goals.”
Employers can also create social “Circles” within the app for employees to join and engage with co-workers and friends, encouraging them to meet their goals. Employees also have access to the LIFE Apps Learning Library and Lifeology courses, giving them access to hundreds of scientifically-validated resources covering aging, metabolism, nutrition and much more. Additionally, employees can utilize LifeOmic’s network of experts to engage in one-on-one coaching and support on topics such as nutrition, exercise, mindfulness, sleep and intermittent fasting.
LifeOmic Precision Wellness integrates with most wearable devices including Fitbit, Garmin, Apple Watch, connected scales and more. It also provides optional biomarker testing to provide actionable insights from a simple blood draw. The platform uses this information to make personalized recommendations based on each user’s specific biology. All data is easy to manage and is stored in LifeOmic’s secure, HIPAA Compliant, HITRUST CSF and SOC 2 Certified cloud platform.
