According to Discovery, VitalityMobile aims to create a unique wellness community. “Using this interconnected community, Vitality can generate significant savings to members by offering free calls and boosting their data capabilities,” the company said.
“The genesis of VitalityMobile was the compelling trend of technology as an enabler to healthy living. From online tools that help our members reach their health goals, to mobile devices that record and track workouts – we have seen the power of technology in improving health status,” said Gidon Novick, CEO of Discovery Vitality.
“VitalityMobile is an extension of this approach, given strong evidence of the impact of community engagement in improving health status”.
According to Alan Knott-Craig, CEO of Cell C, the operator is pleased to partner with a dynamic business like Discovery Vitality.
