APRIL 21, 2022, Vancouver, British Columbia: wellteq Digital Health Inc.

The subscription-based service aims to empower more people to put their health and wellbeing first. Read more from nib’s press release.
wellteq’s digital health solution integrates its partners, including Garmin, Fitbit, Apple, and other health provider partners, into the nib-customised digital wellness app to help them deliver personalised content and healthy action nudges, gamification, rewards and more. nib’s GreenPass membership enables non-private health insurance members to access several different benefit pathways, from personalised health plans, discounts on health and wellness services, rewards for reaching health goals through their well with nib app, an online skin check, fitness tracking and exclusive pricing with nib’s network of trusted health professionals.
wellteq Chief Operating Officer, Jeames Gillett said: “wellteq has been working closely with nib for several years to evolve our shared ambition of providing personalised health and wellbeing at scale. We’re incredibly excited to support nib in the launch of GreenPass as it extends access beyond private health insurance members to the wider Australian population. At a time when our health and wellbeing has been tested, access to GreenPass will provide individuals with an opportunity to have personalised support on their journey to better health.”
Ed Close, nib Chief Executive Australian Residents Health Insurance said: “the GreenPass is a game-changer for the industry, designed to help more Aussies access the right tools, services and information they need to support their better health.”
“By making membership as much about supporting good health as the treatment of sickness and injury we have an opportunity to play a bigger role in how we help more Australians to keep healthy and out of hospital,”
“With this in mind, we created nib GreenPass, which is intentionally created to empower people of all ages to better understand their health profile and offer health and wellness perks and services they can use every day to keep on top of their health.”
This timely solution aligns with market projections1 that the global digital health industry will reach USD 295.4 billion by 2028, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15.1% from 2021 to 2028. Asia-Pacific (APAC) is expected to register the fastest CAGR over the forecast period due to the rising usage of tablets, smartphones, and other mobile platforms across the region, which includes Australia, Japan, China, India, South Korea and Singapore.
Scott Montgomery, wellteq’s Chief Executive Officer said: ”when two companies missions align the synergies can create powerful things. nib’s payer to partner strategy dovetails perfectly with wellteq’s mission to coach healthier habits across the full continuum of healthcare. The manifestation of this synergy is GreenPass, a fantastic opportunity for anyone to try digital health tools at no cost and hopefully inspire them on a behaviour change journey that’s good for them, good for nib and good for wellteq. The ideal win-win situation and another step towards proactive, equitable virtual care.”
