Since its inception in 2012, higi has built the largest self-screening health station network in the US, impacting over 38 million people who have conducted over 185 million biometric screenings.  The self-screening health stations are free to use and easily accessible in over 10 thousand retail locations across the country.  Today, 78% of the US population is located within five miles of a higi self-screening health station, and 4+ million users have already signed up to participate within higi's on-line community platform.

To facilitate ongoing engagement with users beyond the self-screening health stations themselves, higi has built out a robust on-line community platform that provides a dynamic environment for organizations to share relevant content, conduct challenges, track activity and reward participants for their accomplishments. This new on-line community platform is connected to the self-screening station network and interfaces with over 70 health devices, activity trackers and apps.  It also allows users to instantly share their on-line experience with family and friends via their preferred social networks.

"We see a tremendous opportunity to work with national brands, thought-leaders and celebrities to help them directly engage with their respective audiences in a meaningful way that inspires them to take measurable action when it comes to managing their health." says Jeff Bennett, CEO of higi.

Bennett indicated that higi has several partnership initiatives already in place set to launch in 2017. One example is the "What's My Win" initiative developed by Golden Image Enterprises that will be bringing brands, celebrities, musicians and media personalities together to promote #whatsmywin across all social media platforms to find, recognize and reward individuals for their wellness wins.
