Kevin Volpp Comments on IBC Workplace Walking Study

Source: Reuters, July 7, 2016 Researchers at Independence Blue Cross compared workplace walking programs with and without “enhanced” features and found participants in the enhanced programs logged more steps, lost more weight and reported more improvement in energy and mood. Kevin Volpp commented that “it’s hard to know which part of the program was really the key ingredient to improvement. The challenge with these interventions is to disentangle the pieces of the intervention, to figure out which components, like feedback and incentives, had an impact.”
