QuitNet from MeYou Health : A Case Study with WellnessIQ

A proven, reliable and cost-effective quit smoking program was introduced as an additional component of a current corporate wellness program.
The problem: Assisting employees with a nicotine dependency
The solution: A clinically validated program including a community of smokers and ex-smokers in every stage of their quit journey. The program includes online digital coaching and an optional mail-order delivery of nicotine replacement therapy.
The results: Employees have collectively saved two years and four months of life, saved nearly $27,000 and left over 112,000 cigarettes unsmoked. After the first 90 days, 59% of the participants are still engaged in the program.
QuitNet “offers support and guidance for those who really want to quit and a loving nudge to those who haven’t committed, but are just about there”.
