Spire is an innovative and timely new lifestyle app that is designed to use the power of social networking to enable health care providers, health insurers and employers to encourage healthier lifestyles.
The app leverages the power of peer pressure in a positive way by making people accountable for their health and helping them hold people they care for accountable for their health goals. Users can have their health data synced with Fitbit and Jawbone fitness devices, allowing for a more expansive view of their health.
The Governor's Foundation for Health and Wellness has pointed out that Tennesseans are among the most unhealthy people in the country. That being the case, the Spire health and lifestyle app looks to be a worthy weapon in the fight against poor health in the state of Tennessee.
