BestLifeRewarded Innovations

BestLifeRewarded Innovations. (BLRi) is a Canadian company founded for the sole purpose of getting Canada healthier. The management team had worked in healthcare marketing and sales for many years and were constantly taken aback by the staggering increases in chronic disease -- with no foreseeable solution. For them, the deciding factor was the prediction that we will now outlive our kids due to the rates of obesity and associated diseases. BestLifeRewarded Innovations was created to do things differently and drive immediate action to reduce and improve our health risks. BLRi brought together healthcare professionals, not-for-profit organizations and industry leaders to establish a coordinated assault for a healthier Canada. Having worked in the business, they were acutely aware of how overwhelming it can be when someone is diagnosed with a disease or told to lose 100 lbs. Adding further complication was a fragmented health system with many players and agendas that convoluted the goals to increase health.

BLRi knew they had to develop a simple system that was available to everyone, so they analyzed all the research about how to increase success and developed a sophisticated communications system to drive results. They also explored a vast array of loyalty programs. These programs had great success for driving people to gas stations and coffee shops, so why not apply this model in healthcare? They knew that the combination of great tools and information, gradual steps to make changes and rewards for efforts would provide the best scenario for success. BestLifeRewarded® is the first-ever loyalty program that focuses solely on health. BLRi is proud to provide tools that empower Canadians to make healthy changes.
