Expanded network of connected devices and apps broadens the available options for consumers to sync their health data and earn rewards for active engagement in their health
MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- RedBrick Health, a fast-growing leader in consumer health engagement and behavior change technology, today announces the expansion of its RedBrick ReadyTM partner network, adding Garmin®, MapMyFitness®, Fitbit® Aria™ and Withings to its growing roster of connected devices and apps. Through RedBrick Ready, consumers can easily sync data from their favorite devices and apps with their RedBrick accounts, and earn credit and rewards for active engagement in their health.
With this round of additions, RedBrick Health adds new data integration capabilities that go beyond physical activity tracking.

This additional data enhances each consumer's personal RedBrick HealthMap™, RedBrick's personalization framework, and informs richer interactions for those engaged with a RedBrick coach.
"As consumers embrace the growing array of ways to monitor and improve their health through apps and devices, we will continue to expand our integration framework to bring this data together," stated Dan Ryan, chief executive officer for RedBrick Health. "By enabling consumers to sync data from best of breed apps and devices with their RedBrick account, we provide more choices for consumers, and broader and more complete population health management systems for our clients and partners."
