Vitality: The Next Generation Measure of Health

๐—ง๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ธ๐™๐˜ผ๐™Ž๐™. In a fascinating announcement, Cigna has now declared their company to be focused on โ€œvitality.โ€ The big piece here is the report of the results of administering the Evernorth Vitality Index to 10,000 adults in the US. The findings? Only one in five Americans report that they experience โ€œhigh vitality,โ€ which is unfortunate because high vitality is associated with better health, higher activity levels, and lots of other good things. And the article offers that โ€œLife stage, gender, community density, sexuality, and income are some of the factors by which vitality varies.โ€

But take a few minutes and read the article which Cigna produced to share the results of the survey. Consider whether vitality should be our focus as a valuable, actionable measure of overall health and well-being, or whether it puts a number of disparate factors into a Mixmaster, leaving us with a conglomeration of different factors that we would be better off dealing with individually.
