Dapp: Track Fitness
User Audience: Employees, Employer Benefit Managers, Health Insurance Providers, Fitness Centers, Occupational Therapists
Track Fitness was built to make it easier for various participants in employee health incentive programs to share information and expedite payments.
Many employers that are partnered with health insurance firms offer incentives to employees to encourage the use of fitness centers and other health improvement-related facilities. These programs typically reimburse the employee after they provide proof of having used such a facility. These programs have a minimum criteria (such as 70% attendance in 90 days) that employees need to satisfy. Unfortunately, many such benefits go underutilized because the burden of proof of attendance lies with the employee. The process of reimbursement is not only cumbersome, but often times the effort outweighs what is gained from completing the incentives; getting reimbursement necessitates acquiring monthly or quarterly statements from the fitness facilities, filling out paperwork with the benefits program, and then waiting for the reimbursement. We believe that all participants in such programs would benefit from making this process seamless by providing all parties instant access to the data once certain criteria are met.
The Track Fitness Dapp is centered around a smart contract that is activated based on the actions of users; if a user fulfills specified conditions, such as visiting the gym a certain number of times in a month, the contract is executed and the user is able to receive the payout. The physical locations (Gyms) will be required to have the Track Fitness mobile/tablet app where a user can scan a QR code to confirm their attendance. All participants, including health insurance firms, employer benefits programs, fitness centers, and employees register on a common platform. As a participating employee meets the criteria, the smart contract is executed, interested parties get notified, and payment due to the employee is able to be paid instantly. This contract can also be utilized by multiple organizations executing off the same event; a user can thus be rewarded by multiple organizations for executing the same task (for example, a gym member who completes a specified number of visits can be rewarded by both the gym’s internal rewards program as well as by the employers health benefit reimbursement program).
Track Fitness demonstrates how all three Hedera Hashgraph Network Services can be harnessed in tandem to create cutting-edge distributed applications. We used the Hedera File Service to upload compiled Solidity bytecode to the network, the Smart Contract Service to deploy smart contracts and call smart contract functions, and the Cryptocurrency Service to monitor reward remittance by queuing user account balances in real time. Track Fitness smart contracts were written in Solidity and compiled using Solc Compiler Version 0.4.25. Track Fitness was built using HAPI API’s for both the crypto account and smart contracts.
