In response to KHN’s story, Workplace Wellness Programs Put Privacy At Risk (Hancock, 9/30) –
Amy McDonough, vice president and general manager, Fitbit Wellness:
We are also committed to leading the industry in protecting our users’ privacy when they participate in their employers’ wellness programs. In August we developed a Wellness Community Pledge (http://www.fitbit.com/fitbit-wellness/pledge) for our corporate wellness clients, providing guidance to help them ensure that their wellness program complies with the law and creates a positive experience that inspires healthy habits. We agree that best practices are needed here to protect user privacy.
