Let’s go!

And watch your stress, confusion, and overwhelm melt away as you learn what is best for your unique body, and begin to FEEL the results – sometimes almost immediately!

Do I really need to take a photo of myself?

The photo scan is used to create your unique avatar. ShaeWellness technology uses how you look on the outside to understand your health on the inside, and then guides and supports your daily lifestyle and health needs. Challengers can set up their profiles at home or in a private space as preferred. ShaeWellness then crunches over 10,000 data points from your unique avatar to personalise suggestions for sleep, stress, mood, food, activity and overall health. ShaeWellness recommends updating your photo at the start, middle and end of the challenge for the most current advice and to track your progress. If preferred, challengers can have the option to use a tape measure instead of taking their photo to create their avatar.

What does that mean – how I “look on the outside”?

Everything you can see, measure (except DNA) and test on your body is categorised as part of your phenotype. The photo is used to create your profile. It allows the ShaeWellness AI technology to measure the body. While this may seem too simple to gain so much insight, there are more than 500 ratios and over 10,000 data points that create a single profile. This includes the calculation of specific genes from the phenotype data. For example, height is related to over 1500 genes, and you can predict height to within 2.5cm based on genes alone. Therefore, the measure of height can translate to the activation of certain genes.

Why am I asked about sex chromosomes when creating my profile?

This Shae™ app onboarding question is referencing your genetic sex chromosomes of XX for female; and XY for male at birth. This genetic chromosome sequence determines different organ formations and hormonal functions and flows in the human body from a medical and scientific standpoint. This question is not referring to gender identity, which is outside of this scope. Because Shae focuses on the unique genetic and epigenetic makeup of a person, Shae needs to know each user’s biology at birth to provide the most relevant advice to an individual.

If I flag that I am not feeling well / mental health / mood is low, how is this managed?

ShaeWellness tracks data over time and makes recommendations to help improve an individual’s mental health including their risks of stress, anxiety or depression. Should a participant sense they require further or specialised mental health support, they should seek support from their personal health professionals, including accessing Bupa’s online support via Benehub (7:30am-7:30pm AEST). Search for “Assist” on Workplace and follow the registration instructions. Participants may also reach out to mentalhealth@bupa.com.au for any questions and support on accessing EAP. It is important that you access support through any of the available avenues, to ensure that your health and wellbeing is supported as best as possible. Bupa will only receive de-identified data reports from ShaeWellness upon completion of the challenge.

What mental health support is available to me at Bupa?

For those who have access to Workplace, you can access more information here. For those people without access to Workplace, your local Bupa communications feature offerings from the Smile program. You can also talk to your leader about what’s available or email the Smile team directly –SmileProgram@bupa.com.au

How does this relate to other wellbeing programs at Bupa?

Bupa offers all employees access to a broad variety of health and wellbeing information, tools, benefits and support, through Smile, Bupa’s Employee Health and Wellbeing Program. Having access to a broad variety of resources and support is important to ensure that our people have choice and flexibility in how they take care of their health and wellbeing, both inside and outside of work. As a health and care organisation, the 30-day challenge is another opportunity for you to meaningfully work towards your own wellbeing goals, with Bupa’s support.

Who is ShaeWellness?

ShaeWellness is the only Mental Wellbeing & Physical Health epigenetic corporate solution delivering 360 degrees of lifestyle support at work and at home. Informed by over 15 medical and health sciences, the platform delivers an integrated and user-centric physical, mental, emotional, social, and environmental health profile, delivered via a mobile-friendly app. The medically-endorsed, scientifically-validated, evidenced-based ShaeWellness technology and accompanying educational modules use advanced epigenetic analysis and AI technology to assess and deliver unique user insights and relays customised behaviour change support to each individual user. ShaeWellness technology is currently being used in over 120 countries by medical experts, corporate clients, and corporate wellness practitioners alike.

What is “epigenetics” and how does it relate to health and wellbeing?

Your DNA is your virtually unchanging blueprint. It holds the information on how to create every reaction and response within your body. Genes are small segments of the DNA that code for the specific production of molecules, that when produced, create a change in the body, which is called a change in phenotype. The science of epigenetics is the study of the activity ‘on’ or ‘outside of’ genes. Epigenetics explains the external modifications that lead to an activation or deactivation of a gene. Your phenotype is the end result of all the different gene activations that have occurred during your life. Genes activate based on the environment around the body. The body responds to the environment, i.e. any given change in the environment will create a gene or genes to activate in order to help the body adjust and survive based on the new information it has received about the environment. In short, your behaviours and environment – such as diet, exercise, sleep, where you spend your time, social activity – can cause changes that affect the way your genes work.

What technology do I need to be involved?

You will need a smartphone to access both the free ShaeWellness app and WhatsApp. The challenge is run through the ShaeWellness app. You will be able to access 1:1 health coaching via WhatsApp or text message and team group coaching support via WhatsApp. You will be invited to join an on-boarding session, weekly check in calls, and a celebration call after the challenge concludes, all via Microsoft Teams, and you can join via a computer or your mobile regardless of whether you have Microsoft Teams. You will need to provide the mobile number you use with WhatsApp as part of the registration process. If you haven’t downloaded WhatsApp, you are encouraged to do this before registering. You can stop using WhatsApp at any time. WhatsApp is not controlled or monitored by Bupa. Participants using WhatsApp are participating of their own accord, are responsible for information they share, and the conversations are protected and governed by WhatsApp Terms and Conditions. Information of a commercially sensitive nature should not be shared. ADF Health Services and DVA – due to security requirements, you must not download WhatsApp onto a Bupa-supplied phone. If you wish to use WhatsApp, please only use your personal phone.

Are points awarded to individuals, or each team?

Points are accumulated by each Team member. These contribute to your Team’s final points tally.

What is the time commitment?

The challenge is designed to be tailor-made for every individual, so the ‘time commitment’ is really about incorporating new or adjusted habits and activities into your daily routine, as suggested by your profile. To help you get the most out of the challenge, be aware there is a 30mins  – Demystifying Epigenetics and Challenge Overview Info Session; 45mins on-boarding session; 20mins to create your unique avatar in the Shae app; 1 x 45mins live call each week over 5 weeks; 1 x 30mins Awards call. Your Challenge support includes accessing the app as often as you like; access to on-demand 1:1 health coaching via Whatsapp or text; group support with your Challenge Team via Whatsapp; daily notifications via your app; and daily support emails. All designed to support your best 30 health challenge experience.

I interact with customers / patients as part of my role. Can I get involved?

Yes you can! Of course, customers and patients are still your priority. Each day in the ShaeWellness app you will see ‘Daily Routine’ which will guide you with healthy choices and activities to optimise your physical and mental health, unique to you. If you can’t easily access your phone during the day, take the time to check out the Daily Routine before you start your work day. You will also receive notifications throughout the day from the ShaeWellness app, and your coach on WhatsApp/text message and challenge team on WhatsApp. So, you may choose to catch up on the Challenge during breaks, or before and after work.

What if I can’t attend the on-boarding session or the weekly sessions?

There will be different time options, so Challengers can choose what works best for them. Check your calendars for the Weekly live call options on Monday – 1pm AEDT and 5pm AEDT. All sessions will be recorded and posted here on this webpage to catch up on if it’s just not possible to attend at the scheduled time.

What sort of information will I be asked to provide?

ShaeWellness will be asking for certain information in order to create your profile and unique avatar. You will be asked to take two full-length photos of yourself, one front on and one side profile. You will also complete a questionnaire about your family history, health, your lifestyle and environment. This is information provided to ShaeWellness and Bupa does not have access to this data. In order to be able to participate in the challenge, you will be required to accept the ShaeWellness privacy policy. For more information on how ShaeWellness handles your personal information, you may wish to read its Privacy Policy, available here.

This data will be used to determine winners of the challenge and may help guide future opportunities. Bupa does not have access to the personal information that you provide as part of the challenge.

What information will participants have access to?

Challengers will have access to their own personal profile created inside the app via photo scans, surveys or wearables, as well as insights generated by ShaeWellness. This will be accessible inside each challenger’s mobile application. You will learn your HealthTypeTM – one of six psycho-social profiling categories similar to a personality profile, built upon deeper science than just psychology. Challengers can learn the HealthType of others in the challenge to apply healthy social and interpersonal insights. Once the challenge is finished, this information will not be available, so make the most of it while you can!
