Real reviews from real people with real names.
Here's what they have to say.
“Too much of health care has been over-medicalized. Patients simply don’t know what is the right amount of care because the health care systems’ typical response is 'just do more.' Quizzify enlightens employees (who will be patients) so that they can be more aware in how to manage their health and healthcare.”

"Quizzify is one of the few health education tools to not fall into the trap of actually trying to educate people directly – their eyes glaze over when you try. But people like games, they like teams and they like to have fun so Quizzify manages to teach people about health without them even knowing it."
CEO, Equity Healthcare (Blackstone Group)
"This is healthcare made fun. Even reference-based pricing can be made fun using Quizzify’s unique format. There is no better way to teach employees how to spend their money – and your money – wisely on healthcare services. A group that doesn’t use it is leaving money on the table and possibly even allowing unsuspecting employees to be harmed by overuse of questionable tests, drugs and procedures."
“We find that offering Quizzify has provided a great entry point for not only increasing employee information and awareness of health-related concerns but also providing an opportunity for on the spot conversations with co-workers about the new information they are learning. The quizzes have been enthusiastically received...” Read the full review on Workforce.com>

"Like predatory pricing, there is such a thing as 'predatory medicine,' where aggressive doctors propose or perform inappropriate tests and treatments knowing that the patient is only paying for a small portion and doesn’t understand the risks. I love what Quizzify is doing to educate employees about this."

"I'd seriously consider offering this service to my employees. The messages learned are much more likely to have a beneficial effect on people's health and on their use of the health care system than a lot of the more invasive programs being forced on employees..." Read the full review>

"Given the surge of discontent around wellness programs’ use of personal data, this is very attractive... Quizzify does not gather or require any medical data from the participant. One of its advantages is that Quizzify has very simple, plain language user agreement and game rules..."

"Wiser employees make healthier decisions. That's why we deploy Quizzify for employers who are wise about their own benefits spend—delivering health literacy through trivia-style quizzes served with a side of humor that keep employees engaged and coming back for more."
"Quizzify is a great way to provide employees with the knowledge they need to make healthier life choices, make wiser healthcare decisions, and understand their companies' benefits program. Best of all they do it in a way that is very entertaining!"
Founder and President, BenefitsAlly
"PTA was an early adopter of Quizzify as a component of our health and welfare benefits, and we provide access to both employees and spouses that choose to participate. It is a cornerstone of our education for healthcare consumerism. After having made the move to HDHP’s 8 or 9 years ago, and anointing our workforce as consumers with marginal improvement, we implemented Quizzify 3 years ago. It is educational, sometimes entertaining, and sometimes controversial in light of conventional wisdom. But, it is being utilized."
– Michael Rocheleau, Executive Vice President, PTA Plastics
"After years of sinus trouble — allergy shots, rinses, antibiotics, OTC and prescription allergy pills — the doctor ordered a CT scan of my sinuses. The results showed some obvious issues that would require surgery. I had been trying to avoid surgery, so took some months before deciding to go forward with it but did decide to do it. The doctor wanted to do another CT scan first. Remembering a Quizzify question about CT scans & radiation, I asked the doctor if a second one was really necessary. I specifically mentioned the radiation. The doctor paused then said, 'I guess probably not.' The surgery was successful — without the added CT scan, radiation, or expense."
- Dan Keith, Quizzify Program Administrator and User, It Starts With Me Health
"Quizzify has informed several decisions my husband and I have made during the past three years as we’ve been actively involved in caring for our aging parents. For example, we learned about the dangers of acid-reflux medication and we explored other ways to treat the symptoms such as raising the head of the bed with books. The tip about using applesauce to help prevent choking when taking tablets or pills was also very helpful. On a personal note, I’ve become more confident when talking with medical professionals about how frequently I should have tests and other screenings done. For example, my dentist agreed to change my dental x-ray schedule from 12 months to every 18 months."
– Michelle Spehr, Quizzify Program Administrator and User, The Benefit Services Group, Inc.
"We love Quizzify in this office... 3 out of 4 employees in the Accounting Department take the quiz and discuss the answers. All of us have learned many informative tidbits about common misconceptions in the world of medicine. We have researched some of the answers to prove they are correct because the answer was not what we thought it should be. It is a very good learning experience for all of us."
- J.F., Quizzify User, Town of Chelmsford
"After I saw the question about the Clif Bar first ingredient being “organic brown rice syrup,” I worked with the wellbeing team to remove these bars from our healthy snack supply in our offices. Previously they were a staple in every office and because they were perceived as “healthy,” people consumed them regularly."
- Nicole Fallowfield, Quizzify User, Gibson
"The dentist took a set of panorama x-rays and found nothing. He then proposed I see an oral surgeon and take the panoramas with me (which I did). The oral surgeon also saw nothing on the panoramas and suggested the CT scan. This is when I said: enough is enough, and let's wait and see if it gets better on its own, which it did. I'm glad I didn't opt for the scan. Thank you Quizzify."
- Jane Schmitz, Quizzify User, Massachusetts Interlocal Insurance Association
"I have to read a lot of documents from the beginning until the end of the day. I have always suffered from dry eyes, especially after I had my LASIK surgery…I learned through Quizzify that Opcon Eye drops have a preservative which may not be beneficial to the long term health of my eye. So I switched to natural tears and my eyes feel much better…Thanks to Quizzify, I’ve been more comfortable and my law practice has been more efficient."
- Mark Woesser, Quizzify User, Cincinnati
"My son got injured playing sports. After we had an x-ray the doctor asked us to do a CAT scan as well. I remember him saying that his treatment would not change but he made it sound like it would make his diagnosis more conclusive. I had just taken Quizzify and recall vividly the part about the amount of radiation from a CAT scan vs an X-ray and particularly the impact of that on a growing child. We opted to not do the CAT scan even though my employer would have covered part of the costs. I think back at that conversation and wonder why a CAT scan was even suggested. I recall the pressure not only from a medical professional but from coaches and others who were anxious to get my son back on the field. The knowledge I gained from taking Quizzify helped me make an unwavering decision that I never would have made otherwise. There are several items that really jumped out at me from Quizzify that have changed my behaviors but this one was memorable because I was able to apply it within weeks of taking the quiz and I made the best decision for my son. I'm confident of that."
