WalkStyles Inc., a company that manages the health and wellness website icountwellness.com, has signed a deal with Johns Hopkins HealthCare to license multimedia information for the iCount Wellness website. WalkStyles is based in Irvine and operates the iCount Wellness website as a subscription service for companies that wish to create healthy living programs for their employees and improve their efficiency.

The company’s two-year agreement means that experts from Johns Hopkins Hospital and Health System, along with healthcare faculty from Johns Hopkins University, will write and develop interactive content for the iCount Wellness website. This will include an information module called the Johns Hopkins Wellness corner, which will feature topical, interactive online chats, monthly video blog posts, and video commentaries.

WalkStyles is one of the first corporate wellness programs to sign a health information licensing agreement with the Johns Hopkins entities.

“Johns Hopkins is a very selective licensor of health content,” said WalkStyles CEO Sue Parks. “iCount Wellness is proud to feature their health information. The content and interactive opportunities provided by Johns Hopkins will bring great value to our effort to help our clients and their employees lead healthier and more vibrant lives.”
