System Trackers

This article explains what each of the system trackers are, what they offer, and their relevance to specific courses (in some cases). To see information on how to create trackers and use the tracker tool to manage trackers for a portal, see this article.


Clients can use the tracker tool to create their own trackers, but there are trackers that already exist in Engagement Rx: these are called system trackers. System trackers can be enabled or disabled at the portal level.


To view trackers and their current status within a portal, go to the Settings section of the admin, select the Portal Management module, and choose the portal. Then select "Trackers" from the left-side menu:

System Trackers


System trackers are those that already exist in the Engagement Rx solution. You can enable or disable these trackers from the main tracker table by clicking on the actions column for the row of any tracker.


Weight Tracker


Users can record their body weight, time of day, and mood with this tracker. This tracker raises mindfulness and, over time, can reveal trends in weight gain or loss related to time of year and/or personal circumstances.


This is most applicable to users in the LivingLean (food), LivingFit (exercise), and Healthy Weight (microlearning) courses.


Blood Glucose Tracker


Users can record their blood glucose levels and view reports. This tracker is most applicable to users in the LivingWell course (diabetes management) who might want to check their blood sugar levels often. Users record their blood glucose levels and when they were taken as it relates to the closest meal time.


Reports show users a history of blood glucose readings in the selected time range and can be filtered related to meals, times of day, and snacking habits. This tracker can help to raise mindfulness and awareness which can reinforce the healthy lifestyle habits that all Engagement Rx courses focus on.


Blood Pressure Tracker


Users can record their blood pressure and view their reports based on times of day the readings were taken. The tracker can help users establish patterns in higher and lower readings, particularly as they relate to specific times of day. Reports can be filtered by:



  • First rise

  • Morning

  • Afternoon

  • Evening

  • Before exercise

  • After exercise


Since blood pressure can be negatively affected by virtually any unhealthy habitual behavior, this tracker is applicable to users in all courses.


Cholesterol Tracker


Users can record their cholesterol levels for any and/or all of four fields: HDL, LDL, Triglycerides, and Total Cholesterol.


This tracker keeps a history of the user’s cholesterol levels, reveals trends over time, and can establish mindfulness and awareness. Unhealthy cholesterol levels can be an issue for users in any course, but are especially relevant to users in the LivingWell course (diabetes management).


A1C Tracker


A1C is a measurement of average blood sugar readings over the previous two to three months and it gives a general view of how diabetes management has been in that time span. This tracker is most applicable to participants in the LivingWell course (diabetes management) but can be useful to anyone who wants to keep an eye on their levels in an effort to prevent diabetes or reverse prediabetes.


Sleep Tracker


The sleep tracker can be linked to a member's wearable (or data can be entered manually) and collects a range of sleep-related data:



  • Go-to-bed time

  • Time in bed awake

  • Number of times waking during the night

  • Wake up time


Although the sleep tracker is particularly relevant for members taking the LivingWellRested program, it can be a useful tool for any user who wants to improve their sleep and keep a record of their sleep-related habits and sleep efficiency.
