BeneFIT’s workplace wellness program earns perfect score
Populytics, Inc., a Lehigh Valley population health management and data analytics firm and wholly owned subsidiary of Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN), has once again been accredited in Wellness and Health Promotion by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). This Accreditation is directed to BeneFIT Corporate WellnessSM, the workplace wellness arm of Populytics, and is granted to organizations whose wellness and health promotion programs have met strict criteria for delivery and improvement.
The BeneFIT program received NCQA Accreditation four times in a row (2013, 2015, 2017, and 2019). The team once again earned a perfect score, achieving all possible points.
“BeneFIT has received NCQA Accreditation consistently over the last six years, signaling that our full-service program delivers high value services,” says Kristin Behler, MPH, MCHES®, Director, Health Promotion and Wellness. “We proudly display the NCQA seal, which indicates that our services are quality, evidence-based programs in a market that has become flooded with corporate wellness programs that may not be up to par.”
In reviewing industry candidates, NCQA Wellness and Health Promotion evaluations use industry-leading, evidence-based standards to assess key areas of health promotion. These include how wellness programs are implemented in the workplace, how services like coaching empower participants to boost health, and how private health information is protected. Accredited status is especially useful in allowing employers to make informed comparisons when choosing among several wellness vendors.
Populytics’ BeneFIT Corporate Wellness programs range from individualized health coaching, health screenings, and incentive management, to specialty services like Tobacco Cessation (BeneQUIT) and cognition-based weight management. Many programs include online wellness portal access, consultative services, and reporting, and are available to all employers, regardless of the company’s size, health insurance provider, or plan.
The National Committee on Quality Assurance is a private, non-profit organization dedicated to improving health care quality. NCQA accredits and certifies a wide range of health care organizations. It also recognizes clinicians and practices in key areas of performance.
