Populytics, Inc., a Lehigh Valley population health management and data analytics firm and wholly owned subsidiary of Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN), has 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 exacting criteria for delivery and improvement.
Populytics is the only company headquartered in Pennsylvania to receive the Accreditation. The firm was also NCQA Accredited in Health and Wellness Promotion in 2015.
NCQA’s Wellness and Health Promotion evaluations use industry-leading, evidence-based standards to assess key areas of health promotion, such as 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.
“This Accreditation helps us differentiate ourselves in a competitive market,” says Kristin Behler, MPH, MCHES®, Director, Health Promotion and Wellness. “The NCQA seal is the strongest sign that a full-service wellness program also delivers high value.”
Populytics’ BeneFIT Corporate Wellness programs range from individualized health coaching, health fairs and screenings, to specialty services like Tobacco Cessation (BeneQUIT), administered by a Certified Tobacco Treatment Specialist. Man programs include an online wellness portal, 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.
