MediKeeper, a technology company that designs customizable wellness portals, is pleased to announce that the MediKeeper Health Risk Assessment (HRA) has earned the Wellness and Health Promotion certification from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) for 2017.
MediKeeper met NCQA’s stringent requirements for WHP 5 Health Appraisals, validating our HRA as an industry-leading solution that uses evidence-based standards to assess key areas of health promotion. WHP Certification helps companies make informed comparisons among wellness vendors, eliminating guesswork and adding confidence to a selection.
“MediKeeper is proud to be awarded NCQA WHP certification as it is validation of our commitment to quality and delivering a product that improves population health and reduces healthcare costs. Our NCQA certification reflects our relentless focus on protecting privacy and helping individuals manage their health” said David Ashworth, CEO of MediKeeper.
MediKeeper’s Health Risk Assessment is included in both the customizable wellness end enterprise portals, but can be used as a standalone product. Once users have filled out a detailed questionnaire about their lifestyle, demographics, and personal medical history, the Health Risk Assessment provides users with individualized feedback plus suggestions for ways to lower their risk. Based on this information, administrators can make informed decisions about their wellness programming.
The National Committee for Quality Assurance is a private, 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving health care quality. Their seal is a widely-recognized symbol of quality. Organizations incorporating the seal into advertising and marketing materials must first pass a rigorous, comprehensive review and must annually report on their performance. For consumers and employers, the seal is a reliable indicator that an organization is well-managed and delivers high quality care and service. NCQA has helped to build consensus around important health care quality issues by working with large employers, policymakers, doctors, patients and health plans to decide what’s important, how to measure it, and how to promote improvement.
