ConvergenceHealth, an application software provider that develops and markets Internet-based consumer health information platforms, and vielife, a global leader of health and performance management solutions, have formed an alliance to help people make better health decisions. The two organizations bring together scientifically proven assessments and health technology tools to provide action-focused information that helps empower individuals to improve their health.
"Together, vielife and ConvergenceHealth can help health plans and self-insured benefit plans measure and manage the health risks of their members," said Mike Beason, managing director, vielife. "By giving people the information and tools they need to improve their health, we also help employers reduce costs and improve employee performance."
Employers are able to run powerful, aggregate reports on an incremental basis, to track the progress of their workforce health status. This tool and how ConvergenceHealth and vielife use it jointly, allows employers to understand the impact that a health & wellness program can have on improving and managing their absence related costs among others.
When consumers take a vielife health risk assessment (HRA) to assess their health regarding issues like sleep, stress, nutrition, or physical activity, they receive a personalized status and recommendation report. ConvergenceHealth's award-winning health and wellness content, tools and services will be located at the foundation of the behavior change recommendations included in the report. Consumers can also click to relevant ConvergenceHealth information at any time during their assessment.
"The vielife HRA helps people identify and focus on their health risks," said Jay Handline, ConvergenceHealth principal and CMO. "That provides an opportunity for ConvergenceHealth to deliver them the award-winning health and wellness content, tools and services they need to make better decisions about managing those risks. We are pleased to be a part of that solution."
