BOSTON (PRWEB) November 11, 2017
MeYou Health (MYH) announced today that its MYH Survey, a next-generation health and wellness assessment, has received National Committee of Quality Assurance (NCQA) Wellness & Health Promotion Certification. NCQA Certification is an indication that a wellness and health promotion program has passed a rigorous review in a specific area: health appraisal, self-management tools, or health coaching. The standards are intended to help organizations achieve the highest level of performance possible, increase healthy behavior change in eligible individuals, and create an environment of continuous improvement.
Margaret E. O’Kane, President of NCQA:
“I congratulate MeYou Health for distinguishing itself by earning Wellness & Health Promotion Certification. This achievement signals to employers that MeYou Health is organized and ready to improve workforce health. Savvy employers know the health and wellbeing of their workforce is a critical asset.”
MeYou Health Survey Delivers Personalized Results to Employees
The MYH Survey implements the MYH OpenHRA, a standards-based health risk question set and scoring logic that combines publicly available patient reported outcome measures (PRO-Ms) to create a single instrument. The survey covers the highest priority health conditions and health behaviors, and uses dynamic tailoring to provide two-part online feedback that is customized, relevant, and engaging.
Participants receive a comprehensive report and immediate, personalized recommendations about which high-priority health issues to tackle. The results are used to drive people directly into proven MYH interventions that help employees walk more (Walkadoo), live healthier each day (Daily Challenge), and quit smoking (QuitNet).
Nathan Cobb, MD, MeYou Health Chief Medical Officer:
“For decades, health risk appraisals have been proprietary instruments, generating their own custom data sets that couldn’t be compared across organizations, or often even within an organization. By leveraging a set of standardized and openly available PRO-Ms, we let any organization align themselves with national standards – and save money.”
New MeYou Health OpenHRA To Be Released in Q1 2018
The MYH Survey is immediately available to clients who want to replace existing, proprietary HRAs. Additionally, client organizations can extract or embed individual measures, without license fees, across their organization to standardize on a single set of measures and data points. MYH will be releasing the OpenHRA under a Creative Commons license in Q1 2018 for use by other organizations without licensing fees.
