ORLANDO, Fla., March 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Americans soon will have a new daily pulse of their individual and collective health and well-being -- The Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index(SM) -- announced today by Gallup chairman and CEO Jim Clifton, and Healthways (Nasdaq: HWAY) president and CEO Ben R. Leedle, Jr. The exclusive 25-year strategic relationship between Gallup and Healthways resulted from their membership in former House Speaker Newt Gingrich's Center for Health Transformation.

Data collection for the Index will be based on 1,000 daily surveys which Gallup polling experts began conducting in January and which will continue throughout the 25-year term of the agreement. Armed with this unprecedented depth of information, leaders across government and business will be able to collaboratively and more effectively address the health, wellness and prevention needs of their population. Similarly, business leaders will be better guided in implementing programs to unlock the productivity dollars currently being lost to health-related causes.

The research and methodology underlying the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index is based on the World Health Organization (WHO) definition of health as "not only the absence of infirmity and disease but also a state of physical, mental and social well-being."
