HealthMedia Health Risk Assessment Earns Prestigious NCQA Certification
Date:6/25/2008

ANN ARBOR, Mich., June 25 /PRNewswire/ -- HealthMedia(R), Inc.'s Succeed(TM) Health Risk Assessment (HRA) received a two-year Health Information Products (HIP) Certification from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), the most trusted source for information about health care quality. As a result, health plans that undergo NCQA Accreditation surveys will receive automatic credit for using the Succeed HRA, since responsibility for adherence to NCQA HRA standards under HIP has been delegated to HealthMedia.

Succeed measures and quantifies productivity impairment and identifies health risks by epidemiological need, stage of change, motivation, self-confidence, and barriers. As each individual navigates through the questionnaire, the question sets are dynamically changed based on the individual's response to previous questions, pinpointing measures of motivation and self-confidence. Based on each individual's evaluation, Succeed produces a 16-page individually tailored action plan around the participant's top health risks.

"Succeed is the only HRA that provides maximum value for both the health plan and the individual participant," said Ted Dacko, HealthMedia President and CEO. "As an organization committed to continuous quality improvement, this latest NCQA certification is further evidence that HealthMedia is producing online interventions that create both individual behavior change and powerful ROI for health plans."

"HIP Certification for HRAs indicates that the right tools are in place to identify and provide individuals with better care for their conditions," said NCQA President Margaret E. O'Kane. "By contracting with vendors that have earned the Certification seal, health plans and other organizations know that HealthMedia's HRA has met rigorous, evidence-based standards."
