GuideWell Connect and Onlife Health Achieve NCQA Accreditation

GuideWell Connect and Onlife Health (Onlife) each recently received a three-year accreditation with the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). This was the first year that GuideWell Connect applied for the designation. Onlife has maintained its accreditation by NCQA since 2009.

NCQA Accreditation involves a rigorous review of the key functions wellness and health promotion (WHP) organizations perform. The review focuses on areas of interest to consumers and employers.

This includes how wellness programs are implemented in the workplace, how services such as health coaching are provided to help eligible individuals develop skills to make healthy choices, and how sensitive health information of eligible individuals is properly safeguarded.

“We are extremely proud to have earned this highly coveted NCQA Accreditation,” said Mark McConnell, CEO, GuideWell Connect, Onlife Health, and PopHealthCare. “This designation is an affirmation to our clients that Onlife and GuideWell Connect meets and exceeds the highest evidence-based standards for wellness and health promotion.”

NCQA purposely sets their standards high to encourage wellness and health organizations to continually enhance their quality.

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.
