Limeade earns NCQA Wellness & Health Promotion Certification for health appraisals
Today Limeade, an employee engagement technology company that inspires change in health, well-being and performance, earned the Wellness & Health Promotion Certification from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) in the Health Appraisal category. This certification indicates excellence not only for the implementation of engagement programs, but also for the development of high-touch services and handling of sensitive health information. Limeade previously earned NCQA Certification in 2013.
“We focus on delighting our customers and engaging users, which includes giving them confidence that our products stand up to tough industry standards, such as NCQA certification,” said Vice President of Product Management, Justin Jed. “We relentlessly push our technology platform to improve health, well-being and performance, while making sure we never lose sight of securely protecting health information.”
“I congratulate Limeade for distinguishing itself by earning the Wellness & Health Promotion Certification. This achievement signals to employers that Limeade is organized and ready to improve workforce health,” explained Margaret E. O’Kane, President of NCQA. “Savvy employers know that the health and well-being of their workforce is a critical asset.”
To award the Wellness & Health Promotion Certification, NCQA comprehensively evaluates key areas of health promotion, including 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.
Limeade improves health, well-being and performance all in one platform. Critical to its NCQA certification, Limeade uses results from client experience surveys and evidence-based testing of its health assessment to evaluate performance and continually improve its program and service. Limeade patented the first comprehensive well-being assessment in 2007.
“We’re proud to be NCQA certified because it reflects our commitment to our customers and our mission of improving well-being in the world,” said Jed.
