INDIANAPOLIS, Feb. 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Activate Healthcare's on-site and near-site health clinic business has been recognized with a 2019 Best in KLAS award in the payer solutions-worksite health services category against seven of its top competitors. Over the past year Activate has been top-rated by KLAS in multiple measures based on ongoing performance. The Best in KLAS Award is given once each year to the top performer in its service category in recognition of outstanding efforts to help health care organizations in their quest to deliver quality patient care.
"Best in KLAS is about raising the bar for health care technology," said KLAS President Adam Gale. "It's providers and payers demanding better performance, usability and interoperability. Ultimately, Best in KLAS is about giving providers and payers the tools they need to facilitate superior care and improved outcomes."
KLAS Research is a health care-focused insights company providing the industry with accurate, honest and impartial research on the services used by providers and payers worldwide. In 2018 KLAS conducted a thorough review of the "Worksite Health Service Provider" industry based on extensive interviews with 86 employers that use worksite health services. Results were shared for eight leading worksite health provider companies in the inaugural Best in KLAS report on worksite health services.
Activate Healthcare, which was recently acquired by Paladina Health, scored highest against seven competitors for loyalty, product, relationship and value. Rankings were determined based on detailed interviews with both Activate customers and customers of its competitors.
Activate Healthcare clients cited "absolutely phenomenal" service and customized programs as differentiators. One client said, "There is no better provider of on-site wellness services. Activate Healthcare delivers better than many national and local players." Another agreed, saying, "They have saved a number of our employees' lives."
"Being named Best in KLAS for worksite health services is a testament to our mission to deliver the highest quality care to every customer we serve," said Debra Geihsler, principal and co-founder of Activate Healthcare.
"We are honored to receive recognition for our commitment to engaging people in their own health while successfully reducing health care costs for both employer and employee," said Peter Dunn, principal and co-founder of Activate Healthcare.
Together with Paladina Health, Activate Healthcare serves more than 170,000 patients across nearly 100 clinics in 18 states, making the combined organization the nation's second-largest provider of value-based primary care.
"Activate Healthcare's KLAS recognition is well-earned and directly aligns with their esteemed reputation in the healthcare services industry," said Chris Miller, chief executive officer of Paladina Health and Activate Healthcare. "This distinction further validates their focus on providing high quality care to the patients they serve. We're thrilled to join forces with the Activate team."
Activate clients see an average return on investment of $1.60 for every dollar invested in their worksite clinic, reducing total costs by as much as 25 percent as a direct result of improving patient health.
