MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- RedBrick Health, a fast-growing leader in consumer health engagement and behavior change solutions, announced today it has earned Wellness & Health Promotion certifications from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).
The Wellness & Health Promotion (WHP) Certification from NCQA recognizes organizations that meet quality requirements for health appraisal and self-management tools. RedBrick Compass™ and RedBrick Journeys® meet these requirements, helping client organizations seeking NCQA accreditation by ensuring they satisfy Member Connection standards in these categories.
RedBrick Compass provides a dynamic, visually rich experience that can be accessed via web, tablet or mobile phone, overcoming engagement barriers common to typical health assessments. Participants are guided through an easy to understand, personally relevant series of questions that produce an evidence-based portrait of their health. Compass enables consumers to update their assessment at any time during the year to refresh their personal recommendations.
RedBrick Journeys help consumers form new health habits by providing dynamic, individualized pathways made up of small step choices within a game-like framework. Journeys have been shown to generate frequent engagement as well as behavioral and biometric outcomes.
"I congratulate RedBrick Health for distinguishing itself by earning Wellness & Health Promotion Certification. This achievement signals to employers that RedBrick Health is organized and ready to improve workforce health," explained Margaret E. O'Kane, President of NCQA. "Savvy employers know that the health and wellbeing of their workforce is a critical asset."

"Our product innovation team works hard every day to create experiences that are compelling and engaging for consumers, and at the same time evidence-based and impactful in helping clients improve population health."
