SEATTLE, Feb. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Vera Whole Health is the first direct-to-employer on-site clinic provider in the United States to earn a Certificate of Validation by the Care Innovations™ Validation Institute. This endorsement substantiates Vera's claims that its on-site clinics reduce overall healthcare spending for employers, justifies Vera's 100 percent money-back guarantee, and recognizes Vera for its sound population health outcomes.
"The Validation Institute gives organizations unbiased, third-party evaluation, which shows their customers, prospects and partners that their results stand up to rigorous scrutiny," said Linda Riddell, MS, the Institute's strategic initiatives manager. "Vera has proven that it adheres to the highest standards of valid measurement of outcomes, contractual promises and other claims. The Validation Institute awards validation only to organizations that meet these standards."
Vera submitted its health and cost outcomes measurement methodology for review by the Validation Institute, which uses independent scientists and statisticians to compare actual results to a properly estimated trend. The analysis verified that Vera's combination of on-site medical care, health coaching, sustainable culture change and robust analytics correlated to lower medical claims costs for employers.
"Certification from the Validation Institute endorses Vera for helping companies maintain healthy workforces while keeping their bottom lines measurably healthy, as well," said Ryan Schmid, president and CEO of Vera. "We have always strived for the highest standards in demonstrating the benefits of our services, particularly in how we show potential savings to our partners, so we are proud to have earned this recognition by unbiased industry experts."
