DALLAS, June 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Viverae, Inc., a workplace wellness provider, launches comprehensive clinical updates rooted in validated data and research, and designed to reflect the way people live. These updates provide support for employers to ensure they accurately evaluate the health of their employees as it directly impacts healthcare costs.
The new clinical updates allow Viverae's proprietary application, MyViverae™, to better recognize health risks, recommend preventive care, and identify health conditions while driving member engagement. The criteria conform to the latest national guidelines recommended to clinicians when assessing patients set forth by national health organizations including the Centers for Disease Control, American Heart Association® and National Institutes of Health. These guidelines impact blood pressure, cholesterol measurement, blood sugar and body composition.
"We're still recommending aggressively addressing individual risk factors such as cholesterol and blood pressure, but in a manner consistent with what recently published science suggests are currently measurable risk estimators," said Boyd Lyles, M.D., Viverae's Chief Medical Officer and Chairman of the Viverae Medical Advisory Board. "The new guidelines look more globally at how to best minimize the future occurrence and impact of chronic and potentially disabling diseases, such as heart attack, stroke, diabetes, and preventable or early-stage detectable cancers."
Additionally, several important areas of Viverae's offering were updated to remain current with updates from national standards groups and continue to comply with stringent National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) standards:
- The Member Health Assessment (MHA)
- Recommended ranges of the Biometric Screening
- Preventive care compliance updates
- Health condition identification
Viverae holds two NCQA certifications, Health Information Products: Support for Healthy Living, and Wellness & Health Promotion: Health Appraisals. Viverae has maintained these credentials since 2011 by going through a rigorous recertification process every 24 months.
"The NCQA certifications are a validation of Viverae's programs," said Jeff Brizzolara, Ph.D., M.P.H., Chief Clinical Officer. "These credentials provide assurance that we have a proven track record and demonstrate our high level of compliance and dedication."
