NCQA Accreditation is a voluntary review process and is granted to organizations with excellent programs that meet or exceed NCQA's rigorous standards. NCQA standards are designed to encourage organizations to continuously enhance the quality of their programs and allow employers and health plans to make informed comparisons.
Wellness & Health Promotion Accreditation 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.
NCQA standards are purposely set high to encourage wellness and health promotion organizations to strive for continuous enhancement of their quality.
"This accomplishment serves as both validation of the exceptional coaching provided by our team of clinical specialists on a daily basis as well as confirmation of Nurtur's ongoing commitment to quality," stated
Wellness & Health Promotion Accreditation surveys include rigorous on-site and off-site evaluations of 12 standards. A team of experts conduct Accreditation Surveys and a national oversight committee of physicians analyzes the team's findings and assigns an accreditation.
