Momentum Health Launches to Deliver Health-Contingent Wellness Programs for Employers
Following a series of successful implementations at three multinational firms, Momentum Health is launching their employee-wellness program for the full marketplace at the EBN Benefits Forum and Expo in Orlando, Florida held September 30 to October 2.
Chicago, Illinois, September 29, 2015 (Newswire.com) - Momentum Health, a company dedicated to delivering health-contingent wellness programs for employers, is launching its employee health and wellness program at the EBN Benefits Forum and Expo in Orlando, Florida held September 30 to October 2. The company recently completed successful implementations at three large employers in the manufacturing, chemical, and property-management industries, and is now making their incentive-based program available to the full marketplace.
Momentum Health offers a targeted, end-to-end platform to assist employers in developing health-contingent wellness programs. The outcomes-based programming can be used to tie healthy behaviors to reduced insurance premiums, co-pays and other financial incentives. Momentum Health works directly with employees, providing both onsite visits and web-conferencing tools. The company’s expert staff includes certified health coaches, nurses, and registered dietitians.
Momentum Health provides a comprehensive, HIPAA-compliant health screening and an innovative wellness questionnaire. The company then customizes and monitors a plan to help the participant reach their health and wellness goals. The company’s health screening process is comprehensive, utilizing an in-depth blood and biometric assessment, evaluating a total of 51 individual biomarkers.
The Momentum Health screening includes an assessment of nicotine, cholesterol, glucose, triglycerides, complete blood count (CBC), chemistry and electrolyte panel. All of these biomarkers play important roles in the overall health and wellness of the individual and are necessary to assess potential health risks accurately. In addition, the screening incorporates six biometric measurements including height and weight, waist and neck circumference, body composition and blood pressure.
The results are presented to the participant in a clear and easy to understand format, showing how the results compare to the general population, and what can be done to improve the values. The report offers details on how the participant’s lifestyle-related risks for cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome affect their lives. Participants gain a wealth of knowledge that they can use to achieve a healthier future. Momentum Health also provides a Health Possibilities Questionnaire to evaluate the opportunity for improved health based on the distinct behaviors of the participant. The questionnaire analyzes lifestyle habits and determines the optimal course of action to reduce the risk of lifestyle-related illness.
Unlike a traditional HRA, Momentum Health’s survey proactively interviews the participant at different points throughout the year, drilling down on issues and barriers that the participant identified in previous sessions. Participants interact with the questionnaire via an innovative, chat-like interface, which lends itself to deeper engagement. After the screening is complete, Momentum Health takes the initiative to guide the participant toward his or her own individualized health goals. The company’s health coaches engage the participant over an extended period of time, regularly monitoring progress in order to ensure the participant meets their health goals.
“Momentum Health was born out of the desire to actively engage employees in wellness and behavioral change with coaching, wearable technology, and financial incentives,” says Michael J. Flanagan, co-founder of Momentum Health. “Traditional programs simply report back biomedical results and leave the participant without an active plan for behavioral change. Momentum Health engages employees year-round with a customized health plan, periodic re-assessments, incentives, social-networking, and health coaching.”
Momentum Health is committed to inspiring health by offering targeted wellness initiatives including an organizational health audit, health coaching, lunch and learns, webinars and onsite health clinics. Each one is professionally led and designed to boost individual health. To learn more or schedule a consultation, visit MomentumHealth.co.
