Bravo Wellness signs on to support Concentras wellness initiatives

10/21/2010

Concentra, a national leader in employer health care programs, has entered into an agreement with Bravo Wellness to provide select components of its health and wellness strategy. The agreement allows Concentra to enhance its wellness strategy with the ability to track and measure key metrics effectively and efficiently.

"Bravo Wellness has demonstrated unique expertise in the area of results-based wellness incentives," said Chris Vaerewyck, Vice President of Human Resources Services for Concentra. "The ability to track biometric results, progressive accomplishments, compliance with coaching programs, and all related appeal-documentation was an important aspect in selecting a compliance organization. Bravo administers the details and sends us exactly what we need."

Jim Pshock, Bravo´s Founder and President, said, "Concentra has incredible experience with wellness screenings and laboratory services, and offers very robust wellness resources to its employees. The evolution to a results-based incentive program is a natural next step, and Bravo Wellness is honored to be selected as a strategic ally."

Concentra incorporates healthy living into its employee benefit strategy. Concentra´s 4100 benefit plan participants have historically earned incentives to complete a biometric screening and personal wellness profile. Going forward, additional incentives will be made available to colleagues who demonstrate desirable results or make progress in waist circumference, blood pressure, glucose, and cholesterol measurements; as well as tobacco use. The strategic agreement with Bravo Wellness will incorporate state-of-the-art technology to track results, administer appeals and mark the completion of "reasonable alternative programs" as required by federal law.
