MobileHelp(R) Honored to Receive Early Adopter Recognition in the American Heart Association's Workplace Health Achievement Index

BOCA RATON, FL --(Marketwired - October 06, 2017) - MobileHelp®, a leader in mobile Personal Emergency Response System (mPERS) and healthcare technology solutions, announced today it has received the 2017 early adopter recognition in the American Heart Association (AHA) Workplace Health Achievement Index.

The AHA Index is a science-based and evidence-informed measurement that recognizes workplace health programs. It provides employers with best practices to evaluate the quality and effectiveness of workplace health programs.

"MobileHelp is proud to receive this recognition from the American Heart Association," said Rob Flippo, CEO of MobileHelp. "We are committed to the health of our employees and want to ensure our professional setting helps them achieve their own wellness goals."

According to a Nielsen 2016 Employee Health Survey, having a comprehensively-designed and fully-implemented workplace health programs can help with job satisfaction and employee retention. The AHA Workplace Health Achievement Index gives companies a specific framework they can adopt to improve the quality and effectiveness of their programs, while learning from one another.

The Workplace Health Achievement Index scores companies both on the structure of workplace health programs and employee heart health based on the AHA's Life's Simple 7® -- seven behaviors and metrics for ideal heart health.

Research shows that improving these seven factors can lead to significant reductions in heart disease, stroke, cancer and many other health problems. In addition, people who achieve ideal cardiovascular health by age 50 have significantly lower lifetime risk of heart disease and stroke.

MobileHelp plans to further implement the Workplace Health Achievement Index guidelines as it moves into the 2018 calendar year.
