Medical Fitness Association Outcome Studies
The Medical Fitness Association (MFA) is dedicated to serving its members as they advance the mission and margin goals of the medical fitness & wellness center industry. The MFA Outcomes committee assists its member facilities in strategically distinguishing themselves in the markets they serve. There are reciprocal benefits to hospitals and medically integrated fitness facilities when attention is brought to the superior outcomes of MFA facilities in treating chronic diseases with exercise. The health of communities is strengthened and facilities benefit from increased clinical referrals, improved levels of clinical integration, better member retention and enhanced financial performance.
The MFA Outcomes Committee is recruiting MFA member facilities to participate in three outcomes studies which opened in August, 2016.
The MFA appreciates the efforts and support from the pilot program facilities. These dedicated health care transformation leaders are pioneering the way for all MFA members to make a difference in the health of our communities and the health of our businesses.
We need the support of your senior management and clinical leaders. Data acquisition is essential to our success with timely and compliant pre, post and monthly outcomes reporting.
These are not designed to be clinical studies that require Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval as they do not present any degree of risk that warrants IRB scrutiny and no personally identifiable health information will be shared with the study sponsors. Aggregate data will be collected and distributed as comparative benchmark indicators.
