|Health Risk Assessment|
At It Starts With Me we go beyond the typical Health Risk Assessment by including some of the same questions about the same health issues that most physicians would want to know more about. We build our questions around body systems and the appropriate tests for each individual. We then tie that information to objective biometric findings, and build a bigger picture from that information. We feel that this provides a much more complete and accurate snapshot of an individual’s health and the overall health of a company.
In wellness circles, a Health Risk Assessment (HRA) is a list of health questions about everything from how many servings of fruits and starches you eat a week to inquiries about seat belt usage and smoke alarms in the house. Employees are encouraged to complete the HRA, sometimes with financial incentives, and then the employer gets an aggregate report from which suggested health improvement activities are identified for the company. HRAs are oftentimes promoted by those in the wellness industry as being the essential linchpin from which all other company wellness efforts & cost savings begin. We believe that HRAs are a small piece of a much larger picture, a picture that ISWM can provide to you.
At ISWM, we expand upon the same sets of questions that your physician would ask. We build them around body systems and the appropriate tests for each individual. We then tie that information to objective biometric findings, and build a bigger picture from that information. We feel that this provides a much more complete and accurate snapshot of an individual’s health and of the overall health of a company.
It is also important to note that while most HRAs integrate only 4 or 5 objective lab values into each person’s individual report (eg. Cholesterol, LDL, HDL, Triglycerides, & Blood Glucose), ISWM’s Personal Health Reports incorporate ALL lab values and biometric data. This provides each health screening attendee a much more complete analysis of his or her health.
