The American Health Care Health Risk Assessment (HRA) is an interactive on-line health management resource that delivers immediate user feedback, with attention to confidentiality. This dynamic wellness tool provides a member-specific evaluation and addresses health topics relevant to the individual based on his/her medical history, family history, age, sex, and current health IQ. The HRA identifies health risks among individuals and provides uniquely tailored wellness educational materials to promote healthier lifestyle choices that enable members to positively impact their well-being.
Following the completion of the American Health Care HRA, a personalized Health Status Profile is immediately generated allowing the member to view his/her current health status. Evidence-based quality measures are aligned to medical conditions and lifestyle choices particular to the member. The Health Status Profile provides quick, accurate, and convenient tracking capabilities for members to monitor their health and map the progress of their wellness efforts. Science-based evaluations, included within the HRA, target resource-intensive conditions such as obesity, cardiovascular disease, migraines, osteoporosis, asthma, and diabetes.
Additional client features include specialized population-based reporting capabilities to generate aggregate client reports and individualized assessments customized to business interests and needs. American Health Care’s client-specific solutions model the current and emerging health-related trends within the client’s organization. Early identification of these developing risks will provide the opportunity to coordinate healthcare resources to prevent realization of these risks. The HRA empowers a company with the necessary information for making educated decisions regarding its healthcare appropriations. Such improved knowledge can be used to cultivate healthier employees, resulting in a happier and more productive member population.
American Health Care has recently expanded the HRA to include a “Know Your Numbers” laboratory section. This new feature allows members to key in the results of recent blood pressure measurements and laboratory blood work (including cholesterol and blood sugar levels) to generate a more comprehensive evaluation of the member’s current health status. This additional data is then incorporated into the Health Status Profile and used to calculate a Framingham score—a projection over the next ten years as to the possible risk for developing a cardiovascular complication such as heart attack or coronary artery disease.
