Assessments

Getting your employees engaged from the beginning.

The program begins with a comprehensive Personal Health Assessment (PHA) in which we assess each employee’s cardiovascular health risks and lifestyle risks. The insight gained from the PHA is available in real-time and used by our wellness nurses at the point of screening, when each employee receives a face to face coaching session to review biometric results and lifestyle risks, establish health goals, identify strategies and recommend programs to meet their specific health goals.

The PHA consists of three integrated steps:

  1. Questionnaire: Using research validated screening tools we are able to identify lifestyle and behavioral health risks specific to each employee.
  2. Biometric Screening: A one-on-one session with a wellness nurse to measure values such as total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, triglycerides, blood pressure, blood glucose, BMI, heart rate, height, weight and abdominal girth.
  3. Biometric Health Coaching: A personalized discussion with a wellness nurse about results and health goals, allowing the employee to receive tailored recommendations and referrals to appropriate lifestyle/condition management coaching programs.

Personalization

Individualized to every organization. And every employee.

At UR Medicine Employee Wellness, we know that every company is different. That’s why we don’t take the “one size fits all” approach. Your organization’s goals are important to us, and we work with you to design a program that supports them.

We maintain this philosophy when coaching your employees. Each person is different, with different goals and different challenges. Our coaches give employees the freedom to choose how they want to improve their health. When your employees have strategies that are tailored to their needs and aligned with their motivation to change, research shows that they are more likely to make a real commitment to their health.

We also make it easy for employees to take control of their health by providing a personalized online wellness portal.

Through the wellness portal, your employees will have access to:

  • Individualized wellness summary of results with lifestyle recommendations
  • Instant and trended viewing of biometric screening results
  • Resources including helpful videos, articles, tips and educational content
  • Interactive online educational modules
  • Recommendations to specific programs offered by employer

Integration

Making it easy to get comprehensive care.

Your employees’ health is our top priority. This includes ensuring they get the best care from their primary care provider.

With the employee’s consent, we will share wellness data with his/her primary care provider. This data includes biometric screening results, as well as condition management enrollment and completion updates.

Cross referrals allow PCP referral into programs for eligible employees.

If employee does not have a designated PCP we can help identify and facilitate the designation of a provider.

Engagement

Higher levels of engagement mean better health outcomes.

Having a wellness program is not enough. If your employees aren’t engaged, change won’t happen. So engagement isn’t something we take lightly.

An organizations commitment and leadership support of employee wellness is an important factor is participation. For our part, we build on that commitment by using demonstrated engagement strategies.

  • General and targeted communication strategy using venues appropriate for your organization is developed to promote program awareness.
  • A personalized wellness portal is provided to each employee and houses their trended results of their health assessment along with specific program recommendations and enrollment options. The portal also includes online resources vetted by our clinicians including articles, websites, apps, and videos to help inform and educate employees about their health.
  • Wellness nurses identify and can enroll eligible employees into appropriate coaching programs during the personal coaching session provided at the time of biometric screening.
