Introducing change to employees is to understand their personal perceptions of health care and to evaluate what stage of behavioral change they are in. HealthYou clinicians evaluate completed health risk assessments (HRAs) or wellbeing surveys and administer onsite health screenings. Through the assessments and survey and health screenings, employees become familiar with their health care scores and understand what they need to do to improve their risk scores and health factors over time.
Employers receive and evaluate aggregate health reports outlining major areas of health risks within their employee population. The results of these reports determine next levels of targeted wellness-oriented activities for HealthYou to develop and implement.
