A comprehensive wellness program designed to help employees live fuller, healthier lifes. This encompasses a Health Risk Assessment followed up with Healthy Living Programs along with the ability to incorporate a Rewards System.
The Personal Wellness Advisor begins with an online Health Risk Assessment (HRA), where the member answers questions and enters information about their medical history, biometrics (if known), lifestyle, diet, and readiness to change. The output of the HRA provides recommendations the member should consider making, and determines which Healthy Living Programs the employee should be enrolled in.
After completing the Health Risk Assessment, the member will be recommended to complete one or more Healthy Living programs. Each Healthy Living Program is six weeks in length, and gives the user a "virtual personal coach" through the duration of each program. Healthy Living Programs cover a wide range of needs, including nutrition, weight loss, stress management, several disease fighting programs, and others. As modules are completed and activities are logged, reward points are awarded.
