The economic burden of modifiable health risks and chronic conditions continues to mount as research demonstrates the impact of unhealthy lifestyles on medical costs, lost productivity, quality of life and longevity. For this reason, it’s critical to identify health risks, raise awareness, and intervene accordingly. A scientifically validated health assessment is a logical first step in this process.
The Wellvation health assessment is an online risk appraisal that uses a question set and scoring algorithms developed by Mayo Clinic to assess health risks. The question set is rooted in evidence-based guidelines, Mayo Clinic expertise and leading medical research. Secure and confidential, it takes minutes to complete – but captures data essential for evaluating individual and population health.
Armed with this data, organizations can establish a baseline risk profile, design an intervention strategy, track health status over time, and measure the impact of health initiatives. Most importantly, the health assessment’s true promise lies in its ability to drive engagement through a personalized wellness plan that seamlessly integrates with tools and resources most relevant to participants.
