As tools for stratifying likely candidates for care management and barometers of future healthcare costs, health risk assessments/appraisals (HRAs) are data gold mines for health plans and employers. Why then, do so many healthcare organizations still struggle to attain desired HRA completion rates?

Proven strategies for raising participation in HRA initiatives are highlighted in Health Risk Assessments: From Participation to Payoffs in Risk Reduction and Health Outcomes, a 30-page special report based on a 2006 audio conference sponsored by the Healthcare Intelligence Network (HIN). In this report, HIN's contributing presenters discuss using the HRA as a tool to correlate lifestyle with lab results, build integrated systems, develop communications that create a corporate culture of wellness and provide incentives that have been proven to increase participation.

The results are more effective interventions, reduced costs and a healthier workforce.

Featured in this special report are contributions from Dr. Raj Lakhanpal, president and CEO of HealthAtoZ, and Lynette Phillips, director of population health support for Healthways. This report also includes an analysis of a recent HIN survey on how the healthcare industry is using HRAs to identify risk before they become costly realities.
