Driving Participation and Results in Health Risk Assessments, an April 12, 2006 audio conference on CD-ROM, examines the critical steps every organization should take to boost the number of participants who complete health risk assessments.
Health risk assessments/appraisals (HRAs) are becoming increasingly popular tools to identify individuals at high risk for chronic health conditions. These tools also serve a dual purpose of educating participants about potential lifestyle risk factors. The key challenge in an effective HRA program is getting participants to complete the HRA.
During this 90-minute audio conference, your expert panel of speakers, Dr. Raj Lakhanpal, president and CEO of HealthAtoZ and Lynette Phillips, director of population health support at Healthways, provide inside details on how to increase participation in HRAs to drive results in these predictor tools.
You will get details on:
- Driving participation rates in voluntary health risk assessments;
- Exploring the option of mandatory versus voluntary HRA completion;
- Using incentives to drive participation;
- Creating a corporate culture that supports HRAs;
- Marketing the HRA; and
- Benchmarking your HRA results.
"This conference explained practical ways of measuring health improvement progress, and how to motivate employees toward the same," said a CEO of a participating company.
"I learned steps and information to increase HRA participation for wellness programs," said an executive from a midwest Blues plan.
