Health Assessments for Reduced Risk and Real ROI:
Innovations, Interventions and Incentives

The health assessment is the gateway to comprehensive population health management.
More than 83 percent of companies say they're using a health assessment in 2008
to measure health status in employees, according to a recent survey conducted
by Watson Wyatt and the National Business Group on Health — an 18 percent
increase over 2007.

The aggregate data gleaned from the health assessment provides a roadmap for
employers and health plans to deliver health promotion and disease management
interventions to targeted individuals — with the goal of improving clinical
and financial outcomes. In Health Assessments for Reduced Risk and Real
ROI: Innovations, Interventions and Incentives
, industry experts describe
the rudiments of a well-executed health risk assessment (HRA) program — one
that is science-based, accompanied by an assessment of participant motivation
and followed by a broad spectrum of health promotion and wellness programs.

Health Assessments for Reduced Risk and Real ROI: Innovations, Interventions and Incentives

Health Assessments for Reduced Risk and Real
ROI: Innovations, Interventions and Incentives

is based on contributions from Wes Alles, Ph.D.,
director of the Stanford University Prevention
Research Center, Yann Meunier, M.D.,
health improvement manager, Stanford School
of Medicine Health Improvement Program and
Gary Smithson, M.D., M.B.A., WorldDoc.

The experts at Stanford University — the birthplace
of the Stanford Health and Lifestyle Assessment
(SHALA)— examine current trends and business
beliefs surrounding HRAs. Dr. Alles, whose 20-year
research career has been focused on health promotion, preventive medicine and
behavior modification, describes the evolution of HRAs.

Stanford colleague Dr. Meunier, who applies Prevention Research Center findings
to health promotion offerings for Stanford University employees, describes the
motivation and change assessments that set the stage for an effective HRA
program and proposes interventions to round out the HRA effort and generate
real ROI.

From WorldDoc, Dr. Smithson describes new sources of data inputs for HRAs from
the realms of biometrics and telemedicine and the enhanced responsibilities
of the patient and physician in executing post-HRA interventions. He connects
the HRA to care management and quality improvement and suggests reimbursement
models that fit the enlarged physician role. He also provides a new view of
evaluating the financial impact of population health management that goes
beyond traditional ROI measurement.
