Seeking an integrated picture of population health, today's HRAs ask about lifestyle risk factors like depression and divorce almost as often as they inquire about medical conditions at least 88 percent of the time, according to respondents to HIN's 2013 Health Risk Assessments survey. Many extend the tool's reach beyond employees and health plan members: a third of respondents to HIN's HRA survey offer the risk stratification tool to significant others (31 percent) and dependents over 18 (34 percent).

Sophisticated analytics behind today's HRAs provide employers, payors and providers an aggregate view of population health and a baseline for development of prevention and lifestyle change programs.
