2013 Healthcare Benchmarks: Health Risk Assessments

2013 Healthcare Benchmarks: Health Risk Assessments

Combined with other 'big data' analytics, aggregate results from health risk assessments or health risk appraisals become the building blocks of population health management programs designed to bend the healthcare cost curve. Employers, payors and providers use HRAs to take the clinical temperature of the populations they serve and develop appropriate prevention and self-management interventions.

In recent months, some have questioned the use of HRAs to probe individuals about lifestyle risk factors such as divorce or financial loss, citing a potential privacy violation. While the controversy continues, eligibility for HRAs now extends beyond employees and health plan members to spouses, significant others and in many cases, dependents over 18.

HRA participation tied to health insurance premiums is also a growing trend.
