2010 Performance Benchmarks in Health Risk Assessment Use

Aggregate data from health risk assessments (HRAs) provide a snapshot of population health status that guides healthcare payors, purchasers and providers in the design of health improvement or disease management initiatives.

But should the completion of HRAs be mandatory for employers or health plan members? Should HRAs be incentivized? In what format should health assessments be administered, and who should be permitted to review the output from HRAs?

2010 Performance Benchmarks in Health Risk Assessment Use answers these questions and many others with a wealth of actionable information from 116 healthcare organizations on their use of HRAs.
