Health Risk Assessment (HRA)
Health Risk Assessment (HRA) collects a wide range of information to identify risks that could affect the current and future health and well-being of a person.
HRA is based on thorough assessment of the following key points:
- Health status
- Lifestyle behaviors
- Family history
- Work environment
- Resident environment
- Physical activity
- Mode of transport
- Basic financial details
A systematic and scientific approach without being overtly exhaustive is the key in implementing the HRA. The assessment questionnaire is designed for the specific population (Indian population).
The HRA report supports a Company in realizing its long-term health management goals by providing valuable information for setting priorities, establishing objectives, planning interventions and evaluating outcomes. A company can have the greatest impact on avoidable costs and health-compromising behaviors through an integrated population health management strategy.
Effective strategies include providing traditional and online health information; activities such as campaigns that attract widespread participation, well-designed incentives and creating a healthy organizational culture.
