Wellness @ Case
During the fall of each year, faculty and staff are encouraged to complete a free and confidential online Health Risk Appraisal (HRA) by visiting www.case.edu/hra. The appraisal asks participants questions about smoking, drinking, diet, exercise and other factors that influence well-being. Each individual who completes the appraisal will receive confidential, personalized feedback regarding the results.
While no one at the university will see any single person’s responses*, officials will receive de-identified, aggregated data to identify trends and opportunities involving the campus community.
All faculty and staff Benelect medical plan participants, and those adding coverage for 2014, are encouraged to complete the HRA between Nov. 1-30. Participants will receive confidential, individualized feedback on their results, while the university will receive de-identified, aggregated data regarding the overall workforce. This information will be used to guide decisions regarding future program offerings to enhance well-being and help prevent chronic disease and acute illness. Completion of the HRA is one necessary step to obtain the Wellness Premium Incentive in 2014 as a Benelect medical plan participant.
*This is an IRB-approved effort at the University of Michigan. The university’s data warehouse is maintained in a secure environment. All data is de-identified to further ensure confidentiality.
