During the fall of each year, faculty and staff are encouraged to complete a free and confidential online Health Risk Appraisal (HRA) by visiting the Wellsource HRA online (link available on September 1, 2018). 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. Completion of the HRA is one necessary step to obtain the Wellness Premium Incentive each year.
While no one at the university will see any single person’s responses,* program officials will receive de-identified, aggregated data to identify trends and opportunities involving the campus community. This information will be used to guide decisions regarding future program offerings to enhance well-being and help prevent chronic disease and acute illness.
*The university’s data warehouse is maintained in a secure environment. All data is de-identified to further ensure confidentiality.
