The personal health assessment (PHA) is a confidential, self administered questionnaire that asks a series of questions about your lifestyle habits, your health history and your current health status. The PHA takes about 15 minutes to complete. To access it, log in. If you do not already have an account, you can create one here. Once you have completed the PHA survey and received a biometric screening, you will be given a personalized report with your results and recommendations about making healthy lifestyle choices. In addition, completing a PHA will provide you with information about programs and services to help you improve your health and well being. Your recommendations will include access to free resources (on line and on site) to help you manage your health.
Get Healthier, Get Rewarded
Eligible individuals who complete their PHA survey and biometric screening are entitled to receive a $125 incentive, and receive information about programs and services that may carry additional rewards! To find out more about how you can get rewarded for taking steps to improve your health and well being, as well as detailed eligibility information, visit our incentives page.
The information you share in the PHA and the results of your biometric screenings are kept confidential and are protected by several laws, including HIPAA and the Americans with Disabilities Act, as well as the University’s internal policies. The information will be used only to promote your health and may be forwarded to your personal physician or to other University health plans for purposes of treatment, payment, and health care operations. Specifically, the University of Rochester Health Care Plans (including Condition Management and Behavioral Health Partners) and the Employee Assistance Program (including Lifestyle Management Program) are part of an Organized Health Care Arrangement, which means that protected health information can be shared among those plan components for purposes of treatment, payment, and health care operations without the need for your consent or authorization to use or disclose your health information to carry out these functions. Only University employees and vendors responsible for administering those plans, such as employees who work in the Benefits Office, the School of Nursing, the Healthy Living Center, and Behavioral Health Partners, who perform services for the plan, have access to protected health information. Those employees are trained on privacy procedures and are subject to disciplinary action for failure to comply. The types of information obtained in the Personal Health Assessment (PHA) include demographics and employment information, lifestyle habits, and personal medical history.
