Health Risk Assessments (HRAs) are a powerful component of population health management strategies for healthcare organizations.
HRA’s are a valuable tool to assist physicians in keeping their patients in good health. Simple risk calculators for heart health, diabetes, occupational health have been around for a long time, and patients have slowly started warming to the idea of filling in questionaires over 10-15 minutes which help them make better sense of thir health.
The major components of a Good HRA are accuracy, detail . ability to assist patients and the quality of the final report and analysis it provides. When we built our Eucalyptus HRA Engine, we also understood the importance of repeat risk identification and added the concepts of information prescription into the HRA results.
