The purpose of this project is to develop an evaluation tool to quantify the participation of high risk employees in a wellness program. The goal is to create a new assessment tool that reliably determines the comparative enrollment of high-risk employees into corporate wellness programs.
Most wellness programs focus on chronic conditions such as heart disease and diabetes and behaviors such as smoking. Non biometric risk factors exist for these diseases, and including such questions in a health risk assessment is a way to evaluate the health of employees who may refuse clinical evaluation. This may provide a more accurate picture of aggregate risk for all employees, which can then be compared to that of employees who enroll in a wellness program to see if the program is attracting high risk employees in amounts that are proportional to their existence in the general employee population.
