WHY GET A HEALTH SCREENING?

The screening is an effective health risk identification solution and education tool. It is designed to help improve your understanding of your health and well-being by providing new insights through laboratory results. Your results will be automatically entered into the new Take Care Health HRQ (if you have your screenings done by one of the two providers below). REMEMBER: This is a two step process. STEP 1 – Get your screening. STEP 2 – Complete the Take Care Health HRQ. Not only will you have valuable health risk information, but you will receive a $120 annual incentive off your health premiums. There is an additional $60 annual incentive for eligible spouses who complete the process. The spouse must be covered by a University Medical plan and complete both the health screening and HRQ to qualify for the incentive.

WHAT DO I DO WITH THE INFORMATION?

For screenings done at the Notre Dame Wellness Center or by Memorial Health System, the results will automatically be downloaded into the Take Care Health HRQ. For screening results not performed by one of these two providers, please manually input the results in the HRQ.

WHAT IS THE TAKE CARE HEALTH HRQ?

The Health Risk Questionnaire (HRQ) is a tool that helps identify healthy and unhealthy lifestyle behaviors. With this knowledge, you take a step toward reaching or maintaining good health by assessing your current health status, identifying health risks, learning ways to improve your lifestyle and reduce risks. This tool will be accessible beginning October 1, 2013 through November 8, 2013.

IMPORTANT

IS IT CONFIDENTIAL?

Your privacy is protected both during the screening process and afterward. The University of Notre Dame does not receive information linking your screening results to you. Here’s what happens:

  • Your screening is conducted by either the Notre Dame Wellness Center or by the Memorial Health & Lifestyle Center. All data is merged into the Take Care Health HRQ. They collect aggregate data on results as an organization, but none of the information they retain is attached to you in any way. That’s why it’s so important for you to keep these records of your results.
  • After your screening is complete, your results will be written in a pamphlet for your records. No other record identifying your results will exist, so be sure to keep this information in a safe place. Save it and you’ll have a record of your results from year to year. Pamphlet
