Employer-sponsored health screening programs have a lot of moving parts. Between screening results, health questionnaires, incentives, and other program facets, it’s difficult to make sure every part of your program is effectively communicated to your employees. Touching every employee at the main point of engagement makes a big difference, and that is why personalized employee reporting is one of the most important parts of a biometric screening program.
Over the past few years as an Account Manager, I have had multiple employer groups transition from our basic participant report – the MyTest™ – to an upgraded, highly personalized report – the MyGuide to Health™. But why would a group upgrade their report? Isn’t simply delivering biometric and lab test results all that’s needed?
Barry Wehmiller, a group who has conducted employee health screenings through Quest Diagnostics for multiple years, switched to the enhanced report before their 2016 program began, and within that program year, they saw the benefits of the customizable, participant-focused report. Due to the initial success of this upgraded report, they continue to use the MyGuide to Health in today. Through my conversations with Alexis Zygmund, Wellbeing Engagement Leader at Barry Wehmiller, I’ve been able to identify the three main reasons why an enhanced reporting option is essential for growing your wellness program and boosting participation.
