The Personal Wellness Assessment (PWA) is Wellable’s answer to the Health Risk Assessment (HRA). Rather than intrusive questions about an employee’s health, many of which they may not know, the PWA asks questions on an employee’s lifestyle across eight dimensions of health and well-being. Based on their responses, employees receive tailored educational content and feedback on ways to improve their health in that topic. Employers receive access to aggregated, de-identified responses, which can help them make smarter, more informed decisions about their wellness programming and meet the specific needs of their population.
The PWA provides insight on which areas of health and well-being employees may desire improvement in. This information can allow employers to run challenges that will address these areas of well-being. The PWA also permits users to better understand what areas of health they would like to focus on and tips to do so. Launching a Wellable Wellness Program with the PWA is a great way to allow employees to understand their personal health and well-being and set individual goals to improve their health through the various Wellable programs that they will participate in.
Participant data from the PWA cannot be accessed by Wellable Customer Success Managers and Admins. Only authorized individuals (certain developers, support staff, etc.) will be able to access user level data.
To keep the Personal Wellness Assessment current and allow your company to get the most valuable information out of the results, Wellable updates the assessment every two years. When you add the PWA to your program, the latest version will be created as a challenge in your Admin Account. Throughout the platform, you will see the latest version referred to as the “Personal Wellness Assessment”. You will also see previous versions of the Personal Wellness Assessment designated with the year they were published. For example, “Personal Wellness Assessment (2020)” will refer to the PWA released in 2020.
