Health 365 Wellness Program Community Benefit
WHA Community Benefits Report 2009; Free Medical Services
Health 365 is a Fort HealthCare Health Promotion program intended to help people remember that their health is something that needs attention 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days of every year. Annual physicals or thinking about staying healthy once you’re already sick is not enough.
Through Health 365, there are numerous tools, programs and services that Fort HealthCare provides to make taking important preventive health measures simple, easy-to-understand and affordable, demonstrating our commitment to the well-being of our service area population.
Health 365 programming includes:
- FREE E-Health 365 Newsletter
- FREE cholesterol screenings
- FREE blood sugar (glucose) screenings
- FREE bone density screenings
- Support groups
- Educational seminars and classes
- Special events and challenges
- Licensed on-line wellness library
- On-line health care guides
- On-line wellness calculators
- FREE health risk assessments (HRAs)
The Fort HealthCare Health 365 program encourages proactive health behavior by encouraging individuals to “know their numbers” and health risks. Preventive healthcare and early detection are both shown to enhance individual well-being and lower health insurance costs.
Perhaps the greatest benefit of the program is that it offers free lab tests to assess cholesterol and blood sugar levels. The value of these free tests exceeds $50. Any member of the community can obtain a lab slip from any of the free monthly Fort HealthCare blood pressure, bone density and cholesterol screenings or community events. Alternatively, numbers from a recent physician visit can be used, and member login information can be obtained by calling the Fort HealthCare Health Promotion Department at (920) 568-5244.
Upon the completion of lab work, test results are mailed along with a membership welcome letter and private login information for the Health 365: Members Only portion of the Fort HealthCare Web site. Enrollees log in, create a profile and complete questions for the General Health Assessment in order to receive a personalized health report and begin enjoying the benefits of membership right away.
Personal health information and answers to the health questionnaire are confidential. Lab results are reviewed by a Fort HealthCare medical staff member and individuals are contacted directly if lab results are outside of a normal range.
