BERNARDSVILLE, N.J., March 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Protocol Driven Healthcare, Inc. (PDHI) now offers a short form of its health risk assessment (HRA), the ConXus(R) Profile. The shorter format facilitates completion by populations with low literacy and reduces processing costs of paper assessments. The short form does not replace the original, longer adult HRA, but joins PDHI's suite of ConXus applications, which includes assessments for students, children, and Spanish-speaking adults.
Employers can deliver both long and short forms to the same population or subgroup and can switch between long and short forms from year to year. Aggregate reports support both versions when deployed within the same population and time period.
"While the short-form HRA does not comply with NCQA HIP 1 or evalu8 standards, it does provide a robust option for employers to collect health data from hard-to-reach employees," said Jennifer Jolley, president of PDHI. "The abbreviated format also satisfies a request from many of our clients to deliver a solution that saves paper-processing costs while maintaining reporting integrity."
The short-form HRA includes about 40 instead of 70 questions. The user report shrinks to about 5 pages, and the paper questionnaire to 4 pages. The short form delivers all the functionality required to assess a participant's current health risk, omitting chronic and future disease risks on the long form.
The short-form HRA uses the same file structure as the long version, which simplifies ongoing version control. Both long and short versions of the HRA are available in English and Spanish and can be taken online or on paper.
