DSS Research Announces Senior Health Risk Assessment (SrHRA)(TM)
Date:9/30/2009

FORT WORTH, Texas, Sept. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- DSS Research announces their Senior Health Risk Assessment (SrHRA). The tool combines solid science and proven tools into a single scoring system. It uses a variety of established measures regarding physical and mental health, preventive care and current health care usage, into an integrated survey tool. Using this tool, members are categorized from low to high risk on a number of dimensions including overall health, mental health, frailty, probability of hospital readmission and other general risks based on existing conditions and lifestyle.

The online reporting system provides a comprehensive set of reports that gives a complete picture of the overall health of members, results for individual members and the ability to search the member health risk database on a wide range of criteria. Results can be summarized for any subpopulation of interest, and individuals can be selected for intervention based on criteria established and entered into the reporting tool. Summary reports can be printed for case managers, and personalized reports can be mailed to individual members or given to their health care providers for patient follow-up.

DSS Research has been doing health risk assessments (HRAs) for more than 20 years.

"Addressing member health in a proactive manner is a win-win-win proposition that will result in a better quality of life for the member, lower cost for the plan, and lower utilization and costs for the health care system," says Roger Gates, president and CEO, DSS Research. "We are able to analyze HRA survey results in relation to claims and clinical data to identify those measures that are truly predictive of risk, and to develop meaningful norms for different population subgroups."
