Personal Health and Well-being Assessment (PHA)

A Personal Health and Well-being Assessment (PHA) – also referred to as health risk assessment, health risk appraisal, and health assessment – is one of the most widely used screening tools in the field of health promotion and is often the first step in a multi-component health promotion program. Commonly, a PHA incorporates three key elements – an extended questionnaire, a risk calculation or score, and some form of feedback for employees.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention define a PHA as “a systematic approach to collecting information from individuals that identifies risk factors, provides individualized feedback, and links the person with at least one intervention to promote health, sustain function, and/or prevent disease.”

Where Is The PHA Located In Your Virgin Pulse Portal?

The PHA is located under the “Health” tab in your Virgin Pulse account. Hover over this tab at the top of the page, select the “Surveys” drop down, and then click the “Start” button next to the Personal Health & Well-being Assessment (PHA) at the top of the list.

This private, secure, online tool can be used to assess your current health status. Upon completion of the PHA, you will receive a personalized summary of your health status and risks. Virgin Pulse will also tailor specific programs to you and customize your experience based on your goals.

The re-designed PHA has been improved so it can be completed quicker and provide a better experience on mobile devices than in previous years. Once you’ve completed a verified biometric screening, your values will be integrated into your PHA results.
