Total Wellness, Powered by CoxHealth
Wellness isn't only about being free from illness or disease. It's being actively aware of your health and making lifelong behavior changes to support a healthy, fulfilling life. As health issues and health care costs continue to rise, wellness and prevention is becoming an increasing area of focus, especially in the workforce. The CoxHealth Total Wellness professionals are trained wellness experts, certified through the Wellness Council of America. We're ready to support you as an employer and help your employees make healthier lifestyle choices that help them thrive at work and throughout their lives, thus increasing employee engagement and productivity and lowering costs. Healthy, happy employees make healthy, happy workplaces.
All employees of companies that participate in this program have access to the Total Wellness Portal, an online program that makes it easy to access the program's resources. This interactive tool can be used to track screening results, log daily activity and food intake, learn about wellness events, participate in healthy living challenges and more.
We promote healthy lifestyles through education, coaching and wellness activities to prevent onset or escalation of chronic diseases. We provide screening tools that promote early detection of diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and some cancers. We also offer online outcome-based programs to help employees lower their overall level of health risk from one year to the next based on the results collected through the online health risk assessments (HRA) and the on-site assessment.
Health Risk Assessments & Biometric Screenings
Completing your HRA online each year is the first component of your wellness program and involves evaluating lifestyle factors such as exercise, eating habits, sleep patterns, stress and medical history. Employees can complete this step in the Total Wellness Portal. We also have wellness team coordinators to assist with on-site biometric screenings and labs and to help employees complete their HRAs as needed. The clinical assessment will include measuring blood pressure, waist circumference, height and weight, body fat percentage and BMI. This portion of the HRA also includes labs to measure HDL and LDL cholesterol levels, glucose and triglycerides.
The on-site assessment is a yearly screening designed to help assess the current health and wellness condition of the company as a whole. Individual assessments are confidential and individual answers provided on the HRAs are not shared with employers. Instead, data is compiled into an easy-to-read summary to provide an overall snapshot of the current assessment.
Behavioral science has shown that one-on-one coaching is an effective approach to helping people make and sustain improvements in their lives. We offer custom coaching plans to focus on individual needs, values, beliefs, vision and goals.
We offer education on a wide variety of topics including weight management and nutrition, exercise and fitness, behavior change, cancer, cardiovascular health, stress management, the health risks of tobacco, and medical self-care. Contact us for details.
Eating well and living well go hand-in-hand. We can arrange for a registered dietitian to present a healthy menu to your team, and demonstrate how to prepare it.
Tobacco use is the leading cause of preventable death and disease in the U.S., and breaking addiction can be tough physically, mentally and socially. CoxHealth wellness education specialists are certified through the American Lung Association to provide group tobacco cessation courses that last either four or seven weeks. Online six-week tobacco cessation courses are also available.
Weight Loss Challenges
These 12-week weight loss programs include an initial weigh-in; weekly, bi-weekly or quarterly weight-ins; and motivational tools. Your employees can compete as individuals or in teams.
Fitness Challenges and Demonstrations
Peer-supported fitness challenges are great morale boosters that encourage health and wellness. Our fitness experts can also demonstrate different types of exercises your employees can do at work, including stretching, cardiovascular fitness and more.
