Who completes the Measure Up (assessment & lab)? – The assessment needs to be completed by the Wellness staff at one of the many Assessment & Lab events. Once you do your assessment you will be given a LAB REQUISITION that must be used at the Main lab or Pavilion Lab on the NKCH campus.
If I get labs on my own not using the Employee Wellness Lab Requisition, will they count? – No, you must use the Employee Wellness Lab Requisition.
When will my results be uploaded to the Employee Wellness portal?
- Both the wellness assessment and lab portions of the Measure Up challenge must be completed for data to appear.
- Once labs have been completed,it takes about a week for both the assessment and labf iles to be merged and sent over to WellRight. From there it takes about 10-14 days for results to be reflected within the WellRight account.
- Results NOT showing? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org@nkch.org.
What are the Outcomes Challenges? Do I have the opportunity to improve them? – The outcomes challenges are based on healthy ranges, if you are within the healthy range, you will receive the points. If you are not within the healthy range, you will not receive the points. *There is no reassessment or redraw for the biometric lab screening.
My data is on the Employee Wellness portal but some of the Outcomes Challenges are not showing? – When the data is out of range for the healthy standard, no points will be rewarded. The challenge will remain as 0% in the completed section because no points can be rewarded.
