SpecialtyHealth’s Wellness
and Prevention Program

 

Welcome! A Guide to Getting Started:

Thank you for participating in the SpecialtyHealth Wellness
and Prevention Program. The purpose of this letter is to provide you with tools to successfully guide you through the initial process.

The SpecialtyHealth Wellness and Prevention Program is ten years in the making. It is focused on providing the tools to help you reach your individual health goals, whether it is health risk reduction, weight reduction, stress reduction, better nutrition, or becoming more fit.

The Wellness and Prevention Program is a year-long program that uses the most up-to-date “evidence-based medical guidelines” and laboratory testing. We explain your risk factors on an easy to follow “BIG 5” chart that tells you if you have health risks.

The program is designed to give you the clinical, nutritional, fitness and health coaching resources you need to accomplish your goals.

GUIDE TO GETTING STARTED:
IT’S AS EASY AS ONE, TWO, THREE!

Start by filling out the HRA:

  1. Make sure to complete each section of the HRA. If you are unsure, or do not have the information, you may input N/A and move to the next section. If you need assistance in completing the information on the HRA, please call us @ 775.398.3635 or 888.784.7960.
  2. Biometrics. We ask that you provide us with a current height, weight, blood pressure and waist measurement. HOW IS WAIST CIRCUMFERENCE MEASURED: To Measure waist circumference locate the top of the hip bone.  Place the tape measure evenly around the bare abdomen at the level of this bone.  Read the tape measure and record the waist circumference in inches.
  3. Once you have completed the HRA, print a copy for your records and hit the submit button. A copy will automatically be sent to SpecialtyHealth.

Once your HRA is completed, if you live in the Reno area, you will be contacted to schedule a blood draw at SpecialtyHealth Wellness and Prevention.  Outside the Reno area, you will receive a lab slip for your blood test over a secure website to the email address you provided on your HRA. The laboratory test is a “fasting blood test” (nothing to eat or drink, except water for 10 hours prior to the blood test).

  1. Appointment with our Clinical Wellness Coordinator. Within 4 days of receiving your lab slip, one of our Clinical Wellness Coordinators will contact you to confirm you have received your lab slip, and have completed your blood test. Your initial Wellness Visit will be scheduled at that time.

Please note: your initial wellness visit is contingent on the completion of your HRA and your blood test. If you have questions or you have not been contacted by us within 4 days of completion of you HRA, please call or e-mail us at 775.398.3635 or 888.784.7960 or wellness@specialtyhealth.com.

A SpecialtyHealth Certified Clinical Wellness Coordinator will meet with you and discuss the results of your health risk assessment and your lab results. Together, you will set goals and schedule follow up appointments to include; your clinical wellness coordinator, nutrition and fitness.

We have many helpful resources available here on our website, we hope you enjoy checking them out.   

We are a phone call or e-mail away! Don’t hesitate to call or e-mail us with questions, comments or need to re-schedule an appointment!
