The Prevention Plan is a wellness and health improvement program developed by U.S. Preventive Medicine to discover and address each member’s top health risks and promote healthier lifestyles, according to a news release.

The announcement said the Prevention Plan features a personalized online wellness program with registered nurse coaching and advocacy services that will enable participating employees to receive an assessment of their health status and top health risks and a customized plan to lower those risks and become healthier.

Employees will have their health status assessed through comprehensive blood work, biometrics, and a thorough health history. Goals are established for employees who are then provided with tools and assistance from registered nurses to take a step-by-step approach toward improved health.

Test results are uploaded and stored securely in one place online and employees can access them anytime, the announcement said.
