Activities are the engine that drives Wellvibe. When members sign in to Wellvibe for the first time, the system automatically generates activities based on their personal information, age and gender. A custom user interface is then created with clear direction in each activity.
As members complete activities, Wellvibe assigns new ones based on their health assessment, biometrics, claims history, and other specific data. This clinical logic keeps members on track for activities that lead to outcomes, such as lower blood sugar, lower blood pressure or a drop in waist circumference.
A Biometric Screening activity is one of Wellvibe’s key activities. A Biometric Screening may be assigned to members of Wellvibe through their employer to help identify individuals who have risk factors for heart disease, diabetes, stroke and more.
If your screening values are out of range, you will have the opportunity to participate in a recommended disease intervention program to help improve your health.
Most children and adults should see their physician once a year for an annual physical. The physician will determine the level of the checkup and the preventive screenings to be administered.
To make the most of your next checkup, here are some things to do before you go:

Taking care of your teeth and gums isn’t just about preventing cavities or bad breath. The mouth is a gateway into your body’s overall health. Gum disease and other health problems may be linked so brushing and flossing are more important than ever. See your dentist regularly to keep your smile – and yourself – healthy.
One of the most effective actions you can take to cut your medical claims costs is diabetes management. One in 10 employees is diabetic, and three others are pre-diabetic. Medical costs for a diabetic employee are 230 percent higher than for a non-diabetic employee, and 80 percent of claims over $250,000 are diabetes related. So it’s easy to see that diabetes control can have a signifiant impact on your claims.
Our soon-to-be-released diabetes management program gets to the root of the problem: testing. Seven out of 10 diabetics don’t test regularly, and if they don’t test, they can’t control their condition. The program provides a state-of-the-art glucometer that instantly records every result into a database. With real-time monitoring, select caregivers and family members will be alerted when testing is missed, or when results are out of range. And so will a 24/7 call center staffed by trained personnel. This way, they can intervene — before the situation becomes a crisis.
Wellvibe can dynamically assign a series of educational videos from Emmi Solutions to help participants better understand risk factors, their cause, and their role in reducing those risk factors. Emmi video’s can also serve as a reasonable alternative activity.

Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancer in men in the United States. A Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) test measures the level of PSA in the blood. The levels of PSA, produced by the prostate, can be higher in men with prostate cancer, or as a result of other conditions affecting the prostate. Your PSA level can also be affected by certain medical procedures, medications, an enlarged prostate, or a prostate infection. The PSA test is not 100% accurate and can result in false positive or false negative results. Your doctor is the best person to weigh the benefits and risks of a PSA test based on your age, family history, and race, and to help you determine if a PSA test is right for you.
Men 50-69 years of age should discuss with their doctor if a PSA test could be beneficial for them. Depending on the results of your PSA test, it is recommended that you be retested annually or every two years at the recommendation of your doctor.
