How can the wellness portal assist me with my wellness goals? (03/02/2015)

Kent State University employees have the opportunity to monitor and manage their health and wellbeing as a result of a new partnership between the university and Be Well Solutions.

Be Well Solutions collaborates with University Health Services to bring biometric screenings to the Kent Campus. They also hold health fairs and screenings at Kent State’s Regional Campuses. In addition to the screenings, employees have access to a password-protected Personal Health Portal. The portal is managed by Be Well Solutions and offers a variety of resources, such as a health risk assessment (HRA), health and wellness information, and multiple options for managing health.

Anyone who completes the online HRA and biometric screenings will receive a MOVband, a digital wristband that tracks your movement. The MOVable activity dashboard can be accessed from your Be Well Web portal account where you will have the opportunity to participate in MOVchallenges throughout the year. To access your Be Well Web portal account, follow the enrollment instructions (pdf).

In addition, for employees who participate in the health risk assessment, Be Well Solutions offers telephone and online health coaching. Health coaches can assist individuals in addressing any concerns or risk factors that may have been discovered during their assessment or they may also help with personal wellness-related goals that they may have. Examples of this include smoking cessation, developing a 5K training plan, weight-management assistance and more. All full-time, benefits-eligible employees are invited to participate in the online health risk assessments and upcoming biometric screenings on all campuses.
