Evidence-based health and well-being for entire populations.

University of Iowa to Implement Pro-Change Health Risk Assessment and Resilience Program

The University of Iowa has selected Pro-Change as its health risk assessment provider for University employees, including faculty and staff. By implementing the Pro-Change Health Risk Intervention (HRI), the University will be providing much more than the typical question and answer health risk assessment. In addition to assessing a comprehensive range of traditional health risks, the HRI captures readiness to change and provides immediate evidence-based, personalized feedback about the single most important strategy faculty and staff can use to make progress on each specific health risk behavior. The HRI also provides tailored text messages to reinforce behavior change strategies. In addition to the direct benefit the HRI provides for employees, on-demand aggregate reports provide actionable insights to inform strategy around university-wide and department-specific health and well-being programmatic efforts offered through University Human Resources.

“Our faculty and staff pride themselves in their high work ethic in service of the mission of the University of Iowa, but burnout happens even to the most dedicated and engaged employees. As an institution of higher education with an academic medical center, the Pro-Change tools provide us with research-supported interventions that also offer a convenient user experience for our busy employees. While employees already display high amounts of resilience, the goal of using recharge+ is to provide employees with tailored insights as they continue to navigate the complexities of life today.” – Megan Hammes, Senior Director | University of Iowa Wellness/University Human Resources |

The University of Iowa has also deployed recharge+TM , Pro-Change’s end-to-end, science-based digital solution designed to boost employees’ resilience in the face of adversity and change. This newly released solution utilizes the Resilience Evaluation Measure©, Pro-Change’s validated assessment of resilience, to provide users with a snapshot of their current level of resilience. Users also benefit from immediate feedback and daily text messages offering practical and tailored strategies on how they can enhance their resilience.
