The Health Audit

HealthLink Wellness is committed to reduce health risks through regular health monitoring and feedback and to develop partnerships that engage the retiree within the fabric of the community. The ultimate goal is to build a culture of prevention where home, community and medical office work together as a team. A health risk statistical model was developed in partnership with Alliance for Retired Americans and originally funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Healthy Aging Program, Grant No. H75DP002301-01

HealthLink Wellness

Integral to the HealthLink approach is regular medical screening and feedback. The specific measures screened are: fasting blood glucose, blood pressure, high-density lipoproteins (HDL), total cholesterol (TC), smoking habits and body mass index (BMI). At each screening feedback is provided to retirees about their results and the recommended screening values they should try to achieve.

Patient Centered

HealthLink is currently enrolling primary physicians to participate in our wellness approach in what is called the "Patient Centered Medical Home" as endorsed by the American Academy of Family Physicians. The HealthLink team and the Doctor's office work together as a team in helping our members achieve their wellness goals. Physicians can learn more about HealthLink's evidence based assessment tools by logging onto our Physician Center. Contact us for complimentary access.

Statistical Audit Automation Book

Over the past decade many state revenue departments have retired the traditional block sample in conducting an audit in favor of the properly drawn random sample in the context of Computer Assisted Audit Techniques (CAATs). This is part of a trend of using statistical methods and spread sheets to enhance the effectiveness of all types of audits including forensic auditing. A new text automates the Statistical Audit.
