Wellfocused Program: What’s New?

Spring is in the air, and with it comes a chance to have a fresh start on improving your health and well-being, all while earning rewards with a new Wellfocused program. The three-tiered program structure allows UPHS employees to receive rewards for participating in many health-related activities to improve, or maintain good health.

The first step of the Wellfocused program is to Know Your Numbers through a biometric screening. This snapshot of your current health status will enable you to identify areas of focus when creating your goals. Your biometric screening numbers are kept confidential and will be uploaded to your Well-Being Assessment by a third-party administrator. UPHS will never have access to your screening results.
