Simple Steps To A Healthier Life, a program administered by Aetna InteliHealth Inc., is an interactive, online wellness program to help employers improve the health and productivity of their employees.

The program is designed with a step-by-step approach to encourage gradual behavior changes that help participants lower certain health risks.

  • Step 1: The Health Assessment (HA) assesses specific personal health needs and readiness to change certain health behaviors, and impact of health on productivity.
  • Step 2: The personalized Action Plan and online wellness programs that the participant receives are tailored to certain health risks and provide information and support for making positive health changes.
  • Step 3: Health information and tools are available to help participants make more informed health decisions.

  • Health Assessment Tool (HA): The HA questions are written in a concise, easy-to-read format. The tool assesses more than 20 health risk factors and generates an overall health risk score based on the participants' responses.
  • Tailored Health Reports: After completing the HA, participants receive a report tailored to address specific individual health risk factors for developing certain conditions. Participants also receive a concise health summary based on their responses that they can print and share with their doctor, dentist, or other health-care provider.
  • Personalized Action Plan and Online Wellness Programs: Participants receive an Action Plan with links to our online wellness programs. These personalized programs help participants address common health and wellness topics such as weight management, diet and exercise, stress management, smoking cessation, and more.
  • Health Information, Tools And Resources: Participants have access to credible information, interactive tools, and practical resources on diseases, treatments, drugs, tests, medical terms, and more that are easy to find and can help participants make more informed health decisions.
  • Secure Online Access: Participants have the ability to register and access the program from home or work. There is no special software to buy or install.
