With TRALE’s easy-to-use assortment of customized HRA tools that include both online portals and on-site tools, resell organizations are finding TRALE’s products the perfect fit for helping them lower their clients’ skyrocketing insurance costs. These products can be rebranded by resellers and offered as part of their suite of services.
“MyBioCheck takes the guesswork out of workplace wellness by providing a report card for both the participant and the company,” says Dan O’Flaherty, vice president of Sales. ”Our clients love the numerous customization options and its ease of use. But most importantly, our products can help companies greatly improve the health of their employees and reduce medical costs and claims at the same time.”
A biometric screening is a crucial starting point for any comprehensive health and wellness program. For employers, biometric screenings provide important baseline data to shape the direction of their overall corporate wellness and disease management program. One of the best things about MyBioCheck, is its ease-of-use for both the screener and the participants being screened. After completing an HRA, participants can immediately identify their wellness strengths and weaknesses and they can track their biometric values over time.
Participants also receive a MyBioCheck Report Card that explains in simple language why these biometric values are critical and how they contribute to chronic disease. Participants are then provided with simple, but effective steps they can take to improve their grades and their health.
About the Company:
TRALE was founded in 2001 with the goal of offering flexible, customized health risk assessment (HRA) solutions to its customers. Instead of the “one-size-fits-all” HRA products that are common in the industry, we provide both online and pencil-and-paper HRA tools customized to the individual client’s needs.

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

Making sure your employees are healthy can really save a business some cash.  And that’s the idea behind a new program being offered to local company’s through Mercy Medical Center’s Business Health.

It’s a high tech way to get a handle on your health.  “It’s a visual to help people motivate,” said Kim Jorgensen.  Kim Jorgensen is talking about MyBioCheck.  It’s an iPad program that helps medical professionals tally up your health risk.  First a you step on a scale.  Get a measurement of your waist.  Take your blood pressure.  And have your cholesterol and glucose tested through a finger stick test.  Those numbers are entered into the program, and the results are fast.  “This gives immediate feedback, so that the individual at that point in time can know their numbers and get a report card,” said Jorgensen.  “Grades are all universal.  I mean, we all understand what an  ‘A’ is, what a ‘B’ is, what a ‘C’ is,” said Jorgensen.

The program works in English or Spanish and can also give instant feedback on how to improve grades, through lifestyle changes like losing weight and stopping smoking.  The business gets an overall tally, not individual results, but enough information to help them help you.  “It helps them identify what maybe some of their health risks are with their employee population, so they can offer some other  type of, wellness types of, programs,” said Jorgensen.  “It also helps with employee productivity.  People who are healthier generally show up to work.  They usually have more energy and are more effective and productive.  They tend to have better moods, so morale’s improved,” said Jorgensen.

And another biggie, Kim Jorgensen says helping your employees get healthy can lower your company’s health care costs.  In fact, she’s seen that happen here in Siouxland.  If you would like to have the My BioCheck program done at your business, just contact Mercy Business Health.

To bring a covered entity and its business associates into compliance with the HIPAA security rule is a four step process.

  1. Update the business associate contract. As noted in the ARRA, security rule compliance “shall be incorporated into the business associate agreement between the business associate and the covered entity.” NIST 800-66, p48 notes that it is appropriate for covered entities to request network risk assessments from their business associates.
  2. Have the business associate acquire a copy of the HIPAA Compliance Reporter from ACR2.
  3. Have the business associate scan their workstations and create the Information Security Risk Assessment and the HIPAA Compliance Report. Have the business associate convey a copy of the reports to the covered entity. This information transfer may be done manually or electronically. Risk Assessment summaries use an easily understood red/yellow/green report format. The HIPAA Compliance Report is a clause by clause review of the Security Rule with the current status of the business associate network.
  4. Once the business associate networks have been secured, a similar process is done for the covered entity. Each department, if more than one, may be treated as a separate risk source.

TRALE can provide a copy of it’s HIPAA compliance report by request through our contact form.

Employee wellness and disease management has never been so easy or so powerful. MyBioCheck™. puts biometric data from your workforce right in your hand, because it’s designed specifically for the Apple iPad.

Screening participants can immediately identify their wellness strengths and weaknesses. Thanks to the application’s data storage capabilities, MyBioCheck™ also makes it easy for participants to track their biometric values over time.

The MyBioCheck™ Report Card explains in simple language why these biometric values are critical and how they contribute to chronic disease. Finally, the report card provides simple, but effective action items that participants can immediately do to improve their grades — and their health.

MyBioCheck™ has been designed specifically for use by organizations specializing in health & wellness, biometric screening and health coaching.

MyBioCheck™ features a simple and intuitive touch screen user interface that collects biometric data from popular onsite blood diagnostic data devices. Making sense of your workforce’s health has never been easier or more convenient.

Healthier employees mean a more productive workforce. MyBioCheck™ is powerful; simple-to-use analytic and reporting tools take the guesswork out of workplace wellness.

Dan O’Flaherty, Vice President of Sales (dano@trale.com) states, “We are extremely excited to introduce this revolutionary new device. MyBioCheck™ produces a Report Card for the participant and the company. People just seem to understand grades. We are excited about this product for Wellness Companies, Screening Companies and Health Coaching organizations. Initially it will be available for the iPad but this fall we plan on making it available online as well”.

TRALE announced the MyBioCheck™ iPad app at The Forum 11, the annual meeting of the Care Continuum Alliance, Sept. 7 to 9, in San Francisco. The Forum 11 convenes a diverse audience of leaders in wellness, prevention and care management to advance knowledge of best practices and innovative approaches to population health management.

TRALE was founded in 2001 with the goal of offering flexible, customized health risk assessment (HRA) solutions to its customers. Instead of the “one-size-fits-all” HRA products that are common in the industry, we provide both online and pencil-and-paper HRA tools customized to the individual client’s needs.
