If the City has an HRA fund, it can be added based on the patient progress and participation in the health and wellness program.
TCMA has a Wellness Library that has nutrition, health, procedure education and much more. The Wellness Library is user-friendly and extremely helpful.
Currently, TCMA wellness initiatives include:
- Glucose monitoring
- Blood pressure monitoring
- BMI (weight management)
- Lipid screening and management
- Smoking cessation
- Diet and exercise counseling and programs
Patients can walk in the employee health clinic for assistance, at any time, for questions and interpretation of their HRA. The HRA can be discussed at any phase with an employee through our telemedicine system. No on-site visit required, making it extremely convenient for the employee. For those employees that do not have access to the internet, they are welcome to come and use the computers/tablets at the clinic. Additionally, through our outreach program the providers visiting the departments will have tablets with them should any employee need them to fill out their HRA. As we identify high risk patients via clinical visits, we will ask them to participate in the HRA wellness process. We especially need to be successful in gaining a high rate of participation with this population––the City’s employee health clinic goal is 100% participation.
Provider interventions include changes when necessary in the medical management of any given patient and require ongoing monitoring and participation. This will include one on one personal coaching and goal setting. Our patient education includes influencing emotions and attitudes and is aimed at correcting destructive personal behaviors. Lab results are populated automatically into the HRA and shared with patients via phone, mail, or at a personal appointment. Interventions will be discussed and implemented. Educational flyers and pamphlets will be given to patients at appointments, sent out to patients, and can be used as paycheck stuffers. Safety and health tips will be routinely posted on the medical clinic’s website. Education will be based on the most prevalent ICD-10 diagnoses codes so we can identify and customize educational tools that will specifically target the needs of your employees.
