Health Risk Assessments

Community Care Physicians now offers Health Risk Assessments (HRA).

A Health Risk Assessment is mostly Q&A with a certified provider to talk together about the five key domains of health: emotional health, physical health, spiritual health, social health, and mental health.

CCP has partnered with a trusted organization named Housecall Doctors to offer these HRAs to our patients.

The HRA is like a check in. This visit focuses on things to help keep you healthy and helps make sure your CCP doctor’s office has a full picture of what overall issues you may be experiencing in your life so the practice team can help keep you as happy and healthy as possible. You and your CCP doctor also get personalized reports summarizing the visit and your doctor uses this information to prepare for your next visit and determine next steps on anything that requires follow-up now.

We understand it can be difficult and costly to squeeze in another medical appointment, so this Health Risk Assessment is at no cost to you and offered virtually. Being virtual allows you to stay safe and relaxed in the comfort of your home and also offers convenience in scheduling. This virtual visit uses your smart phone or computer to connect through video to a healthcare team member who will talk with you about your medical history, health risk screening questions, the current state of your health, and help create your plan for staying well.

The team performing HRAs are advanced practitioners who will gather information to be reviewed by our office, integrated into your medical record, and utilized to prepare for your next appointment or any follow-up that may be required sooner with our office.

If you qualify for an HRA you will be contacted by a team member to schedule the HRA. They will identify themselves as partners of your doctor’s office to help schedule your HRA. Please trust this is a valid communication and can be trusted.
