What is a Health Compass Assessment?
The Health Compass is a unique health assessment questionnaire that enables you to update your assessment anytime during the year. There are approximately 50 questions available and the Health Compass saves responses after each question, allowing you to stop and restart at anytime. The experience picks up where you left off. Compass should take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete.
Completing the Health Compass is just the start to better health. Upon completion of the questions, you will receive a personalized report with recommendations that encourage you to select Journeys that are best suited to your needs and preferences.
What is a Journey?
A Journey takes a big goal like eating healthier and breaks it down into tiny achievable steps. Each Journey starts with a few questions to personalize the experience for you. A Journey is made up of several stages and each stage has many steps for you to choose from. When you have earned enough experience points in one stage you will be offered a challenge step. When you complete a challenge step you may proceed to the next stage in your Journey.
