Phoenix - A new tool is available for Arizona employers who seek to improve employee wellness and boost productivity in the workplace. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona (BCBSAZ) has introduced My BluePrint, a virtual health advisor and health measurement tool. By inviting employees to take an interactive assessment, employers receive an overall summary of results so they can identify risk factors in four key areas--fitness, sleep, nutrition and stress management--and implement the most appropriate wellness programs."Employers who offer the My BluePrint program are becoming increasingly engaged in the health of their employees while helping to improve company performance," says Dick Hannon, senior vice president of marketing and provider affairs for BCBSAZ. "Employers have the ability to take more control over the invisible costs of health care by promoting simple steps toward healthier living."

My BluePrint is offered to all BCBSAZ members and can be accessed online through their BlueNet accounts at http://www.azblue.com/productivity. The virtual health advisor helps individuals assess their current health and determine where they should be health-wise, as well as deliver a plan to help get them there. The initial assessment takes less than 30 minutes to complete and results are immediate. Members then have access to all My BluePrint content, including up-to-the-minute health news, personalized health topics and articles. The program keeps a history of results, helping participants see improvement over time.
