Announcements: Health Risk Assessment Recommendations Available Online

JAMA. 2012;307(7):661. doi:

MMWR. 2011;60:1679

Final health risk assessment recommendations, published in A Framework for Patient-Centered Health Risk Assessments—Providing Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Services to Medicare Beneficiaries, are now available online at http://www.cdc.gov/policy/opth/hra. The framework includes guidance for health-care providers and others in the design and application of health risk assessments and follow-up interventions that research suggests are effective in reducing some high-risk health behaviors. These final recommendations update CDC's previous Interim Guidance for Health Risk Assessments and Their Modes of Provision for Medicare Beneficiaries, published March 23, 2011.1
