I understand that by agreeing to participate in the It’s Your Life Services, LLC (“It’s Your Life”) or the health management program of Henry Ford Allegiance Health (“HFAH”), I will be required to complete a Health Risk Appraisal. I consent to the sharing of data from my Electronic Health Record on biometrics including height, weight, blood pressure, cholesterol, glucose and/or A1c in order to supplement the data I provide in the Health Risk Appraisal. If data is not available from my physician or my Electronic Health Record, I consent to allow blood samples to be taken from me and the laboratory analysis of said blood samples for the purpose of determining cholesterol and glucose (all of this, including Personal Health Information, “Personal Information”).
I consent to and authorize my Personal Information to be given to HFAH and/or and any of its designees, including Jackson Health Network, LC3 (“JHN”), the service provider of care management services (if applicable), and Health Alliance Plan (“HAP”), the Health Risk Appraisal vendor, and its vendors, to make and deliver the following information:
- my personal health profile report to me,
- an aggregate report to my employer (with Personal Information de-identified), and
- my Personal Information to authorized health employees or agents of the It’s Your Life and/or HFAH health management program and wellness coaches and to my Primary Care Physician (“PCP”) in order to coordinate followup education and health care treatment.
I authorize health employees or agents of the It’s Your Life and/or HFAH health management program and wellness coaches to access and document relevant health information in my Electronic Health Record, limited to Personal Information related to health management and preventive services or, only in the case of my participation in the Care Management program, care management staff to access and document relevant health information in order to coordinate my care.
