Going Beyond The Results This Screening Season

shutterstock_7206020623-1Screenings provide an efficient way for members to get a snapshot of their health status and more importantly, identify conditions for the first time. When members get their results, many times they want to learn more about what they can do to improve. That’s where Next-Steps Consult comes in. This service helps members understand their results, identify the best path forward with their health and discover intrinsic motivators that inspire action. 

A Next-Steps Consult can increase engagement with all your benefits or resources. Our Guides are knowledgeable about all the programs you have available and refer members to utilize their benefits to get the care and support they need when they need it most.

Even if you are not running an onsite screening event due to COVID-19, Next-Steps Consult is the gateway service to connect members with the resources suitable for their unique goals. In a member engagement analysis, Virgin Pulse members who complete a Next-Steps Consult show 18% higher monthly engagement on the platform compared to those who did not complete one.* 

Compared to those who don't participate, members who do complete Next-Steps Consult engage more consistently on the Virgin Pulse Platform in the short and long term.
