Wellness Assessment Q&A
How do I get my business signed up for a screening?
First, determine what time of year you would like to host a screening and if you have employee interest. Then simply contact Avera McKennan Corporate Health at (605) 322-3871
Are all the tests being offered required to complete?
No. Due to the various physical capabilities of employee we do not require completion of all testing that is offered. In most cases we can offer an alternative option for completion.
How do you protect the employees’ privacy?
Avera takes privacy very seriously. The assurance of privacy occurs before a service is scheduled and continues into the delivery of all services. The Avera coordinator works closely with the employer to ensure adequate steps are taken to protect the privacy of all. Any and all results generated from our services are kept internally at Avera McKennan Corporate Health’s office, unless permission for other consent is given. We do not share any personal information with health plans, physicians, employers or Avera McKennan unless consent is provided.
