Health Risk Assessments

Setting the Standard for Payer and Provider HRAs

Health Risk Assessments (HRAs) by National Research Corporation offer an impressive portfolio of tools designed to meet the specialized data needs of both payer and provider clients. The unique insights offered through HRAs allow both payers and providers to deliver more customer-centric healthcare. These solutions are the primary information source for population health management, community wellness, and preventive care solutions for healthcare payers and providers.


National Research has surveyed more than 3 million health plan members over the past 10 years. Today, our clients represent hundreds of regional and national Medicare Advantage, Medicaid, commercial, and special needs plans located across the U.S., including 3 of the top 10 health plans.

What’s more, HRAs are not just for payers. National Research HRAs are gaining popularity on the provider side. As providers increasingly accept risk through new models of care delivery and payment, HRAs provide critical insights to care management organizations that want to get ahead and stay ahead of at-risk patient populations.

Manage the Care of Those Who Are Most at Risk
Health Risk Assessments help health plan clients and care management organizations effectively stratify and manage the care of those who are most at-risk members in an effort to heighten engagement, improve outcomes, and drive at-risk populations to chronic condition management, preventive care consumption, quality solutions, and higher member satisfaction.

Timely, Actionable, Impactful Data
A proven combination of effective outreach and intelligent population health survey tools sets National Research apart as the most innovative HRA solutions provider. The quality of the predictive focus in the surveys adds further value to the data—revealing facts that are timely, actionable, and impactful.
