    Healics

    Interra Health and Healics now operate under the Healics name. Your Participant ID, Password and Company ID will remain the same. Continue to manage your wellness on-the-go with the MyHealics App available at Google Play or the Apple App Store. Or, you may use a computer to access your dashboard.

    1. Login to your Dashboard
    2. Click on "Reports"
    3. Select "2020" from the drop-down list
    4. Click "Short Report"
    5. Scroll down
    6. "Biometric Score" appears on left
    7. Grade appears on the right
    8. Scroll to view results under red (high), yellow (moderately high), or green (normal) bars

    The results from your biometric screening are individually scored. Healics applies risk ratings to evaluate your results and identify areas of potential concern. For each biometric category tested, you will receive a risk rating of minimal, moderate, medium, high, or extreme risk. You will also earn points based on the risk rating received. These points make up your biometric score. The maximum amount of points/highest biometric score that can be earned during a biometric screening is 100 points. Please allow 2 weeks for your score to be uploaded as it can take that long for all your information to be completely uploaded.

    Personal Doctor

    If you are unable or choose not to participate in the Biometric Screening offered at SASD, you may submit results from your physician, provided that they have been collected between January 1, 2021 - April 3, 2021. You are responsible for ensuring that results are submitted. The deadline to submit these results is April 3, 2021. View form.

    Healics 100 vs 1000 1

      Your overall risk score is based on risk ratings applied to all biometric values collected (systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, healthy weight calculation, total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, triglycerides, and glucose).
