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

    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.
