LONDON, March 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Bupa International has announced the launch of its free online health assessment.
The assessments are part of the Bupa International's new health section on its website, which has more than 50 factsheets and a series of health theme pages which include articles and videos explaining medical issues.
The online health assessment is designed to help users find the answers to any health-related questions they may have.
The health assessment will ask the user a series of questions to help understand their medical and lifestyle risk factors. At the end users will receive a report with medical information based on their answers and guidance on how they can improve their health if necessary. The assessment takes less than 10 minutes to fill out.
The health assessments on the site include maternity, diet, stress, fitness, heart disease risk and breast cancer risk.
First time users are asked to register so that Bupa can get some very basic personal information, which is important for the quality of the assessments. This also means that returning users won't have to enter the same information again the next time they visit. First time users will have to register an email address and a chosen password, which is a different login from the one currently used by Bupa International Members for Membersworld.
On the main 'Health Information' page users can find links to Bupa's A-Z list of factsheets and the health theme pages. All the content has been written by Bupa's medical team and reviewed by doctors or clinical professionals.
