The Ireland-based wellness company Fusion HR recently launched an updated version of its wellness portal, Health House.
This is an interactive personal health risk assessment wellness portal designed to support businesses implementing wellness programs within their organizations.
In 2013, the Irish government published the Healthy Ireland Framework. The report prompted employers to increase their focus on promoting health and wellbeing in their workforces.
"The launch of our new version of Health House, is in keeping with the Irish Government’s A Healthy Weight for Ireland – Obesity Policy and Action Plan 2016-2025 and the Healthy Ireland framework. We’ve partnered with Healthy Ireland to help communities, such as the workplace, to develop initiatives that will improve our nation’s health." -- Conor Hoey, Chief Sales Officer, Fusion HR.
The new release of Health House, which incorporates the well-established and research-based health risk assessment algorithm developed by Wellsource, Inc., is the first wellness portal to include education, awareness and recommendations specific for an Irish workforce and population.
Wellness portal supports population health management
The wellness portal connects healthy lifestyle choices to healthy outcomes and empowers individuals to be at their best physically, mentally, emotionally and professionally.
The wellness portal provides a personal report which identifies an individual’s risk across seven key health areas - Heart, Cancer, Diabetes, Obesity, Fitness, Nutrition and Mental Health. This enables employees to identify their personal health risks and initiate actions necessary to reduce or eliminate these risks, and reduce avoidable costs, to themselves and their employers.
In addition, Health House enables businesses to establish a baseline for their population, develop programs specific to their health risks in conjunction with employees’ enthusiasm to change, and then measure the effectiveness of these programs with hard data metrics.

We are delighted to continue our partnership with Fusion HR in support of Healthy Ireland." -- Chris McReynolds, CEO, Wellsource.
