Enrolling Statistical Cohorts in WRM
The first two cohorts 'a' and 'b', are created automatically for all
new companies. An additional new cohort can only be enrolled inside one of the two main cohorts of a company
that is already enrolled with Wellness Risk Management.
This web page is for company contact people with
Wellness Risk Management. The first two items (company name and address) are crucially important
to have exactly the same as what was placed in the original company enrollment file. Our suggestion is to open that
Company Enrollment file you, (or a previous contact person), have saved and copy the name and address to paste in
this table below.
If the name changes in this table below from the original
company in any way then the enrollment of the cohort will abort and we will then need to manually confirm the name
changes and start again. If you did not save your original company enrollment file then please contact
Wellness Risk Management and indicate such. If you want a company name tweak, or address tweak, then please contact
us before trying to enrol a new cohort.
Please be aware that new Statistical Cohorts can only be
made in a company name and address that is already on file with Wellness Risk Management. Most of
this data is already on file from the original company enrollment so copy that data please for this green table
Each cohort will have the following necessary
data. Some of the data can apply to several cohorts. To
create a new cohort copy this whole table and paste it into the body of an email then fill it out and
send it to us. Preferably, start copying the table below from this

When a company wishes to take advantage of the free enrollment with Wellness Risk
Management, in order to help its workers with Self-Help Chronic Disease Prevention Strategies, then it should
review its workforce and decide what kinds of statistical research groups (cohorts) it might like to see for its
workforce and/or its management team. These anonymous cohorts will give a company information about the cohort
group as a whole. No individual worker data is available to a company.
This is a good way to understand the Wellness of various sections, or locations,
of a company's workforce. Cohorts are specific to a particular physical location venue address.
On the initial company enrollment, WRM divides the company into two main research cohorts,
the Main Management and the Main Worker workforce. That has already been done if your company is already
enrolled with WRM. A large company
can subdivide each of these into smaller groups and gain aggregate statistics on each group.
Aggregate statistics are only offered on groups of ten people or
more. There are no individual statistics from a worker that can be gained
by a company. A cohort has its statistics averaged for each section measured. There are 43 statistical
sections for each cohort.
When company's management team plans groups of workers in their company
for possible inclusion in a research cohort, they should look for groups of ten or more people with similar job
descriptions. Theses people can form a cohort where their individual statistics will be averaged for each study
parameter so the group will have a separate averaged score for each parameter. With that data several cohort
groups can be compared to discover if there are any significant variations. Specific focus can then be applied to
that group but, at the individual level. That would be the job of Wellness Risk Management.
