The Health Future Health Management Survey is a third-generation health risk assessment which incorporates the most current knowledge available on behavior change theory, including Motivational Interviewing, Stages of Change, Self-efficacy and Patient Activation. It was designed by an interdisciplinary team of experts in health services research, healthcare and behavioral health.
Survey development was spearheaded by Ariel Linden, DrPH, MS and Susan Butterworth, PhD, MS, who are regarded as leaders in the health and disease management industries. Drs. Butterworth and Linden excel in successfully applying the science of behavior change theory and program evaluation to real-world interventions and programs.
The Health Future Health Management Survey integrates several valid and reliable instruments such as the Self-efficacy Scale for Managing Chronic Disease; the Patient Activation Measure; and the EQ-5D. Additional questions elicit demographic and utilization information, assess lifestyle risks, and address ambivalence and readiness to change. The Health Future Health Management Survey is not only a platform for gathering information, but also serves as an intervention in and of itself. We have employed a sophisticated layering of skip logic so that participants respond to question sets that are tailored to their risks.
Upon completion of the online survey each participant immediately receives a personalized report. Graphic displays provide comparisons to US norms, and Internet links are supplied to access educational materials, customized for each participant's risks and preferences.
Aggregated reports are readily accessible to obtain the following population-level information:
- Demographic characteristics
- Health care utilization and work productivity
- Chronic illness burden
- Self-efficacy scores
- Patient activation scores
- Perceived health status
- Health index (quality adjusted life year values for cost effectiveness analysis)
- Lifestyle risk factors
- Stages of change

“I am very impressed with the HMS Survey. It is easy to use, quick, and I thought the sections on identifying a focus area and assessing readiness are right on target. I like the visuals ('It's your choice, of course'), the progress bar, and the thermometer for assessing health status. And-most importantly-the survey is likely to play an important role in supporting lasting health behavior change in those that use it.”
“I really appreciate you putting this survey online. Not only did it help me gauge my heath status at this point in my life, but it will help me change what I am not happy with. It isn't just one of those multiple choice surveys that don't tell you anything. I'm glad that it actually gave me feedback at the end. So, to whoever put this survey online, thank you.”
