Combining high touch with hi-tech, computers and iPads are available for visitors to access and print health-related information, and a “health screening kiosk” measures blood pressure, pulse and body mass index (BMI) – all important indicators that help people better understand their health status. UnitedHealthcare also will host an ongoing series of education seminars that are free to the public. Topics will include nutrition and exercise, disease management and financial planning.“Health care is a local resource, and as consumers are increasingly being asked to play a greater role in their personal health, many people may need extra support. Neighborhood centers like the UnitedHealthcare Asian Plaza in Chinatown will become more critical to ensure consumers have easier access to local resources so they can learn more about their health and the options available to them,” said Tom Paul, chief consumer officer, UnitedHealthcare. “We look forward to serving New York residents and expanding this model to serve additional communities around the country.” UnitedHealthcare serves more than 3.8 million New York residents with a care provider network of 230 hospitals and more than 46,000 physicians and other health care professionals statewide, including more than 1,000 Asian-American physicians who provide culturally and linguistically appropriate care and support to Asian-American plan participants in New York City.
