Still Have Questions?

Blueprint for Wellness questions

+

What steps are required to get my Blueprint for Wellness results?
After you complete your screening at a DLO lab, you must register at My.QuestForHealth.com. Use the Registration Key “DLOConsumer” and your 10-digit phone number as your Unique ID. Create a user name and password and write them down so you can log in later to view your results. You will build your demographic record, which will include your first name, last name, date of birth, gender, full address, phone number and email address. Finally, complete the online health questionnaire. Once you have created your account and completed the health risk assessment, you will receive an email when your results are available to view online, generally within 3-5 days after your screening. You will also receive a confidential, personalized, multi-page report providing current health status and individual risk factors in the mail within 2 to 3 weeks of your blood draw.

IMPORTANT: These steps are required in order to receive your results:

  • Use Registration Key: DLOConsumer
  • Your Unique ID: Enter your 10-digit phone number
    Note: Your Unique ID must be unique to you. If you share your phone line with another person who is also doing this screening, please decide which one should use this number, the other can add an "S" to the end of the phone number to make it unique.
  • Relation: You can skip this field and leave it as is

What happens if I don’t complete my health risk assessment questionnaire online?
If you do not register at My.QuestForHealth.com, you will not receive your results. This registration step is necessary in order to match your identity and process your results. If you register, but do not complete the online health risk assessment questionnaire, your results will be delayed, and your report will be downgraded to a version that does not incorporate your self-reported data collected on the health questionnaire. You will have two weeks to complete your health questionnaire following your screening, otherwise your report will be automatically downgraded and your results will be sent out. After this two-week period, you will not have another opportunity to complete the health questionnaire.

What if I do not receive a notification that my results are ready?
If it has been approximately 5 days since you had your screening, and you did not receive an email that your results are ready, please complete the following steps:
1. Confirm that you completed your registration at My.QuestForHealth.com.
2. Confirm that you completed the online health questionnaire, and you clicked “Submit” following the completion of your assessment.
If either of these steps were not complete before, your results will now be processed. Please allow at least 3 days after this step for your results to be ready once you have completed both the screening and the online health questionnaire. If you still do not have results after this time, or you confirmed you completed the My.QuestForHealth.com registration and health questionnaire, you may contact DLO at 800-891-2917 for assistance.

What should I do after I receive my results?
You should receive an email when your results are available online. Please note that results are best viewed on a desktop or laptop computer. We strongly advise that you share these results with your healthcare provider.

What is fasting, and is it required?
Fasting for a lab test means that you should not eat or drink anything except water before having a lab test to ensure the most reliable results.

Fasting is required on all Blueprint for Wellness testing to ensure your results provide an accurate depiction of your health. Do not eat or drink anything other than water for 9-12 hours prior to your screening time. Please drink plenty of water and take any medications as directed by your doctor during the fasting period.

If you did not fast and would like us to perform the test anyway, we will complete your draw and note it on the report for reference.

What is PHIS?
A Physician Health Information Session (PHIS) is available to you after you receive your Blueprint results. A PHIS enables you to remotely receive health information and recommendations from a board-certified physician, through our partner, PWNHealth. A PHIS allows you to review your abnormal test results with a physician and discuss personalized information related to your results including resources to help make informed decisions about your health.

Why should I schedule a PHIS?
The PHIS service is available to help you quickly get answers to questions about your screening results from a board-certified physician. For example, if you have a family history of diabetes, and your glucose result was in the high range, you can schedule a time to have a PWNHealth physician discuss what that result means specifically for you, all without a co-pay or any additional fees. These physicians can also help you determine if you need follow-up care.

How do I schedule my PHIS?
You can schedule your PHIS online or by phone:
To schedule online, go to: TH.PWNHealth.com/DLO-PHIS
To schedule over the phone, call: 1-888-389-8907
You can choose to have a physician call you ASAP with the “ASAP” option, usually within 48 hours, or you can schedule a time for a physician to call you at your convenience with the “Schedule” option.

What can I expect from a PHIS?
Physicians are available to answer any questions regarding your wellness screening results, or they can walk through your results with you. PWNHealth wants to make sure you get your health questions answered during the PHIS, so they encourage you to raise any questions you may have around your health concerns. Please note that these wellness information sessions do not include diagnosis or treatment. The goal is to connect you with resources to make healthy choices and follow up on your healthcare needs. A PHIS call can last anywhere from 5-20 minutes.

What if the My.QuestForHealth.com site can’t find my record?
Don't worry, just click "ok" and click the "continue" button again. You will create your participant record in the next steps.

The page states “no program available.” What does that mean?
This means that your results from your recent screening at a DLO PSC are not ready yet. You will receive an email when your results are ready or you can check back at a later time.

What if the My.QuestForHealth.com site says I already have a user account or that my email is already in use?
Unfortunately, if you have previously participated in Blueprint for Wellness through an employer-based screening or health plan, you cannot use the same username or email address associated with that account at this time. You will need to create another username and use a different email address for this account.

What if I’ve forgotten my username or password?
If you’ve forgotten your username or password to My.QuestForHealth.com, follow the instructions below to retrieve your login information:

For forgotten username: If you select the “username” link, you will need to provide the email address associated with your account and your date of birth. As long as the email address/date of birth combination provided matches what is on file, you will receive an email with your username.

For forgotten password: If you select the “password” link, you will need to provide your username and date of birth. As long as the username/date of birth combination provided matches what is on file, you will receive an email with a link to reset your password.

Can I submit my testing to my health insurance company for reimbursement?
No, because you ordered this testing for yourself, it is not reimbursable by health insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid. Payment for the services must be collected prior to screening.

Can I order Blueprint for Wellness tests on behalf of my minor child?
No, Blueprint for Wellness testing is not available for anyone under 18 years of age.

Why do I see two charges for different amounts on the receipt for my Blueprint for Wellness screening?
Your receipt for these services will be itemized as a $5 fee for the collection of your biometrics and blood specimen, and a second line item for the Blueprint for Wellness package you selected.

Are my results confidential?
Yes. We value and understand that your privacy is very important and we have put multiple steps in place to ensure confidentiality. All information obtained from your wellness screening experience is Protected Health Information (PHI) and is secured in accordance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

What if I had prior Blueprint testing, will my results be included?
At this time, your results from previous Blueprint for Wellness screening(s) will not be available for viewing online under this account unless you also purchased those through DLO Direct Blueprint for Wellness.

What exactly is included in a Basic Health Profile?

+

General Health

  • Glucose - an energy source for the body; can determine your risk for diabetes or a pre‐diabetic condition
  • Calcium - one of the most important minerals in the body; essential for the proper functioning of muscles, nerves, and the heart. It is required for blood clotting and the formation of bones

Proteins

  • Albumin - a small protein produced in the liver; the major protein in serum
  • Total Protein - measures albumin as well as all other proteins in serum

Electrolytes

  • Sodium - vital to normal body processes, including nerve and muscle function
  • Potassium - vital to cell metabolism and muscle function
  • CO2 (carbon dioxide, bicarbonate) - helps to maintain the body’s acid-base balance (pH)
  • Chloride - helps to regulate the amount of fluid in the body and maintain the acid-base balance

Kidney Tests

  • BUN (blood urea nitrogen) - waste product filtered out of the blood by the kidneys; conditions that affect the kidneys have the potential to affect the amount of urea in the blood
  • Creatinine - a waste product produced in the muscles; filtered out of the blood by the kidneys so blood levels are a good indication of how well the kidneys are working

Liver Tests

  • ALP (alkaline phosphatase) - an enzyme found in the liver and other tissues, bone; elevated levels of ALP in the blood are most commonly caused by liver disease or bone disorders
  • ALT (alanine aminotransferase, also called SGPT) - enzyme found mostly in the cells of the liver and kidneys; a useful test for detecting liver damage
  • AST (aspartate aminotransferase, also called SGOT) - enzyme found especially in cells in the heart and liver; also a useful test for detecting liver damage
  • Bilirubin - a waste product produced by the liver as it breaks down and recycles aged red blood cells
