Q: What is new about this system?

A: ReadySet will provide a new tool for employees.  In the "My Health" portal, you will be able to view your own employee health test results, appointments, and other information.  Your old test data from the previous Employee Health system will be loaded into ReadySet in the near future, and may not be available immediately after ReadySet is launched.

Also, managers will now be able to view the compliance status of their direct reports for flu, TB, and other testing.

Q: How do I log in to ReadySet?

A: For most employees, you will use your normal NCH user name and password. Some special groups that are not maintained in Lawson, such as volunteers, will create their own user name and password.  

Q: As a manager, do I have a "My Health" portal?

A: Yes. When you log in you will have the "My Health" tab, as well as "Supervisor" tab.

Biometric Screening (Metabolic Syndrome Screen)

Complete a Biometric Screening at one of the NCH onsite locations or submit a Physician Biometric Screening Results Form. (You must use the 2018-2019 form.) Click here for the form.

  • Complete this anytime between March 1, 2018 and February 28, 2019.

Click here for a User Guide for the OhioHealth Tool.
  • If it is a Level 2 Snow Emergency, the OhioHealth Biometric Screening event will be cancelled at the scheduled location.  You will need to reschedule your appointment.
  • Employees and spouses can submit results from their own physician by completing a Physician Biometric Screening Results Form.   Employee Wellness must receive a completed form by February 28, 2019.  A confirmation letter will be sent to indicate that the form has been received.  Keep this letter for your records.

To schedule your screening (for both employees and insured spouses)           


Keep in mind that the Biometric Screening is a screening for Metabolic Syndrome and obesity-related conditions and does not reflect risk of all health aspects (ie. mental well-being).

Tobacco Surcharge

A negative cotinine (nicotine) test result for both the employee and insured spouse must be received by Employee Wellness in order to avoid a $40.00 per pay Tobacco Surcharge.  If a negative result was submitted to Employee Wellness in the past, you do not need to retest or resubmit your result.   Employees hired in 2018 can find their Cotinine Test Result from their New Hire Screening by logging into Ready Set linked from Anchor.  Print and fax your result to Employee Wellness.  (614-355-4298) OhioHealth’s Biometric Screening will offer cotinine testing as well if you, as the spouse, need to test this year.  (You can attend any onsite screening to complete the cotinine test.)    For more information about the Tobacco Surcharge, testing with your own physician, how to re-test at any time throughout the year, and how to complete a Tobacco Cessation Program to avoid the Tobacco Surcharge, review the information on Wellness Matters.
