Rolling Strong offers drivers free DOT physical prep program

Ready Re-Cert program educates and coaches drivers to help them prepare for CDL medical recertification. Rolling Strong also adds a DOT Pre-Check Health Risk Assessment option to its offering.

Transportation health and wellness provider Rolling Strong is offering a free program to educate and coach professional drivers about DOT physicals and what they can do to prepare for recertification of their CDL medical certificate.

“Ready Re-Cert is designed to assist drivers in preparing for their DOT physicals by collecting and analyzing health-related metrics needed to predetermine their medical eligibility and identify any risk factors,” said Stephen Kane, president of Rolling Strong.

Drivers registering for Rolling Strong’s Ready Re-Cert program receive encouraging reminders at 90, 60, 30 days, two weeks, and two days before their next DOT medical exam. Drivers upload their medical cards into the app and can use a comprehensive in-app re-cert checklist that provides support and education as they approach the exam.

“Almost half of the drivers who need to recertify their medical certificates each year receive a short-term card indicating less than acceptable medical conditions,” Kane said. “This is a serious issue that Ready Re-Cert helps resolve by allowing drivers to determine fitness, nutrition, hydration, sleep and other approaches to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, as well as work with coaches to set goals and benchmark improvements.”

Rolling Strong also partnered with Global Health Metrics to build the first DOT Pre-Check Health Risk Assessment (HRA). For $10, drivers can access the precheck assessment to identify their current DOT certification readiness. The analytics tool identifies risk factors and provides additional feedback on exam preparation. The app also allows access to CVS minute clinic DOT physicals at discount prices. Companies can implement the Pre-Check HRA and DOT physicals as part of a full Rolling Strong program.

For drivers who need more care and attention while preparing for their CDL medical recertifications, Rolling Strong offers Advanced Ready Re-Cert. With the program, drivers can benefit from extra coaching within the 90-day pre-exam timeframe and access a series of podcasts and videos that are targeted to address issues they may have based on current screening data and their last exam. If recent screening data is not available, Advanced Ready Re-Cert users can take a DOT pre-exam to spot-check their current condition.

“Professional drivers continue to be burdened by a challenging lifestyle that results in hypertension, obesity, sleep apnea, diabetes, lack of proper agility, or other comorbidities,” Kane added. “With Ready Re-Cert they can target those issues for improvement in advance of their next DOT physical. We are pleased to help drivers with this new program that improves their health and wellness.”
