What is a Biometric Screening?
A biometric screening is a comprehensive screening using multiple tests to assess different health indicators. Common health indicators include BMI, Cholesterol, A1C, Waist Circumference, and others. Biometric screenings helps individuals assess their risk of common health concerns, such as diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, and cardiovascular disease. The complete screening takes between 15 to 75 minutes, depending on the package chosen.
Who can benefit from Biometric Screenings?
Both employers and employees can benefit from organizing biometric screenings in the workplace. Employees will see an in-depth, data driven snapshot of their overall health. Employers receive an anonymized, aggregated report of the biometric screening results, which can help create initiatives that address health concerns within the workforce, with the goal of reducing absenteeism, lowering employee benefit costs, and managing chronic diseases.
