Our biometric health screening services are a key component of our comprehensive corporate wellness programs and are designed to help improve health awareness among employees and provide data for employers to gauge the health of their employees and track improvement over time. Biometric health screenings help identify, but not diagnose, risk factors that could signal the presence of an existing disease or the potential for developing one.
Based on the results of employees’ health screenings, US Wellness provides targeted intervention strategies, relevant health education and coaching, and other appropriate preventive measures to help manage and reduce these health risks and encourage employees to adopt healthy lifestyle changes and take a more proactive role in their health. Aggregate health information about their employee population allows organizations to structure their employee health management program and design wellness initiatives in an effort to reduce overall health costs and improve the health and productivity of their workforce.
Health Screening Components
Our health screenings are comprised of the following elements:
Health Risk Assessment (HRA)
US Wellness offers an online questionnaire that collects self-reported data from employees on their lifestyle, health goals, motivation, and willingness to make necessary behavior changes.
Our standard onsite biometric screenings measure a variety of important health factors including height, weight, BMI, pulse, and blood pressure.
For onsite health screenings, US Wellness conducts basic blood testing using a finger stick or venous blood draw (venipuncture). Finger stick tests yield immediate results; venous blood draws are sent to a laboratory for testing. Blood tests include a full lipid panel (total cholesterol, LDL, HDL, triglycerides) and glucose levels.
Biometric Screening Program Features
US Wellness designs a unique, branded online appointment scheduler for all of our clients with a custom URL for employees to access it.
Offsite Screening Options
We recognize the importance of employee participation for the overall success of the corporate wellness program and therefore offer offsite biometric screening options for remote employees or those unable to attend the scheduled onsite screening. Offsite options include a laboratory voucher for Walgreens or LabCorp, a home test kit, and a physician form. We also offer a custom, secure link for employees to submit the results of their offsite biometric screening by an approved physician.
Secure Data Capture
US Wellness was the first biometric screening provider to develop an electronic data capture (EDC) platform. Since 2005, US Wellness has maintained its HIPAA compliant EDC system and has provided the system for industry leading organizations, including Walgreens and GlaxoSmithKline.
Health Results and Education
US Wellness is committed to protecting the privacy of employees’ individual screening results. We adhere to strict guidelines to ensure employees’ health data remains confidential. Our team of licensed healthcare professionals informs employees of any measurements that are outside of normal ranges and offer recommendations, education, and coaching to help lower their risk.
US Wellness provides aggregate, de-identified data on the overall health of their employee population. We also share employee participation and engagement statistics and incentive tracking to help evaluate the success of the corporate wellness program.
