How Healthy Are Employees? Check Out Our Biometric Screening Results

Posted by Seraine Page on Wed, Mar, 29, 2023

Biometric screenings can easily improve your employees’ health.

What is this screening, you ask?

It’s a way to collect essential health data that can indicate whether a person is healthy or has a health issue they should be looking into. It’s often done on-site for companies looking to gather insight into their employees’ health.

Our biometric screenings include a variety of health measures such as:  

  • Cholesterol
  • Blood sugar
  • Blood pressure
  • Body Mass Index (BMI)
  • Waist circumference

For example, if someone is screened and it comes back that they have sky-high blood sugar, their cholesterol is through the roof, and they’re in a hypertensive crisis, they need to be seen by a doctor immediately. Sometimes, health issues don’t show any symptoms before it’s much too late.

That’s why we promote and offer biometric screenings to clients across the United States. It helps save lives and change lives for the better.

Below, we wanted to share our 2022 nationwide results with you from these life-saving screenings.

Health News & Ways to Save on Employer-Sponsored Health Plans

Posted by Seraine Page on Wed, Mar, 08, 2023

In recent health news: Despite the U.S. spending the most on health care, America still has the worst health outcomes among high-income countries.

The report, published by The Commonwealth Fund in its U.S. Health Care from a Global Perspective, found Americans are more likely to die younger — from avoidable causes — than residents of other countries. For example, the U.S. obesity rate is nearly double the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) standards.

For American employers, providing useful healthcare coverage is essential in keeping employees well. But it comes at a cost — especially for unhealthy employees who continue to develop more chronic health concerns — and that cost isn’t getting cheaper. Adding more fuel to the fire is the fact that starting April 1, about 15 million people will lose Medicaid coverage, with many switching to employer-based plans instead.

If you provide health insurance to workers or just want to see them generally healthy, this post is for you.

Here’s a look at important recent health news and ways for employers to keep healthcare costs down while also encouraging workers to stay healthy.
