Many biometric testing programs collect less sensitive data than that collected by Medisys, and rely on non-medically certified individuals for data review and interpretation. Medisys uses on-site, highly accurate and specific biometric screening tests that are efficient, cost effective and highly non-disruptive for our clients because our certified clinicians/technicians come directly to the workplace. Resultant employee health data is always reviewed, audited, and interpreted by an expert physician.
How it Works:
Biometric screenings are an effective method in identifying health risks due to unhealthy lifestyle behaviors, and can provide the necessary information and data to utilize intervention strategies and preventive measures to reduce or mitigate these risks.
On-site biometric testing includes:
- Body Mass Index (BMI)
- Blood pressure
- Waist circumference (abdominal girth)
- Fasting glucose/blood sugar (the amount of sugar in the blood)
- Total cholesterol
- HDL and LDL cholesterol level
- Triglyceride level (the amount of fatty acids in the blood)
All values are stored on our online health portal for ongoing tracking and employee health literacy.
Early detection and Intervention saves lives. Medisys’ Biometric Screening Plus provides employees with the information and tools they need to manage their health and provides aggregate data on the health of thei employee population. This enables companies to focus their wellness spending, track health improvements over time, and measure the return on their wellness investment.
