Biometric Screenings

Biometric Screenings

A biometric screening captures key health data to identify individuals at risk for health issues such as diabetes, high cholesterol, etc. The goal of administering screenings is to reduce health risks, improved health, reduction in healthcare costs and improved workforce productivity.

Our on-site biometric screenings include the following measurements:

  • Blood pressure
  • Height/weight
  • BMI and/or Waist circumference
  • Body Fat %
  • Full Lipid Panel including Cholesterol, LDL, HDL, Triglycerides, and Glucose
  • 20 point Chemistry Panel
  • Tobacco usage (can be collected via self-reporting or a cotinine test)

Biometric screenings are an important component in an overall wellness program for both the organization and its’ members or employees. Improving the health of individuals by providing them with health data, offering essential tools and education and having the data to predict future health concerns and costs will truly help move the needle in wellness.

Health Gauge can implement either onsite biometrics or physician-led biometrics using a primary care provider and emailed/faxed in results. The physician-led option allows financial resources to be allocated towards other areas of the program including incentives and coaching to drive engagement, improve health and lower costs on those whom have the greatest impact on the health plans claims. For remote employees that would be unable to attend on-site health screenings or for smaller sites, Health Gauge offers a variety of options including a lab collection network with over 1,300 sites.
