Our biometric screening includes some body measurements and collection of a small blood sample. The blood sample is collected by a finger stick. Samples are processed onsite, and the participant can be given immediate feedback. A finger stick is also usually faster than a blood draw and is considered by many participants to be less invasive.
Wellness Screening Measures
The screening measures collected are determined by the goals of your customized health and wellness program and the other characteristics of your employees as a group.
Body measurements may include:
Height and weight — to calculate body mass index as a measure of obesity
Body fat percentage — an alternative measure of obesity
Waist — a measure of abdominal obesity and an indicator of diabetes risk
Hip — to calculate waist-to-hip ratio, a measure of abdominal obesity
Neck — to calculate sleep apnea risk
Blood pressure — to calculate cardiovascular disease risk
Tests using the blood sample may include:
Lipids (HDL, LDL, total cholesterol, triglycerides) — to calculate cardiovascular disease risk
Blood glucose — to calculate diabetes risk
Cotinine — to detect tobacco use
A big challenge for health and wellness programs is managing the data from all of the different screening sources, then verifying eligibility, consolidating results, managing exceptions, and providing timely feedback to participants. In many cases employers are overwhelmed by the complexity of using screening data for results-based incentive programs. PRISEWell optimizes your investment in biometric screenings via our robust technology that allows targets to be set, reasonable alternatives to be managed, and results to be reported in real time.
