The Value of Biometric Screenings
Biometric screenings provide data and insights that can motivate participants to engage in their health and take action to reduce risk factors. Our country faces epidemics of inactivity, obesity and diabetes; biometric screenings speak to the symptoms of these behaviors and health conditions. Only 42 percent of more than eight million obese adults in the U.S. have been told by their physicians that they need to lose weight to improve their health. The data is clear; obese individuals who participate in biometric wellness screenings have average glucose values that reflect a pre-diabetic state and high cholesterol levels. Offering screenings to employees can help inform individuals not getting health information from their physicians.
