What is a health screening?
Regular health screenings or preventive exams are important components of employee health and wellness. They are the foundation of employee health improvement, and are performed to determine the possible presence of a disease or other health problems. Health screenings can be conducted routinely as preventive measures, or may be administered when suspicion of a specific health issue arises.
Early detection of the risk factors for certain health problems can lead to lower disease rates, reduced employer health care costs, reduced absenteeism, enhanced job satisfaction, and increased productivity. When participants are equipped with good information, it not only provides actionable results, but directly impacts companies and helps them achieve a healthier work culture.
