4 Reasons an Onsite Biometric Screening Makes Sense

Published by HealthSource Solutions on


An onsite biometric screening gives employees the opportunity to learn and understand their health numbers, and not lose sight of the importance of preventive care and healthy habits.

4 Reasons an Onsite Biometric Screening Makes Sense

1. Informed, Happy, and Healthy Employees

Employees walk away from a biometric screening appointment with their health numbers in hand and reputable resources of helpful information. They are more likely to report positive feelings about their employer and their role in the company when provided opportunities like this.

2. Informed Employers

Biometric screening companies share aggregate reports of employee BMI, blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar numbers with employers. These reports very clearly identify emerging lifestyle-related health issues affecting your workforce. Your wellness program can be tailored to the needs of your employees.

3. Convenience With Fingerstick Testing

Having the convenience of knowing your health numbers at your worksite is key to helping your employees know where to begin making lifestyle changes. Participants can expect accurate results from bloodwork obtained through a fingerstick.

4. Immediate Results

Results from a fingerstick test are known in a few moments, allowing immediate feedback. This permits the health professional to discuss results and share next steps. For these reasons, HealthSource Solutions has decided to solely offer fingerstick testing and analysis to clients.

What happens at an onsite biometric screening?

A typical onsite biometric screening appointment lasts 10 minutes from beginning to end. First, key biometrics such as height, weight, blood pressure, cholesterol, and glucose (blood sugar) are measured. Trained professionals then review individual results, using this teachable moment to help participants identify potential next steps to reduce their risk of chronic disease.
