Business Health Screenings

Employee Health Screenings promote overall health and wellness for employees to decrease chronic disease states, improve employee health and productivity, and reduce long-term costs.

The employee health screening package includes:

Personal Health Profile

The Personal Health Profile (PHP) is a comprehensive Health Risk Assessment (HRA) designed to assess the current health status and potential future risks of an individual. The PHP includes a detailed questionnaire including health history and risk profile. The questionnaire can be completed online or hard copy in English or Spanish.

Personal Health Report

Each employee who participates in a health screening receives a customized Personal Health Report at their home. This reports the results of the screenings, comparative statistics and information as well as providing tips to improve health in a particular area. For many basically healthy employees, this information is enough to have them begin to make healthy changes in their lifestyle. The report is comprehensive yet easy to navigate and ideal to take with them when employees see their physicians.

Marketing

Your GHS wellness specialist will assist in marketing the screenings and education sessions.

Venipuncture Screening

The blood draw includes a Lipid panel, Hemoglobin A1c, TSH (thyroid), Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMET; sodium, potassium, creatinine, protein, etc.), and a Complete Blood Count (CBC) with differentials. If an employee has a result in the critical range our physician will contact them within two business days to discuss. GHS offers additional selected lab testing based on employer needs.

Biometric Screening

Biometric screening includes blood pressure, height and weight to calculate BMI, and waist measurement.

Personal Health Reports

Each employee who participates in the screening will receive an individual 24 page report outlining their results. These reports are mailed directly to the employee’s home, unless otherwise indicated.

Screening Results Education

After the Personal Health Reports are mailed, our Health Educator will come on-site to conduct group “Know Your Numbers” sessions to review the Personal Health Report (PHR) with the employees.

Company Aggregate Report

The Group Health Profile summarizes the percentage of employees, by gender, race and age, and outlines key health risks for specific diseases. This “health snapshot” will compare the health of your workforce to others in the market and identify specific health risks present in your workforce. The Business Health team will assist in developing a plan to address the high-risk employee groups and will recommend education sessions and disease management programs. The Group Health Profile will also allow you to trend, over time, the improvements in the health of your workforce. The aggregate report is generated and presented on an annual basis but is available by request prior to the end of the year.

Company HR Insight

Once the aggregate report is presented, your company representative has access to HR Insight, an Internet-based financial modeling tool to calculate ROI/savings based on lifestyle, behavior, and health status change.

GHS will conduct quarterly education sessions typically focusing on areas of interest or health risks identified from the Group Health Profile. A sample of topics includes:
