Biometric Screening

 

We all know that it’s hard to find time to visit a doctor for a regular check-up between work, family and extracurricular activities. This is where a Biometric Screening can make your life easier. It’s an easy way to identify health risks you may have.

A Biometric screening is a series of health tests intended to identify your medical risks and health issues. In a short time, we can assess a wide range of health screenings and deliver real-time results. Biometric screenings can also provide you the relevant information and data to utilize intervention strategies and preventive measures to reduce your risks.

After the results are in, you’ll receive a report with your testing results that you can submit to your insurance.

Some Essential Factors Associated with a Biometric Screening

  • Blood Pressure
  • Weight Measurement
  • Body Max Index
  • Health Measurement
  • Total Cholesterol
  • Triglycerides Level
  • Waist Circumference
  • HDL and LDL Cholesterol Level

Most doctors and clinics perform biometric screening as a part of a wellness program that consists the completion of health risk assessment (HRA) questionnaire and a consultation. If you also want to organize a biometric screening for your employees, drop us a line at Summit Occupational Medicine.

DOT Physicals & Employment Physicals

What are DOT Physicals?

Federal law requires drivers of commercial motor vehicles (DMVs) to receive regular physical examinations. These exams are defined as the “Department of Transportation Medical Examinations.” DOT physicals are highly regulated for the drivers’ safety. They detect physical, mental, and emotional issues that can affect a driver’s ability to safely drive a commercial vehicle. DOT medical examiners are specially trained to understand the regulations and prevent drivers from being inappropriately disqualified.

Employee physicals are designed to evaluate your employee’s health and their fit for work status. Most physicals capture the individual’s vital signs, past medical history, allergy information, and social history data. Our medical experts are specifically trained to understand and perform these procedures in accordance to state and federal regulations as well as your unique business needs. Depending on the industry and your company’s requirements, these exams can be done for pre-employment or regularly every year.

Our pre-employment physicals can include:

  • Regulatory and Compliance Examinations  – establish a medical baseline for employees according to certain regulations(DOT, DHHS, OSHA, etc.), and include periodic medical monitoring when indicated.
  • Fitness-For-Duty Examinations – confirm that employees returning from medical leave can perform their job duties.
  • Executive Wellness Examinations – establish baseline medical information as part of companies’ voluntary health and wellness initiatives.
  • Health Risk Assessments – confirm the biometric numbers/scores of employees as part of long-term health and wellness, and indicate potential areas of health risk.
