Third Annual Biometric Screening at Premier

The staff at Premier Consulting Associates recently participated in its third annual onsite Biometric Screening and Health Evaluation program provided by Interactive Health.

Employees conveniently registered online, completed a Health Risk Assessment and had their blood drawn in the office.  Within 48 hours, they received their results via email so that they could share them with their physician to better manage their health.

A wellness program provides tools and resources to help employees live a longer, healthier life. Components of a wellness program include:

  1. A Health Evaluation, which is a convenient, comprehensive state-of-the-art blood screening that includes, but is not limited to, identification of cardiovascular disease risks (high cholesterol, high blood pressure) diabetes, liver and kidney disease, anemia, and blood, bone and muscle disease (including certain types of cancer).
  2. Health Questionnaire
  3. Blood Pressure Reading
  4. Venipuncture Blood Draw
