Biometric Screenings
Improving health awareness

Biometric screenings are evaluations intended to identify past, current, and potential medical problems and are a critical component in any of our wellness programs. Our St. Thomas Urgent Care health specialists use them to identify individuals who might have risk factors for metabolic syndrome, which could lead to heart disease and diabetes. Biometric screenings are an effective method in identifying health risks due to unhealthy lifestyle behaviors, and can provide the necessary information and data to utilize intervention strategies and preventive measures to reduce these risks.

These results are shared with each individual on a confidential basis and include recommendations on how to reduce risk factors, which may include follow-up care or lifestyle changes. For some employees, a timely biometric health screening can have a tremendously positive impact on their health, productivity, and well-being. When aware of these findings, employees are more likely to take a proactive role in their health and lifestyle changes.

Because of St. Thomas Health Care's versatility and nationwide footprint, you'll have the option of scheduling biometric screenings at your Urgent Care worksite, a nearby St. Thomas Medical Center.

Each biometric screening will measure these essential health factors:

  • Height measurement
  • Weight measurement
  • Body Mass Index (BMI)
  • Blood pressure
  • Waist circumference (abdominal girth)
  • Fasting glucose/Blood sugar (the amount of sugar in the blood)
  • Total cholesterol
  • HDL and LDL cholesterol level
  • Triglycerides level (the amount of fatty acids in the blood)

A teachable moment

If at least three of an individual's measurements lie outside the normal range, they'll be identified as "at risk" for future diabetes or heart disease. "At risk" individuals will also receive a list of recommendations for lowering their risk, which may include follow-up care or lifestyle changes, such as diabetes self-management. A St. Thomas Health Care specialist may recommend a wellness intervention or health coaching which can be accessed online or in-person.

Patient Privacy

We maintain strict privacy and confidentiality guidelines, and do not share employees' individual results with you, the employer. After the screening results are processed, your employees will receive a confidential report that indicates which, if any, of their measurements are normal and which, if any, are outside the normal range.
