Biometric screenings are required, usually by employers, to create a medical baseline for a company's health iniatives and incentives. Most often, a biometric screening consists of:
- Basic metrics - height, weight, waist
- Blood pressure
- Cholesterol testing
- Glucose testing
Also called executive health exams, biometric screenings are required for various insurance reasons. Many times, employers can lower their company's insurance premium for life and/or health insurance by implementing a program to improve employee health. Biometric screenings are also valuable for those looking to get a screen shot of their overall health.
