WPV conducts Health Screenings right at the employer's worksite using experienced, professional registered nurses to provide employees with real-time medical data regarding their current health status.
These 15 minute nurse coaching sessions provide a unique opportunity to educate employees on their current state of health. Our screenings can help find health complications before they become serious, so employees can take proactive steps to address their health needs.
WPV offers the following biometric screenings (which can be done independently or in conjunction with Wellness Assessments):
- General biometrics:
- Blood Pressure
- Heart Rate
- Blood Oxygen Saturation
- Body composition biometrics:
- Waist Circumference
- Body Mass Index (BMI)
- Body Fat Percentage and Full Body Composition
- Metabolic and Lipid panel biometrics:
- Total Cholesterol
- HDL ("Good Cholesterol")
- LDL ("Bad Cholesterol")
- Blood Sugar (Glucose)
- Glycohemoglobin Test (Hemoglobin A1C test or HbA1c
It’s no surprise that avoiding ailments through being proactive can lead to a healthier lifestyle – and lowered medical costs. We have found that 58% of those who were screened through our program required follow-up visits, often for blood pressure or cholesterol concerns and 3% had life-threatening issues. We help find health complications before they become serious so that your business can worry less about overwhelming health costs for your employees. Unlike traditional health care, which focuses on treatment, we invite you to focus on prevention, to stop health problems before they start.

WPV provides our clients with HIPAA-compliant reports after the biometric screening programs are conducted.
The comprehensive Aggregate Report is valuable to both the employer and health plan provider. The report presents the biometric data stratified by risk category for each site included in the employer's health screening program, and also ranks the employer’s sites for each test result. To maintain confidentiality, individual employees' biometric results are never shared with the employer and the statistically recommended minimum number of employees for any aggregate report is 50. This report also provides year-to-year comparisons for the company and all sites for up to five years. Self reported Health Risk Assessment (HRA) data can also be incorporated into the report as well.
Our Program Managers present an executive review of the findings in these reports. The review identifies the most significant risks, and makes recommendations for mitigating the risks through specific interventions. The findings from these reports provide the benchmarks that can help an organization measure their progress in employee wellness and suggest next steps for improving employee health.
