Leaders in Onsite Health Screenings & Assessments

To measure is to manage! A first step in creating a targeted, effective strategy to improve health and well-being is to assess the current health status of your employees. We offer several services to help you establish a crucial baseline and develop goals for your wellness programs:

HealthQuotient (HQ)

The HQ is the health risk assessment available through our Methodist Health & Wellness Management portal, powered by WebMD. The HQ scores a participant’s health status, lifestyle behaviors, calculates risk levels and provides recommendations for health improvement and behavior change. Concise and direct recommendations are provided to help participants make healthy lifestyle changes. The aggregate HQ report assesses population health status and provides a benchmark for assessing population health improvement.

Biometric Screening

This screening is a key component in helping employees’ learn more about their health and potential risks. The following will be evaluated: blood pressure, height, weight, waist girth, a blood test for glucose, and a full lipid (fat in the blood) profile. Oral cotinine tests for tobacco usage can also be provided. The aggregate biometric screening report assesses population health status and provides a benchmark for assessing population health improvement.

Vascular Age Screening (CIMT-Carotid Intimal Thickness)

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death for men and women. Heart & Vascular Screening Packages through MWS can help employees understand their risk, which is the first step toward prevention. Using ultrasound, the thickness of the arteries is measured to produce a risk assessment that estimates a individual’s “vascular age.” Blood vessels are also checked for blockages. A cardiologist reviews the report and provides recommendations to reduce risk.

Drug Screening

Methodist Wellness Services performs Compliant DOT Drug and Alcohol testing programs for workers that fall under U.S. Department of Transportation regulations such as employees in aviation, trucking, railroads, mass transit, pipelines, and other transportation industries. MWS also performs and non-DOT drug screening for workers employed in positions that do not require drug screening under DOT regulations but their companies have drug-testing policies in place.

Skin Cancer Screening

Each year in America more than a million people are diagnosed with the most common forms of skin cancer—basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. Tens of thousands more are diagnosed with the more deadly malignant melanoma. Early detection is the key to successful treatment of all forms of skin cancer. Because the skin’s surface is visible, the trained eye of a physician can detect abnormalities easily during a visual examination. Skin cancer screenings can be performed as part of a health fair or other screening event or as an independent event.
