Health Screenings

Health screening services are one of BaySport's core service offerings. We have been providing health screening services for over 25 years, starting in 1984 with Apple Computer.

Since our first client, BaySport has continued to be a leader in the field of wellness screenings by providing clinically-skilled employees, outstanding customer service, and unequaled dedication to detail for each screening event. As an industry leader, our team conducts over 10,000 health screens per year.

Health Screening Philosophy

BaySport believes that offering on-site health screening programs provides individuals with valuable personal information about their health. The beauty of on-site screening programs is that BaySport can provide immediate health related data, and take advantage of that "teachable moment" with the responsive audience (the participant). The goal is to educate early, enabling individuals to take control of their health and wellness decisions. We believe in the importance of developing positive wellness habits which can set-up all employees for future success in their work life and home life. This philosophy is mirrored after the CDC's Workplace Model.

The BaySport health screening philosophy is to evaluate, educate, and empower.

 

Our methodology is:

  • To educate the employee/participant as to their current health status based on quantifiable measurements;
  • To work with the employee/participant to develop short term and long term goals;
  • To provide program options, whether they are corporate based or community based, which create a road-map to achieve these goals;
  • To provide on-going counsel and support;
  • To provide follow up testing to reinforce goals and objectives.

Health Screening Components

BaySport health screenings are performed under the direction of the BaySport Preventive Medical Group. They are designed to assess overall health risks and assist participants in the development of an effective risk reduction plan.

Fingerstick test with immediate results and recommendations (fasting not required).

Fingerstick test with immediate results and recommendations (fasting not required).

Assesses whether your body weight is appropriate for your your height. It is a mathematical calculation: your weight (in kg) divided by your height (in meters) squared, Wt (kg)/Ht (m)2.

Fingerstick or veni-puncture options for Total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, Triglycerides and Glucose (fasting required). Follow-up consultation is included.

A sphygmomanometer and stethoscope is used on the upper arm to determine systolic and diastolic blood pressure.

An online health questionnaire that determines risk for diseases based on lifestyle habits and current biometric test results.

One-on-one private consultation to review biometric test results and provide specific lifestyle recommendations in order minimize health risk factors and encourage participation in health improvement strategies.

Follow-up Coaching for High Risk Participants - for someone who may have biometric test results that are out of range or at high risk. The goal of this program is to address and then modify the individual's behavior to improve their health.

What you can expect on the day of the event.

Our ideal health screening program will allow us to arrive at least 30-minutes in advance of the initial appointment so that the team may get badged, escorted and prepared at the proper location. The room should be easy to find, have direct electrical power, several tables and chairs, be large enough to afford some privacy and confidentiality and require minimal effort for set up. Participants will arrive according to their appointment time; walk-in participants will be accommodated when possible or slotted toward the end of the testing session. Participants will arrive, complete their forms and proceed through the stations, receiving their results with consultation and departing the screening area after approximately 20 minutes. When the screening has finished, everyone involved-- the corporate client, BaySport and, most of all, the participant-- feels that it was an effective and efficient program.

A mutually acceptable biometric testing schedule will be determined. BaySport's fee schedule is based upon a time and materials model. We work with our clients to determine the expected number of total participants and, as associated, a minimum number of participants to support this schedule.

Appointment Scheduling

To further enhance the client's program experience, BaySport provides the convenience of online scheduling. This web-based tool is customizable for each client and allows the participant to schedule his/her own appointment. Multiple appointment types, appointment reminders, appointment cancellations/rescheduling, and reporting capabilities are included. We have experience working with groups that range from 20 participants/day to over 750 participants/day. We work with our corporate clients to develop a schedule (number of participants/day and/or number of screening days) that best fits the client's schedule, facility, and budget.

Aggregate Reports

Following the health screening event, a detailed report of the health screening data is provided for the client to assess employee risk factors. Included with the presentation of the aggregate data is a summary assessment that highlights specific risk areas and recommended worksite wellness solutions to target the high risk results. We have found this information to be a valuable component of the process to develop an annual calendar of corporate wellness services.
