ConvergenceHealth announces seamless integration of biometric data into their Health Risk Assessments (HRA’s)via partner eHealthScreenings, eliminating self-reported inaccuracies and ultimately improving health risk management.
Jay Handline, CMO for ConvergenceHealth states, “Accuracy of self-reported data in HRA’s, continues to be a challenge in measuring changes for high risk areas. Biometric data is frequently NOT available from the employee, thus compromising the accuracy of HRA results. The addition of e-Health Screenings biometric testing eliminates this gap, and provides employers and employees with correct baseline values across all assessments.”
By promoting early detection, timely treatment, and responding to early warning signs, screening saves lives. Accurate reporting of baseline screening data like blood pressure for example, has been shown to provide up to a 50% reduction in deaths caused by strokes. Similarly, cholesterol levels are considered one of the most reliable predictors of future heart attacks and one of the most readily modified causes of coronary artery disease. Cholesterol screening, which is simple and inexpensive, identifies candidates for diet and drug therapies and can be done through a simple finger stick.
ByronGehring, CEO for ConvergenceHealth states, “Our collaborative mission is to make people aware of undetected health problems through health screenings. We are dedicated to providing the highest quality preventive screenings at an affordable rate.”
