Health Screening Services™

 Administered by a Licensed Laboratory Services Provider

Worksite health screenings alone offer little ROI benefit, whereas a health assessment followed by screening, behavioral counseling, and incentives achieve favorable cost savings.

The American Heart Association is launching a science-based Health Screening Services business as part of a larger strategy to help create a culture of health and wellbeing for all Americans by increasing awareness of health risks and the importance of changing lifestyle behaviors.

The most effective workplace health screening models combine health screening with health assessment, followed by individual feedback that encourages activation and engagement in behavioral change, resulting in higher participation in health and wellness programs.

American Heart Association branded health screenings are compliant with HIPAA patient-privacy laws and the Americans with Disabilities Act. The health screenings are designed to create education and awareness of Life's Simple 7, the importance for consumers to know their personal health numbers and their personal health risk factors. The health screenings, combined with the health assessment and education also aim to motivate participants to make behavior changes or seek support for lifestyle changes and follow-up medical care as appropriate. On-site personal health consultations help participants understand their results.

The Association's Health Screening Services also include:

  • Event management appointment scheduling system
  • Incentives management activity-based tracking system
  • Robust online data analytics with interactive mapping features and cohort analysis

Blending the simplicity and effectiveness of the Association’s scientifically validated Life's Simple 7 and evidence-informed My Life Check Enhance with the power of objective biometric health screening data provides opportunities for employers to engage in best practices and strategies, to make improvements to workplace health programs and objectively track progress in employees’ heart health.

Convenience and Customization

Designed with convenience in mind, health screenings offered by the American Heart Association provide an easy-to-use, trusted employee interface for scheduling health screenings and obtaining results.

  • Depending on client customization, employees can attend an onsite health screening or get their health screening from healthcare providers, a national diagnostic laboratory facility, a national retail pharmacy (with a voucher), or at home (with a test kit).
  • A state-of-the-art registration and scheduling tool provides effortless registration and selection of time and location.
  • Results of the health screenings are automatically incorporated into employees’ My Life Check Enhance profiles before they take the health assessment to assure accurate and updated results.

Eligible Employer Size

American Heart Association Health Screening Services are available for employers that have no fewer than 500 employees eligible for screenings. For smaller employers interested in obtaining health screenings for their employees, we encourage you to check with your local Chamber of Commerce as well as with your local healthcare systems, which are often involved in administering community-based health screenings.
