People’s health is a priority that has taken on special relevance as a result of the 2020 health emergency. As a result, people have begun to prioritise regular medical check-ups.
Periodic medical check-ups are important because they allow:
Early diagnosis of diseases which can prevent them from worsening or becoming chronic.
Increased chances of treatment and cure if any disease is detected.
Added peace of mind for patients.
Results of check-ups provided by companies allow the detection of diseases and multiple risk factors. An example is LDL, the cholesterol that is harmful to our health. According to the Spanish Society of Cardiology (SEC), the level of cholesterol in the blood causes 22% of heart attacks and angina pectoris. Knowing the cholesterol level allows us to start preventive treatments that may be related to a change in eating habits or, in more serious cases, the start of a pharmacological regimen.
The blood test is a simple analysis of the number and types of cells in the blood. They not only give results on cholesterol; they give results for glucose and iron levels, among others.
With analytics, healthcare personnel get an overview of the state of our health. For doctors, it is a test of utmost importance since more than 70% of diagnoses are determined after requesting blood or urine tests.
PEOPLE AT THE SERVICE OF PREVENTION
The Occupational Risk Prevention Societies offer their clients regular medical check-ups for their staff. This service allows companies to have a statistical summary of the results and, thus, encourage healthy habits. This encouragement can have a direct impact on the physical well-being of their staff. It also allows the company to adapt to the limitations of people suffering from health issues.
At HTGROUP we have Mobile Units which make medical check-ups more comfortable and encourage staff participation. With the Mobile Units and the health and administrative staff of HTGROUP, companies can carry out reviews in the vicinity of their facilities.
