Studies show that executives who took a medical physical had 20% fewer health claims and lost 45% fewer days at work than those who did not. When company executives and employees receive these exams, it’s proven to lead to greater performance and more time spent doing the job.
While society today is looking for more innovative ways to increase productivity and performance, simply being in the office more is a good place to start. But being in the office isn’t enough—these employees and executives must be healthy to work at their best.
Good health improves production
Good health is essential to the maintenance of each employees’ earning power so that he/she and his/her family may enjoy the full benefit of his/her employment without the loss of income and without the financial burden of a disabling disease.
By instituting an active program, your Company can reduce the severity of disease and the direct costs of medical and insurance premiums.
A Preventive PLUS physician and the employees’ physician work together to keep the patient well.
Neither is a substitute for the other because the Preventive Plus physician advises the patient how to keep well and detect unsuspected illness, while the employees’ physician concentrates on restoring health when illness does occur.
Executive health surveillance
Medical Screening and Health Surveillance are two fundamental strategies for optimizing a person’s health. Although the terms are often used interchangeably, they are quite distinct concepts. Medical screening is, in essence, only one component of a comprehensive Health Surveillance program. The fundamental purpose of screening is early diagnosis and treatment of the individual and thus has a clinical focus. The fundamental purpose of surveillance is to detect and eliminate the underlying causes such as hazards or exposures of any discovered trends and thus has prevention focus.
Both can contribute significantly to the success of one’s health and managing the appropriate intervention programs. However The Preventive Plus “Health Surveillance” requirements are generally clinically focused (e.g.,medical and work histories, physical assessment, biological testing) with information obtained from the clinical processes used in the monitoring and analysis elements of Health Surveillance. Preventive Plus’s Medical Screening and Health Surveillance Program are based on the judicious use of the best current available scientific research in making decisions and recommendations concerning the individual management of patients.
