Over the years, much research has gone into preventative screenings to help individuals live longer, healthier lives. Preventative screenings are one of the most important things a person can do for their health. Lahey Hospital & Medical Center is fully committed to helping their patients stay healthy through their Executive and Preventative Health Program.
Why Are Preventative Screenings So Vital?
One of the biggest reasons preventative screenings are so vital is because most every disease is easier to treat when it is discovered in its early stages. With the Executive Health Program, patients can receive a comprehensive one-day medical evaluation that addresses their known health risks, based on their age, current health, and their doctor’s recommendations.
This all-inclusive testing day allows individuals to protect the most vital aspects of their health. This battery of tests give a true overview into a person’s health so any issues that are found can be treated before they cause major disruptions with a person’s overall health. Testing includes:
- A full physical examination that tests all of the vital signs and major health components
- A thorough cardiovascular evaluation which includes all components
- A dermatology evaluation
- A hearing examination
- An eye examination
At the end of the day, when all of the examinations are complete, a patient will meet with the doctor to evaluate their results from all of the tests. The doctor will give the patient a plan of care that is focused on helping them maintain or improve their health so it can stay at optimal levels.
Stay on Schedule With Health Screenings
It is recommended those between the ages of 19-49 have a full physical every 1-3 years, depending on their health risk factors. After the age of 50, individuals need to have an annual health exam to ensure their health is protected.
