We tend to ignore medical check ups when we have no illness thanks to our busy work schedules. Working the entire week, stretching out late nights at work, living in remote affordable localities are some of the reasons why we opt to relax over the weekend rather than going out and getting a medical check-up done. Being cautious is something that we always tend to ignore. Increasing competition in all industries is forcing companies to keep their doors open to customers 24*7. This creates the necessity of people working at nights. Changes like these in our normal lifestyle encourages health problems. It is only when there is an illness, we start looking for doctors and laboratories to get medical tests done and cure our health problems.
To overcome this ignorance, having regular health check ups in companies can help immensely. Regular check ups enable us to diagnose serious health ailments at an early stage, saving us from aliments and also the costs needed to cure the illness. For example, visiting a dentist need not be necessary only when you develop a cavity of for a root canal. It could be for just a gum check or cleaning of teeth. Bleeding gums while brushing, flossing or if you experience a persistent bad breath are early signs for bigger dental problems. If you sense a cavity, filling it early will save the amount on a root canal treatment. What you have avoided is a major dental problem and definitely the cost involved.
Most ailments requiring surgery do not occur overnight but build up over a period of time. In many cases such ailments can be detected early through regular check ups. You can save as much as 50% on healthcare costs with regular check-ups, exercise and balanced diet. The idea is to avoid severe health complications which could also take a toll on your physical well-being as well as financial health.
Our lifestyle and food habits have a significant impact on our body and health. Some of the most common aliments that affect people are blood pressure, diabetes, hypertension, obesity and so on. Getting these check ups done on a regular basis will help diagnosing such problems at an early curable stage. Getting them done in companies ensures that employees do not neglect these important regular checks needed. “Health is wealth” is a good saying that we all know. Good health of employees ensures good productivity which in turn ensures the company’s productivity and success.
Unfortunately, given the broken health care system we end up paying hefty amounts to some doctors who prescribe unnecessary medicines, tests and even suggest operations which are not required. This causes tensions and burns our pockets for no reason. Companies organizing regular health check-ups by recognized and trustworthy doctors, clinics and hospitals can prove beneficial to its employees. It will create an awareness among people about it’s importance, help them to remain fit, diagnose health problems at an early stage and make sure that we follow the saying, “Prevention is better than cure”.
