Screening & Testing to Build Referrals

The summer is filled with social gatherings that provide opportunities to promote your services and educate neighbors about Home Health and Hospice care. Consider hosting a mini health fair or sponsoring a medical screening booth at a popular event.

Medical screenings provide opportunities to discuss healthy life choices, long term care planning, and the benefits of Home Health and Hospice care should the need arise. It also identifies you as an expert in healthy aging and demonstrates your commitment to maintaining a healthy community.

The goal of a health fair screening is to bring to light any issues that may suggest a follow-up discussion with a medical professional, and not to make definitive diagnosis. Keep in mind when selecting screenings that people are more likely to participate when the results are immediate.

Here are some tests you may want to offer:

  • Glucose
  • Blood Pressure
  • BMI
  • Cholesterol
  • Flexibility, Endurance and Strength testing
  • Hearing
  • Spirometry
  • Pulse oximetry
  • Memory diagnostic
  • Bone density
  • Skin Cancer
  • Vision testing

Be sure to stock up on condition specific materials and swag to hand out for those future referrals.
