“Failing to plan is planning to fail,” thus, goes an age-old adage! And yet what is often left unsaid is the fact that it is impossible to plan appropriately if you do know what you’re planning for! An assessment of conditions and the knowledge of objectives is fundamental to any planning exercise and eventual success or failure of an enterprise.
As we apply the aforementioned paradigm to our health, it perfectly fits. The objective, obviously, is to attain or stay in good health but we often do not understand the present condition of our health and thereby, do not know how to prepare for a possible bout of illness, disease or disability. Thus, a comprehensive health risk assessment is the perfect antidote to this.
Given that several health conditions such as cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and hypertension amongst others are caused by what doctors call them to be – modifiable health risks, a health risk assessment goes a long way in assessing the current wellness measure and the imminent possibility of illness for any individual.
ekincare has developed a comprehensive health risk assessment tool that measures various parameters bucketed under specific buckets to offer a more systematic approach to data collection and subsequent assessment.
The aforementioned pattern of data collection helps assign a health score to each individual. This is a scientifically ascertained value, and over a while, it could improve or decline – thereby establishing a trend in the individual’s health pattern.
The objective of the HRA, thus, is to identify the possible health risks and thereby pave the way for developing an appropriate road map for recovery.
