Online Lab Results

October is Health Literacy Month, which promotes the importance of individuals understanding information about their health. According to the National Assessment of Adult Literacy, nearly 90% of adults lack the health literacy skills needed to manage and prevent disease. Additionally, studies have found that limited health literacy skills correlate with poor health outcomes, including higher hospitalization rates and less frequent use of preventative measures.

Access to health data helps raise awareness

With more than 70% of medical decisions based on laboratory testing*, laboratory results are valuable insights into an individual’s health. Online laboratory results from an applicant’s life insurance application provide a unique opportunity for individuals to learn more about their health. ExamOne’s online laboratory results**, Inside Look®, makes it easy for applicants to view and understand their laboratory test results. Watch a demo of the patented ocular view of our online laboratory results.

Unknown health conditions may also be revealed. For example, the American Diabetes Association says there are more than 7 million Americans who are undiagnosed diabetics. Elevated A1c levels revealed from laboratory testing could alert an individual to visit their physician to determine if more targeted care is needed.

Giving your applicants more

Inside Look is a secure and comprehensive reporting tool that enables applicants to become more aware of their health, while providing life insurance agents and carriers the opportunity to strengthen relations with their clients. The interactive and “no cost” experience is a valuable benefit to completing the life insurance exam process. Applicants repeatedly share their positive reviews of receiving their personal health information.

Health Literacy Month is a good opportunity to promote the value of an individual’s health data. While protecting their family with life insurance, they are also empowered to maintain or improve their  health by receiving an “inside look” into their current health status.

Protecting your family and loved ones are very important responsibilities. However, you can’t protect them if you are not healthy yourself. Early in the year, “health” goals are especially popular. Health and laboratory screenings are a couple of ways one can better understand his or her health status — and getting them may be easier than you think.

Be proactive
Make sure you are getting proper preventive care, like health screenings and check-ups that are recommended for your gender and age. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provides a checklist at cdc.gov/prevention/. Many employers and health plans also offer health screenings for their employees and members. Take advantage of these opportunities and other resources that may be available.

Know your current status

If you have applied for life insurance, most policies provide you with laboratory results from your application process, and you can share with your physician. With more than 70% of medical decisions based on laboratory testing,* these results are valuable insights into your health. More than 1.4 million applicants have accessed this information through Inside Look® as an additional benefit from a life insurance exam. Last year, the report was also enhanced to include Spanish and French versions. Our patented ocular view makes it easy for applicants to view and understand their laboratory test results — see our online laboratory results demo.

“I am a physician and I think this process and online access is fantastic and I’d love to have my employer begin using it for giving our patient’s results. I cannot think of any way to improve it.”

Screenings are a way to keep track of your health any time of the year. The awareness of your own health status lets you have peace of mind so you can protect your family with essentials like life insurance coverage. Find more ways to protect your family at MyExamOne.com.
