Increasing adoption preventive healthcare

Disease prevention is possible due to routine healthcare tests. The adoption of routine healthcare tests is also increasing.
“The prevalence of transmittable diseases is also increasing. People are vulnerable to bacterial and viral infections due to unhealthy food habits, which is increasing the demand for tests such as malaria and TB, which are prevalent in tropical countries,” according to Amber.
Emergence of corporate wellness programs
Corporate wellness programs are activities that are designed to support healthy behavior improve the health conditions of employees. Corporate wellness programs include several services such as health risk assessment, nutrition and weight management, smoking cessation, fitness services, and stress management.
Corporate wellness programs also include health tests. Such tests include cholesterol testing, body mass index (BMI), blood glucose levels, BP tests, blood and urine tests. Organizations offer healthcare assessment programs at on-site workplace events.
Increase in adoption of premarital screening
Premarital screening involves testing for infectious, genetic, and transmissible diseases. This is to prevent the further risk of disease transmission between couples and their children. Due to increasing awareness about the benefits of premarital screening, the number of premarital programs that aim to educate couples and provide accurate and unbiased information is increasing.
