Focuses on the issue of preventive health screenings. The author suggests using the guidance provided by the US Preventive Services Task Force to inform decisions about preventive screenings. Evidence-based preventive programs may reduce health costs for the organization. Some companies offer incentives for participation, but others do not (often these programs are successful because they tie in employee health with the organization’s culture). The article suggests that the best approach to offering preventive services is to be an “alert consumer,” relying on guidance from experts in the field, and then evaluating the results of such services.
