LIFEWISE Health Enhancement and Wellness Solutions

Saint Luke’s LIFEWISE™ provides employers with a comprehensive toolkit of wellness solutions and options for managing employee health.

Lab screenings

We provide a customized screening program tailored to the employer’s needs for assessing clinical health risks, and we deliver personal attention to each employee at on-site screenings. Our laboratory screening options include anything that can be done in a doctor’s office.

LIFEWISE coordinates the experts at Saint Luke’s Regional Laboratories to come to your site. Choose from a full spectrum of laboratory tests beyond lipid panels, such as A1Cs for diabetes and complete metabolic panels to detect metabolic syndrome—all at health fair rates.

You can expect true fasting results for all employees, including shift workers; they can come in early and return to work quickly. With eHealth test results, we provide easy, anonymous online results your employees can print and share with their physician.

Saint Luke’s Regional Laboratories is a member of the Regional Laboratory Alliance (RLA), a network of hospital-based and physician-owned laboratories providing services throughout the Kansas City metro area. Membership in the RLA enhances our services, providing access to a broader menu of esoteric testing options such as cotinine testing.

Basic screening components include:

  • Total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, cholesterol ratio
  • Triglycerides
  • Blood glucose
  • Vitamin D
  • A1C
  • Complete metabolic panel

Our labs have managed health screening programs and tested thousands of employees in and around the Kansas City metro area for more than 25 years.

On-site metabolic testing

An exercise specialist from SHAPE Fitness Center can bring metabolic testing appointments for your employees to your location. Each appointment is scheduled for 30 minutes, and 15 sessions can be scheduled within one day. A minimum of six appointments are necessary for on-site scheduling.

Ergonomics

While many employees readily adapt to any workstation, these spaces are often not ideally suited for the unique needs of each of your employees. Basic equipment—including desks and chairs—should be evaluated for optimum alignment to prevent back problems and other conditions that could result from inadequate lumbar support or unnecessary bending, twisting, or reaching.

Our experts will conduct an on-site inspection of specific work areas and provide you with a report including basic recommendations for modifications to individual workspaces and group work areas.

In addition, our certified staff can come to your worksite to educate your employees on preventing work-related injuries.
