Why Use Home Health Screening?2 Minutes Read
Home-based health screening has
recently been on the rise owing to reasons like convenience and
reluctance to visit medical clinics given the pandemic. An often cited
reason we also hear from our existing home screening patients is the lack of time
due to family and work commitments.
However, health should never be neglected. Booking your medical check up with us is an easy and fuss-free 5 minutes process through WhatsApp. These are some reasons of doing your health tests at home:
1. Time Savings
Bringing the entire family out to the clinic can be time-consuming, on top of having to navigate traffic and to coordinate a the trip amongst family members.
Conversely, having our health screener travel to your place for health screening means your family can skip the queue, have your blood drawn in the comforts of your home and to have more time to sleep in on a weekend.
2. Mobility Reasons
Health screening can also be done for patients who may find it difficult to travel. For instance, these may be elderlies or even wheelchair bound patients. Post screening consultation is also done via telemedicine to maximise convenience for our patients.
3. Minimizing Crowding Related Risks
For those who may be concerned about mingling in crowds or other patients and catching a bug, our mobile health screening is a good alternative to minimize this risk.
