What is a Global Health Assessment?
- Medical assessment and follow-up appointment, to assess your current body mass index and other body measurements and any medical conditions related to your weight, as well as a risk assessment for co-morbidities, including high blood pressure, heart disease, sleep apnea, high cholesterol, diabetes, some cancers, etc.;
- Diagnostic testing, which may include a laboratory work-up, EKG, sleep study and cancer screenings;
- Nutrition assessment, to analyze current nutritional health, metabolism and body composition;
- Physical assessment, to look at cardiopulmonary health, muscle strength, flexibility, mobility and balance;
- Lifestyle assessment, to assess current lifestyle, identify your specific barriers to weight loss and provide self-management tools to monitor your progress and develop healthy coping skills.
What happens after the GHA?
Once completed, our physician-led, multidisciplinary team will provide you with a comprehensive health analysis document that summarizes the findings from the GHA.
From there, this team will collaborate with you in the development of a Customized Treatment Plan to address the needs identified by the GHA and health goals to strive toward. Treatment plans utilize a variety of services available throughout Memorial Health System.
