Reperio health screening: How it works

December 8, 2022

As an employer, we know the health and wellbeing of your employees matters to you. Healthy employees are happier and more productive, but we also know that a busy workforce tends to put preventive health on the backburner. During the pandemic, an estimated 41% of US adults either delayed or avoided medical care – including urgent or emergency care and routine care. But this was also true before the pandemic. In 2018, a poll of 2,000 Americans showed that 54% of adults delayed care – especially dental, eye care and annual exams. 

Figuring out basic health metrics like cholesterol, blood pressure, and glucose levels should be easy. But between the hassle of scheduling an appointment, traveling to the doctors’ office, and waiting for test results to come back from the lab, finding the time and energy for preventive health screenings quickly becomes a pain.

That’s why we created our at-home screening kit. 

Reperio’s kit is designed to give your employees on the spot insights into their health within 30 minutes. Our comprehensive risk assessment measures key indicators of chronic disease, including hypertension and prediabetes, and helps users understand health data like blood pressure, BMI, total cholesterol and more. 

Plus, instead of waiting several weeks to get results back from a clinic or lab, your employees see their results right after completing the screening. They also get access to a detailed report that clearly explains their results–no need to Google what complex lab results mean or wait for a doctor to call. 

Here’s how it works:

Step 1: Delivery 

Once the Reperio kit has been ordered, an employee will receive a text message and email with tracking information so they know when it’s on the way. 

At this point, we recommend that employees set aside 30 to 45 minutes on their calendar. While most users complete the test in 30 minutes, allowing this extra time will ensure there is no need to rush or stress. 

Step 2: The Unboxing

Here’s what’s included in the health screening kit:

 

There is also a round, shiny blue button at the center of the box. This activates the Bluetooth function, so test results can be transmitted directly to the Reperio app. 

Step 3: Prepping your workstation

After unboxing the Reperio screening kit, employees are ready to start their screening: 

1. Place all testing equipment on the white cardboard mat. This is the workstation for the duration of the testing period.  

2. Make sure to download the Reperio app onto an Apple or Android phone. The app will play step by step guides and video tutorials throughout the screening process. 

3. Push the button in the center of the box. This activates the Bluetooth function, so test results can be transmitted directly to the Reperio app.  

Step 4: Measuring blood pressure, RFM, and BMI

The Reperio app provides video walk-throughs for each of the screening steps, including: 

This entire process should take between five and ten minutes. 

Use the Reperio tape measure to collect measures for Relative Fat Mass.

The fully automatic, Bluetooth-connected blood pressure cuff guides users through this section of the screening.
Use the included scale to measure weight, which, along with height, is used to calculate your BMI.

Step 5: Lipid Panel & Glucose 

Next up is the blood testing portion of the screening. Measure total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, glucose and triglycerides with a simple finger prick. 

Each Reperio screening kit contains everything the user needs to complete the lipid panel and glucose test. 

The blood collection is easy and (mostly) pain-free. Because we use small lancets, many people don’t report any pain or discomfort related to the finger prick. 

The app’s video walk-through demonstrates exactly what to do and how to collect a sufficient sample.

The entire process should take between 5 and 15 minutes.

The Reperio app guides you through the blood screening with step-by-step video instructions.

Step 6: Getting Instant Results

Within a few seconds, employees will see their personal data for seven metrics, paired with a visual graphic and easy to understand explanation of their screening results–including what the results mean in the broader context of their overall health. 

Step 7: Returning the Kit

Just follow the video walk-through on the app to re-box all of the measurement tools (digital scale, blood pressure cuff, glucometer, etc.), and attach the return label included in the box. Through the Reperio app, employees can schedule a free UPS pickup or choose to drop it off at the nearest UPS retail location.
