You're likely weighing your patients at the start of every visit, but how are you measuring their body fat? Even though an assessment of adult body mass index (BMI) is a MACRA measure, there are additional methods to accurately analyze your patients' body fat.
A full body composition report—including BMI, body fat and body water percentages, and basal metabolic rate (BMR)—delivers a more complete picture of your patients' health. Obesity raises the risk for many health conditions, including coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, metabolic syndrome, and diabetes.
The American Heart Association recommends your obese patients participate in a medically supervised weight loss program two or three times a month for at least six months.
Henry Schein offers the tools that deliver an accurate body composition report, including an assessment of your patient's body mass index (BMI).
