In a survey conducted by the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation, it was found that 53% of large firms and 20% of small firms offering health benefits provided employees the opportunity to complete biometric screening. Many employers understand the valuable snapshot that biometric numbers can provide into an individual’s health. 

Although there’s a solid understanding of the health value, there has been some debate over what method of sampling works best. There are two options, venipuncture and finger prick. Both have benefits and drawbacks depending on what you feel is best for your program.
