HealthCaters offers health checks within the framework of company health management. Based on representative biomarkers and information on family history and lifestyle habits, the health status and associated risk factors of a participant are anonymously compared with generally accessible national and international health data. Such a comparative survey makes no claim to completeness and does not preclude health data that were not collected from deviating from the norm. This comparative survey is not intended to identify or rule out existing or impending diseases and is not a substitute for routine or necessary medical visits. Making reliable diagnoses, treating conditions of all types, and using medication-based therapy require consultation with independent, medical professionals. For specific questions about treatment and care of ailments, participants must consult their physician or health care professional. The goal of the HealthCaters offering is to raise participants' awareness of health issues and to provide an incentive to take a more active approach to their own health.
