We should talk to every patient about their weight, to help them in the long-term fight against obesity, or to reduce potential health risks before they arise. But bringing the subject up tactfully takes time, something that is almost always lacking in everyday medicine.
seca directprint is the ideal tool for qualified and efficient weight-related patient consultation. It doesn’t just tell you your height, weight and BMI in seconds, it also gathers together your measurements with lots of sound information and tips in one printout. That means it provides the ideal ice-breaker for your overweight patients – at the press of a button – because it draws attention to the subject of obesity without direct confrontation, and gently introduces the associated medical consultion.
This removes inhibitions, makes people more willing to talk, and motivates your patients in the long term to tackle the subject more rigorously and do something about it. This in turn can generate economic benefits for your practice, since it means you can offer additional services.
