Starting in May 2012, The Dr. Oz Show teamed up with Practice Fusion and Alere to bring 15-Minute Physicals to six cities in America. Each event screened for numbers that provide a good starting point for a conversation about a person's overall health, after which the registrant was able to speak with a health professional about their personal next steps to wellness. In addition to the measurements taken at the event, data was collected through the registration process.
