The Second Step of Process

The Healthy Business Prevention Program follows a 3 step process as we assess patients to determine their risk for heart disease or stroke.  The program is designed to:

For those patients who show onset of atherosclerosis, we move on to step 2, where we attempt to determine the causes of arterial disease.  We recognize that atherosclerosis can have many root causes, and by identifying the actual issues that might cause disease for each individual (rather than take a one size fits all approach), we are able to better treat the patient and prevent the onset of further disease. 

 

In this step, we perform several advanced lab tests, all based on blood draws, including reviewing the lipid panel, Apolipoprotein B, Lipoprotein(a), HbA1c (to detect diabetes and prediabetes), LpPLA2 ( to detect inflammation) and Vitamin D levels.  From these tests, we offer a consultation and make specific and individual recommendations.

 

We only administer follow up tests to those employees who have been identified as having a higher risk for heart attack or stroke.

 

Our goal is to save your human capital and preserve a healthy bottom line.

The First Step of The Process

The Healthy Business Prevention Program follows a 3 step process as we assess patients to determine their risk for heart disease or stroke.  The program is designed to:

  • Detect arterial disease
  • Identify causes of disease
  • Manage and monitor patient's outcome

Our first step is to detect arterial disease, also known as atherosclerosis.  We use the Carotid IMT, a quick non-invasive test which can be performed in our office or in yours.  The CIMT detects thickening of the arterial wall, a sign of atherosclerosis, which can typically be seen through imaging well before symptoms present themselves.

For a low fixed cost, companies can have us screen their employees to prevent issues before they arise! Companies who take advantage of the Healthy Business Prevention Program benefit from improved productivity and cost-savings for health insurance plans.

From Good Idea to Action

Everybody has something they find frustrating.  For some it is traffic, for others it might be a service that doesn’t quite meet their needs or expectations. At the top of my list is to see people who have access to things that would make their lives longer and better, but they either ignore those options or choose alternatives that are less effective or even harmful.
