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.
