BASKING RIDGE, N.J., Sept. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Hooper Holmes, Inc. (Amex: HH) today announced that its Health & Wellness Division will exhibit for the first time at the 2007 Disease Management Leadership Forum & Integrated Care Summit from September 16th-19th. The conference is sponsored by the Disease Management Association of America and the National Association of Manufacturers and is being held at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas.
Hooper Holmes Health and Wellness service is a "one-stop shop" for wellness and disease management companies, providing scheduling support, fulfillment of supplies, blood collection kits, medical screenings, lab testing, and data transmission. As a result, these companies can now reach more participants, gather more participant data earlier in the disease management process, better target interventional health support services and more easily reach participants on their terms, at work or at home.
"Our capabilities uniquely match the needs of wellness and disease management companies, and this business sector is important to the overall growth of our company," said Chris Behling, President of the company's Health & Wellness Division. "We will use our presence at the Leadership Forum to educate the industry about our abilities to collect biometric data and deliver end-to-end management of wellness screenings."
Since creation of the Health & Wellness Division in January 2007, Hooper Holmes has worked in collaboration with several wellness companies on a series of successful pilot programs. In July 2007 the company announced its 25,000th employee screening for health and wellness companies, which marked a major milestone in bringing national coverage and consistency to the screening of employee groups and individuals in a market that is growing at 30% year over year.
