Life Line Screening Joins Center for Health Transformation

Community-based preventive health screening provider Life Line Screening has become a member of The Center for Health Transformation (CHT) to share in its commitment to creating an intelligent health system for the 21st century.

Washington, DC (PRWEB) February 24, 2010 -- The Center for Health Transformation (CHT) announced today that Life Line Screening has joined its membership.

Life Line Screening is a leading provider of community-based, preventive health screenings. By partnering with local institutions such as town halls, libraries and community centers, who host the events, Life Line Screening brings an array of preventive screenings and services directly into local communities, making them convenient and affordable.

Core services focus on the identification of stroke and cardiovascular disease risk factors. Cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of men and women in the United States, and stroke, by itself, is number three. Some 800,000 people a year have a stroke. Yet, with appropriate care and lifestyle management, 80 percent of strokes can be prevented.

Life Line Screening will collaborate with CHT on bringing the concept of preventive care to the forefront. Both organizations share the belief that preventive care and consumer empowerment over healthcare decisions will lead to healthier communities and better outcomes for individuals.

“We are very pleased to be a part of the Center for Health Transformation and its distinguished membership,” says Life Line Screening CEO Colin Scully. “Our mission is to make people aware of the existence of an undiagnosed health problem and encourage them to seek follow-up care with a doctor. This patient-focused, customer-first approach is going to be a priority as we develop sustainable health care strategies for the future.”

“Life Line Screening is a true leader in consumer-driven health care,” says CHT Founder and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich. “By providing valuable, cost-effective services, Life Line Screening empowers individuals to take control of their own health and helps individuals focus on preventive health strategies as they age.”

About the Center for Health Transformation (CHT)
The Center for Health Transformation is a high-impact collaboration of private and public sector leaders committed to creating a 21st Century intelligent Health System that saves lives and saves money for all Americans. Unlike other alliances, CHT unites stakeholders across the spectrum (providers, employers, vendors, trade associations, disease groups, think tanks) and government leaders at both the state and federal level to drive transformation according to a shared vision and key principles.
