DALLAS, Jan. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Citing aging and the declining health status of the 78 million Baby Boomers in conjunction with skyrocketing health costs in the United States, U.S. Preventive Medicine, Inc. is predicting robust growth for the company in the years ahead.
"According to a recent Forrester Research report, two-thirds of employers currently or plan to include wellness and disease management programs in their health benefit offerings. We are already seeing growth in demand for our clinically-based care management programs, which are bundled into three tiers of The Prevention Plan(TM)," said Christopher Fey, U.S. Preventive Medicine(R) Chairman and CEO. "These same companies are looking for a one stop prevention solution, which U.S. Preventive Medicine brings to the table."
"As the emerging leader in prevention, we are focused on organizing the fragmentation that exists across the continuum of prevention, early detection and chronic condition management to realize improved health outcomes while reducing health care costs," said Fey. "We see an almost unlimited opportunity ahead, in spite of the fact that the U.S. economy appears to be slowing going into 2008. We are on an unprecedented growth trajectory and do not see any slowing in our business as a result."
During the past 12 months, U.S. Preventive Medicine has evolved from a development stage company into an integrated, preventive health care company providing comprehensive health care services in seven states for individuals with chronic conditions such as asthma, diabetes, Chronic Heart Failure, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, high risk OB/GYN, mental illness and many other complex conditions. The company also is launching The Prevention Plan(TM), a ground breaking new preventive health benefit, as well as expanding its system of Centers for Preventive Medicine. The Company recently announced its expansion into the United Kingdom.
