DALLAS, Oct. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- When the nation's top innovators come together this week at the Health 2.0 User-Generated Healthcare conference to showcase web technologies transforming the health care industry, The Prevention Plan(TM) (http://www.ThePreventionPlan.com), a groundbreaking health improvement program from U.S. Preventive Medicine(R), will be on the stage.
U.S. Preventive Medicine(R) President Fred Goldstein was selected to present The Prevention Plan(TM) at this year's Health 2.0 conference in San Francisco, which provides a high visibility platform for companies to share new Internet technologies and tools that support and sustain better health for consumers.
The Prevention Plan(TM) is a health improvement program developed by U.S. Preventive Medicine(R) to discover and personally address each member's top health risks. It is available directly to consumers online and through employers, making it the first ever benefit for prevention.
Members receive an assessment of their health status through comprehensive blood work, biometrics, health history and a physician review. Interventions to tackle those immediate and future health risks begin with a confidential website where the member receives a customized program, alerts about needed screenings and exams, a listing of employer prevention benefits, tutorial programs, Personal Health Records and other tools.
RN advocates work closely with the member to establish, track and meet practical health goals as well as help navigate through the confusing health care maze. Incentives and contests also are incorporated for further motivation. The website becomes the member's central depository of medical information year after year, even if insurance or employers change. Employers receive detailed management reports with aggregate data so they know their own risks, how to specifically address those risks and the results of The Prevention Plan(TM).
"We have some highly sophisticated clients who are providing this to their employees and they tell us there is nothing like this in the marketplace," said Goldstein. "Other programs have some of these components, but we are the only one to put all the pieces together in one place and then deliver it in a highly secure environment."
The Health 2.0 conference is being held October 22 and 23 in San Francisco.
