Members of Congress, their staff and State and Federal government officials will see the impact of these high-tech tools in the lives of their constituents.

 

Audience members will be able to ask questions, review sample test reports, and understand their benefits for population health management, as the country faces the challenges of deficit reduction, escalating health care costs and rising rates of chronic disease."Health Diagnostic Laboratory looks forward to our participation in the Population Health Innovations Showcase and to educating leaders in government about life saving technologies that provide positive outcomes on the health care system," said Anna McKean, Executive VP of Strategic Initiatives at HDL, Inc.

"Currently, the incidence of chronic disease continues to accelerate despite widespread laboratory testing. Health Diagnostic Laboratory was founded on the premise that many widely used laboratory tests do not adequately identify the risk for specific chronic diseases, and therefore limit the opportunity for prevention," said Mckean.

The Centers for Disease Control reports that 75% of overall medical costs are driven by preventable chronic conditions like cardiovascular disease (CVD) and diabetes. Health risk, however, are not identified until after disease reaches a chronic state. Health Diagnostic Laboratory, Inc. will attend the inaugural Population Health Innovations Showcase with a mission to help change the paradigm and to identify disease risk earlier so that the conditions can be treated and even reversed. 

HDL, Inc., a fully CAP/CLIA accredited clinical laboratory, is surpassing the traditional lipid blood test by offering an innovative biomarker panel of laboratory blood tests. By testing for inflammation, oxidative and myocardial stress, metabolic function, along with lipoprotein particles and pharmacogenetic markers, medical professionals can tailor the most effective treatment based on an expanded, comprehensive patient profile.  The result -- earlier detection of risk factors, more advanced evidence-based treatments, and fewer patients progressing to overt cardiovascular disease and diabetes. 

The HDL, Inc. approach emphasizes prevention of disease by utilizing evidence-based practice guidelines and patient empowerment strategies.  Evidence-based and actionable biomarkers in blood testing are available and affordable to practicing clinicians, patients, as well as employer groups. These innovative tests coupled with patient-engagement strategies hold enormous promise for reversing the rising global trends in cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
This approach to healthcare results in improved clinical knowledge and improved quality in patient care, which ultimately creates significant reduction in healthcare costs.
