The continued escalation of health care costs, driven by chronic disease, has increased attention on the value of preventive health. 75% of all healthcare costs are associated with chronic disease. The Center for Disease Control & Prevention estimates that 80% of heart attacks, strokes & type-2 diabetes could be prevented in some form by simple lifestyle changes.
A check-up is the intended goal of screenings; to review and discuss personal health results in a private face-to-face consultation with a Medical Doctor. This is a vital initiation into personal prevention as the doctor is the recognized authority in healthcare. Our program utilizes this valuable check-up opportunity to it's fullest potential of efficiency and effectiveness.

Corporate wellness efforts such as health screens, risk assessments and health fairs have had some success in identifying health risks but have fallen short in their ability to engage at-risk participants into necessary actions. The inherent goal of corporate wellness efforts has been to identify employees at-risk and convince them to go see a physician.
PathFinder Health provides a new approach by connecting employees with their data and a doctor for a meaningful and personalized on-site engagement, which represents the gateway to appropriate and cost effective care. This is our difference which is pivotal in getting actual results from employees being engaged in prevention.
75% of all healthcare costs are associated with chronic disease, the majority of which are preventable. Unfortunately less than 20% of American adults actually follow-up their biometric screening with going to get their annual check-up. The national data continues to apply across the board for employers and employees as a barometer of health.
