OUR GOAL IS TO INSPIRE INDIVIDUALS TO TAKE CHARGE OF THEIR HEALTH. We have over twenty years of experience in working with individuals to improve their health outlook. Our epidemiologists have developed the HealthLink Wellness software that is key in providing meaningful feedback so individuals can, with their physician, make progress in improving their health status. The HealthLink Wellness software was originally developed to promote the health for our nation’s seniors. It was developed by a CDC funded “Healthy Aging Program”. Its analytical outcome measures are just as valid for all adults. It has since been used in other community and employer based organizations in conducting health fairs that included a broad range of participant ages. With a broader age distribution, the potential of reaching younger adults further enhances the ability for prevention and early detection, the gold standard for maintaining population wellness. One outcome measure used since the inception of the program is an estimate of the ten year probability of coronary heart disease originally developed by the Framingham Heart Study. Much of the now common knowledge concerning heart disease, such as the effects of diet, exercise, and common medications such as aspirin, is based on this longitudinal study. Since the Framingham study based index has the endorsement of both the American College of Cardiology and American Heart Association, its inclusion in the HealthLink Wellness software has made it readily accepted by our physician partners. The CDC developed wellness program to determine the feasibility of coordinating community efforts with those of the primary care physician, creates an environment where patient, community, and medical office work as a team.
