Building an Effective Preventive Care Strategy
Perhaps the best strategy for staying healthy is a proactive plan of preventive care and screenings. The difference in success rates between the early and late detection of many diseases is significant. Five year survival rates for colorectal cancer plunge from 90% with early detection to just 8% when discovered in the advanced stage. Lung cancer diagnosed in the early stages translates to an 80% survival rate. Discovered in the advanced stages, the death rate is 80%.
PinnacleCare focuses on prevention because proactive steps to improve health are the key to lifelong wellness. From a business perspective, healthy executives are more productive and able to focus on the work at hand.
PinnacleCare’s preventive services help you access:
- Biophysical250: This leading-edge preventive screening uses a sample of blood to look at hundreds of disease biomarkers to indicate the risk of developing those serious conditions even before symptoms appear. Members receive a private, comprehensive analysis of their results that is reviewed by our on-staff medical team.
- Wellness consultations and coaching: PinnacleCare health advisors work with each member and their family to create and manage a personal wellness plan designed to help them achieve optimum health. If desired, we also facilitate putting that plan into action and offer a consultation with a nutrition, sleep, sports medicine, physical therapy, or lifestyle/wellness coach.
- Integrative medicine: To expand their options, PinnacleCare members can obtain recommendations for alternative therapies including chiropractic care, yoga, acupuncture, and naturopathic medicine and provide members with an objective assessment of what these therapies offer.
