Burtonsville, MD (PRWEB) June 6, 2008
Lifeclinic International, Inc., the world's leading manufacturer and distributor of automated blood pressure monitors and health testing stations, is an official corporate sponsor and attendee of the America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) Institute 2008 Conference. The Conference will be held at the Moscone Center West, San Francisco, California, June 18-20, 2008. Lifeclinic will be located at booth #236.
AHIP is a national trade association representing nearly 1,300 member companies providing health benefits to more than 200 million Americans. "We're looking forward to participating in AHIP's Institute 2008 Conference because its membership base is the targeted sector in which Lifeclinic's technology and product line can make a significant impact," explains Lifeclinic Marketing Director, Whitsun Lyttle. Lyttle adds, "People see our blood pressure monitors located in their neighborhood pharmacy; they are used 1,000,000 times a day. However, we also provide best in class programs and products for wellness initiatives in the corporate workplace where more than 5,000 of our monitors and health stations are located. For example, Washington Mutual installed 18 of our health stations at administrative offices and in the first month identified more than 200 employees who were both obese and had Stage 2 hypertension; they were referred to WaMu's DM company for coaching. And just a few weeks ago, when the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort & Spa was named the best place to work in Hawaii by Hawaii Business magazine, employees cited the availability of a Lifeclinic health station as a prime reason."
Featured at the Lifeclinic booth will be the LC500 -- a corporate wellness program-friendly health station that offers automated blood pressure, weight, body fat, BMI and blood oxygen tests, along with glucose meter upload capability. Additional peripheral input ports include IR (infrared) and USB for interfacing with various personal health devices including pedometers. Employees can easily navigate through the LC500's interface of test options and health information via a 10.4" color LCD touch screen.
The LC500 is Internet-ready for secure, HIPAA-compliant, open source integration into most network environments and can easily interface with existing wellness applications so that all data gathered by it can be saved. The LC500, along with Lifeclinic's Web- based GroupStat management system, can collect, track and manage real-time biometric data, for individuals or in the aggregate, to improve the overall outcome of corporate health programs. Employees can also manage their own data from any Web browser via Lifeclinic.com or the employer's own Web site or health portal. Optional features include both a magnetic stripe and barcode reader for employee identification badges and cards.
