The simple fact is that corporate meetings and travel cost money, representing the 3rd largest expense on corporate P&Ls, and at best generating an ambiguous return on investment
Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) June 4, 2008
CardioReady a leading provider of independent monitoring and essential lifesaving programs today announced CardioReady by Event, the first product of its kind that would allow corporations and meeting planners to provide on-site medical representation devoted to the health and safety of their meeting attendees in the event of a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) incident or other health related issues.
"In order to assist Fortune 500 companies in ensuring the health and well-being of their employees, customers and guests at corporate meetings, CardioReady has introduced its new CardioReady by Event service which provides a paramedic as well as AED and other emergency medical equipment to respond to medical emergencies including Sudden Cardiac Arrest," said Chris Adderton, President and CEO of CardioReady. "Going Green by using meeting facilities including hotels which are Green is very important to preserve our natural resources, but assuring that a company's most import resource, its people, are protected in case of a medical emergency should be one of any company's highest priorities."
CardioReady's partner StarCite, Inc., which has an extensive client base of Fortune 500 companies in the corporate meeting market, is promoting the use of CardioReady programs with its clientele. Most Fortune 500 companies today feel an obligation to provide a Standard of Care when their employees travel comparable to what they provide at their own facilities. CardioReady by Event provides StarCite's clientele with opportunity to assure that their meetings are covered by onsite medical emergency medical care and equipment including AEDs consistent with "best practices" and corporate policy.
"The simple fact is that corporate meetings and travel cost money, representing the 3rd largest expense on corporate P&Ls, and at best generating an ambiguous return on investment," confirms Dr. Jonathan Spero, President and CEO of InHouse Physicians. "By ensuring onsite medical support and the necessary lifesaving equipment are on-hand at meetings and events, as provided by CardioReady by Event a company mitigates lost opportunity costs from attendee absenteeism - from both the sick or injured and those that bear the responsibility of assisting them. Couple that with the real cost of an ER visit and an average of six valuable hours wasted in a hospital waiting room, and it's not hard to understand why these services are viewed as productivity and bottom-line enhancers."
In addition, the employee satisfaction generated from this outward show of corporate goodwill demonstrates that a company truly understands its duty of care."
