Oklahoma Heart Hospital is partnering with HealthFair (http://www.healthfair.com), the nation’s leading provider of mobile health screening services, to make screenings for heart attack, stroke and aneurysm as easy as getting on a bus.
Oklahoma has one of the highest death rates from heart attack and ranks in the top ten in the nation in most risk factors for heart disease. Starting in September, Oklahoma Heart Hospital is teaming up with HealthFair, to offer affordable and accessible testing that includes electrocardiogram (EKG), carotid artery ultrasound, abdominal aortic aneurysm ultrasound, and three other ultrasound tests.
“Oklahoma Heart Hospital’s partnership with HealthFair will provide a new way to focus on heart disease prevention, detection and treatment and at the same time increase our commitment to the people of rural Oklahoma,” said Dr John Harvey, CEO/President of Oklahoma Heart Hospital. “These screenings will be available in both urban and rural areas to provide an excellent opportunity for Oklahoma Heart Hospital to educate our neighbors on the importance of preventive healthcare while making life-saving screenings more accessible across our communities.”
Mobile health screenings give hospitals a cost-effective and efficient way to screen patients for life-threatening conditions. The most popular six-test prevention package is just $179 and all six tests take less than one hour to complete. In addition, those interested can also get a five-year disease risk assessment and lipid panel. This is a personalized report which calculates your five-year risk for major diseases, including stroke, diabetes, heart disease and lung cancer and provides a road map of how you can reduce your risk in each category. These results are provided at the time of the testing.
“The collaboration between HealthFair and Oklahoma Heart Hospital is a win-win,” said James Ekbatani, CEO and chairman of HealthFair. “We are proud to partner with a well-respected name in cardiac Cardiovascular medicine like Oklahoma Heart Hospital to give even more people the peace of mind that comes from preventive healthcare.”
