We will continue to push for a shift in health care from the treatment of illness to the proactive preservation of health, ultimately shrinking health care costs for all.
Jacksonville, FL / Dallas, TX (PRWEB) July 02, 2012
U.S. Preventive Medicine® believes the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act will add more focus on prevention, improving health and overall well-being. Additionally, millions of individuals will be added to the Medicaid rolls which will provide for more opportunities in this Federal/State program as USPM already has Medicaid contracts in Arkansas and North Dakota. The development of Accountable Care Organizations, State Health Exchanges and the Patient Centered Medical Home all provide added focus on the need for expanded efforts for primary, secondary and tertiary prevention, which is the focus of U.S. Preventive Medicine.
Through the development of products like The Prevention Plan™, a predictive, personalized health benefit, and Macaw™, a mobile health and fitness app, U.S. Preventive Medicine is causing a convergence of technology with the clinical discipline of preventive medicine. The company is leveraging these tools to deliver better health, lower medical costs and higher productivity to Americans.
“It will take some time to fully realize the implications the Supreme Court’s decision has on our business and our clients, but I do believe that any discussion about prevention, health improvement and lower costs plays to our favor,” said Christopher Fey, Chairman & CEO of U.S. Preventive Medicine. “Regardless of the impact of this decision, the focus of U.S. Preventive Medicine remains the same. We will continue to push for a shift in health care from the treatment of illness to the proactive preservation of health, ultimately shrinking health care costs for all.”
