Life Line Screening Brings Necessary Personal Health Data to Light

For 35 years, Life Line Screening CMO Dr. Andrew Manganaro was in private practice for cardiac, thoracic, and vascular surgery. Over those years, he saw many cases where asymptomatic diseases had lingered for months or even years before the crisis moment hit, urgently bringing the patients through his doors. When he retired, he joined Life Link Screening to continue work, identifying those patients early enough to catch the diseases before they become life threatening.

 

In recent interviews, Dr. Andrew Manganaro discussed the directions and challenges that he foresees for the company as it continues to grow and develop within the health screening practice. The entire team at Life Line Screening works to screen, identify, and connect treatment for vascular diseases. When screening patients they will oftentimes use the limited electrocardiographs to detect atrial fibrillation, ultrasounds, and finger prick blood screenings to detect many other diseases such as cardiovascular and liver conditions. Many times, the screenings do not show any major conditions, but when they do, early detection can be crucial in treatment.

Blood tests are typically available even before you walk out the door, and other screening results will normally be mailed within fifteen days. At that time, Life Line Screening recommends taking them to the doctor for a full analysis and to see if anything needs to be acted upon.

Much of their information on diseases is also used by the academic and scientific communities to better treat and identify diseases early on. According to Dr. Andrew Manganaro, there have been over 8 million people screened by Life Line Screening based on the recommendation of their doctor or physician, and their database is referenced by many peer-reviewed journals.

As CMO, Dr. Andrew Manganaro’s role is to ensure that the panel of physicians are reviewing the screenings correctly, and other aspects of quality control. He also works closely with new and emerging technologies that the screening industry uses to detect disease.

Life Line Screening began in 1996. It has provided millions of people with the information they need to gain peace of mind or treatment for various asymptomatic conditions.

Life Line Screening- Prevention is Better than Cure

Life Line Screening is a private owned community focused company. It specializes in prevention and wellness, providing direct-to-consumer preventive community-based health screenings. The company’s based in Austin, Texas and operates across the USA. Life Line Screening is firmly committed to offering reliable and affordable preventive screenings by imparting health knowledge that will help people to lead wholesome and healthier lives.

Life Line Screening firmly believes that partnering with doctors is a successful way of significantly improving the quality of life by detecting health problems early. The employees of the company are well trained and licensed healthcare providers to offer quality services during screening events. These screenings take place in neighborhoods all over the USA, in corporations, community centers, senior centers, and places of worship.

Their screening services are not only affordable but also easy, painless, and convenient. Life Line Screening has three types of preventative screening; Ultrasound screening, Finger-stick blood screenings, and Limited electrocardiograph. Ultrasound/Sonography is a refined technique in which sound waves are used to image body structure. High-frequency sound waves are transmitted to a particular point in the body. The echoes that return are then recorded. Finger-stick blood screenings point out major risk factors linked to diabetes and heart disease. This is a simple procedure that involves taking a few blood droplets by pricking the soft pad of the finger. Tests are done by state of the art technology, and results are provided within ten minutes. Limited electrocardiograph detects the irregular heartbeat (atrial fibrillation). The screening is quick and non-invasive and doesn’t need prior preparation.

Apart from screenings, Life Line Screening offers supplementary resources. An example is the Life Line Screening Health E-Newsletter. It helps one to center their focal point on individual wellness. This could involve making lifestyle choices that will help better manage a chronic disease or help avoid certain diseases by leading a lifestyle that will help prevent them.

The Incredible Technologies And Work Of The Cancer Treatment Centers Of America

The Cancer Treatment Centers of America have entered into a collaboration with Allscripts and NantHealth. They have implemented a solution that will improve the information available regarding cancer treatments. This involves the integration of the Clinical Pathways program which contains the input of oncologists all over the nation.

According to Wikipedia, the system will show all of the appropriate treatments that are available. Any guesswork will be almost completely eliminated. Everything is customized with the CTCA standards of care so patients can choose from safe and efficient options. The Clinical Pathways system was designed to focus on the patients and has the latest treatments, complimentary therapies and a curated protocol list pertaining to diseases specific to the patients.

The options are available by tapping the screen and combines supportive therapies with clinical based evidence. The system is designed to meet the individual needs of each patient and improve the quality of their lives while they are receiving treatments for cancer. The guidelines also include adverse drug reactions and response rates.

Patients and the staff now have the ability to discuss the different treatment regimens available and what the best treatment would be for the patients particular situation. The data supporting the options is also easily available. Physicians now have access to a medical library containing more than 2,700 pieces of evidence based treatments and appropriate therapies. All cancers, modalities and subtypes are covered in the system.

The blog, https://www.myctca.com/ for Cancer Treatment Centers Of America are based out of Boca Raton, Florida but operate on a national basis. They are a network of five profit based hospitals who serve patients with cancer all over the United States. They use conventional approaches including chemotherapy, immunotherapy, surgery and radiation. They also offer therapies to help patients with pain, fatigue, malnutrition, anxiety, depression and lymphedema.

Richard Stephenson founded CTCA in honor of his mother after she passed away from cancer. He was dissatisfied with available treatment options so he opened the first CTCA location in 1988. The hospital was in Zion, Illinois and the other four locations opened between 2005 and 2012.
