We Get Results That Achieve Your Goals For Growth

The HealthAware Program benefits people struggling with obesity and arthritis. By focusing on those with mobility issues and co-morbidity risks, we target only those at risk who are likely to be admitted within twelve months.

HealthAware ’s innovative suite of early detection systems gets proven results by meeting or exceeding your expectations for growth.

How? By inspiring at-risk, pre-first episodic patients to visit your web site and use your HealthAware online risk assessment program. This leads directly to more traffic through your hospital, which means more procedures and greater patient revenue. We accomplish this in five easy steps.

STEP 1 We help you launch the HealthAware Orthopedic diagnostic system on your hospital web site.

STEP 2 You promote this exclusive service to the community using high-end marketing materials that are proven to inspire and motivate potential patients to take action.

STEP 3 Patients visit your web site and take the Risk Assessment evaluation. If it is determined the patient should seek treatment, they are offered a free consultation with a hospital clinician.

STEP 5 The patient meets with a clinician. If the consultation suggests a need for further treatment, your clinician offers to forward the risk assessment results to the patient’s PCP. Your clinician may also provide a list of questions the patient can ask his PCP. If the patient does not have a PCP, your clinician offers a referral to one of your hospital’s staff physicians.

Five easy steps. It’s that simple. And it increases patient traffic through your hospital.


Weight loss procedures have exploded over the last ten years.  Between 1998 and 2004, bariatric surgeries increased almost ten fold.  Currently there are about 12 million Americans eligible for a bariatric procedure (having a body mass index (BMI) greater than 40).  Additionally, young adults and teens are increasingly opting for the procedure as obesity rates continue to rise at epidemic proportions.

Risk Factors
Our BariatricAware module includes these risk factors:

• Obesity
• Diabetes
• Age (although young adults and teens are opting for the procedures)
• High blood pressure
• Risk of blood clotting


Joint pain is among the most prevalent chronic conditions.   Nearly 19 million U.S. adults reported activity limitations because of arthritis each year during 2003–2005.  Every year, arthritis results in 750,000 hospitalizations and 36 million outpatient visits.  Arthritis is not just an old person’s disease. Nearly two-thirds of people with arthritis are younger than 65.
