Today’s health technology is better than ever, and there are more and more tools and platforms to help you monitor, assess and improve your overall health. Lisa Larkin, MD, and Associates is pleased to announce our partnership with HealthSnap Solutions, an online platform that we’re offering to our patients as an additional tool in your healthcare toolbox.
The HealthSnap Solutions’ platform is an online tool that takes into account a patient’s lifestyle in addition to other factors, such as family history, to develop an overall assessment and health plan for preventing chronic illnesses. The process is simple:
- First, you’ll receive an email directly from HealthSnap Solutions, inviting you to start the process by clicking on a link in the email to complete an online questionnaire. The tool covers information such as your level and frequency of exercise and asks about the types of foods you eat on a regular basis.
- Once you complete the questionnaire, you’re asked to contact our office to schedule a brief appointment for measuring various biometrics, such as your blood pressure, and other indicators. This appointment is brief – less than 15 minutes—and costs $25. At the end, you’ll be provided with a printed report summarizing your results, including specific and concrete, medically based recommendations for improving areas of your health that might need specific attention.
- Your data remains secure in the HIPAA-compliant portal, and is there for you to access as needed. You’ll also want to repeat the process in three- to six-months (depending on what you and your provider agree upon) to see if changes you’ve made have had an impact on your health data.
The HealthSnap Solutions tool helps us provide a truly comprehensive wellness assessment that offers evidence-based, individualized recommendations to improve your likelihood of preventing chronic diseases. Combined with our in-house nutrition services, weight-loss classes and other wellness services, the tool can have a significant impact on improving your overall health.
