PTS Diagnostics Introduces Secure Cloud-Based Solution Enhancing Corporate Wellness Programs and Improving Health Screeners’ Productivity

PTS Connect™ Wellness Solution is an online tool that digitizes data from screening events and promotes employee engagement in corporate wellness programs

Indianapolis, March 10, 2015 – PTS Diagnostics, the U.S.-based manufacturer of both the CardioChek® brand and the A1CNow® family of point-of-care diagnostic products, announces the launch of the PTS Connect™ Wellness Solution. This secure cloud-based solution will empower health screening companies to screen more individuals faster and corporate wellness programs to improve outcomes by encouraging participants to monitor and track activity and progress online. In addition, it enables population health management by targeting wellness communication and aggregating data for at-risk individuals.

In short, the PTS Connect Wellness Solution provides an opportunity to improve productivity, participant engagement and data analysis among organizations that manage wellness screenings and wellness programs.

“The PTS Connect Wellness Solution is the complete Population Health Management tool. As a software solution for screening and wellness programs, the new online tool meets the needs of customers with a variety of goals,” said Robert Huffstodt, President and CEO of PTS Diagnostics. “Some customers may simply want to automate the acquisition of biometric results, provide immediate screening reports to participants
and aggregate data. Others may want to grant online access to participants after the screening event, providing online education and enabling targeted wellness messaging. This flexible solution allows customers to grow their wellness platform over time to meet changing needs.”

For health screeners, the software is capable of automated upload of biometric information from a CardioChek lipid and glucose analyzer, and from a weight scale, blood pressure monitor and pedometer. The biometric data is stored securely and can be synced instantaneously with a participant’s online wellness account.

For corporate wellness programs, PTS Connect Wellness Solution offers a turnkey range of online tools and resources supporting healthy lifestyle change. PTS Connect offers a personal health assessment that produces wellness education based on individual needs. In addition, users can track and monitor physical activity over time. Educational offerings include quizzes, calculators, self-assessments and decision guides.

“Our new platform was designed for screeners and corporate wellness programs,” said Huffstodt. “We have taken the entire health management continuum and created an online software solution to make screening and running a corporate wellness program easy. We are excited to begin offering these solutions via our global distribution network.”

In addition to PTS Connect Wellness Solution, PTS Diagnostics’ portfolio includes the following systems:
