Wellness Focus Cited as Reason for Drop in Heart Attacks

MedBen WellLiving promotes positive lifestyle changes… the very sort of changes that has led to a marked reduction in the number of older Americans dying from heart attacks.

According to HealthDay News, a Yale University study of Medicare patients revealed that hospitalizations for heart attacks dropped 38% between 1995 and 2014. Furthermore, deaths within 30 days of a heart attack reached an all-time low of 12% – a decrease of more than one-third.

"This is really amazing progress," said lead researcher Dr. Harlan Krumholz, a Professor of Cardiology. He pointed to widespread efforts to promote preventive care as contributing to the reported gains.

With its emphasis on prevention and early detection of chronic conditions, adding MedBen WellLiving to your health care plan can be an effective means of helping your employees reduce their heart attack risk. Through our primary prevention program, plan members work with their family doctors to control high blood pressure and bad cholesterol.

Plan members who are at higher risk for heart attack can also benefit from our specialty care program. We offer individualized nurse coaching to help members address coronary artery disease, hypertension and cholesterol issues.

Through primary prevention and specialty care, MedBen WellLiving can help you take a proactive approach to a healthier workplace. Find out how by contacting Vice President of Sales & Marketing Brian Farfus at 888-627-8683 or bfargus@medben.com.
