Life Line Screening is a company dedicated to bringing preventative medicine to thousands of people across the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia under the company name Screen for Life. They are at the forefront of screening for potentially life-threatening diseases such as carotid artery disease, lung cancer, type 2 diabetes, prostate cancer and high blood pressure. The benefit of using Life Line Screening is not only to detect serious health problems but also to save money – catching issues early can lower medical bills by thousands of dollars.
The company primarily uses ultrasound screenings to check their patients’ overall health. Ultrasounds use high frequency waves to take photographs of internal organs, bones and body structures. They are typically used in checking pregnancies and bone density testing, and are also a useful tool in spotting irregularities in the body. Life Line Screening also uses finger-stick blood screening to check enzyme, cholesterol and blood sugar levels. Life Line Screening even offers non-invasive electrocardiographs to test for atrial fibrillation, which can lead to blood clots, heart failure and strokes.
Life Line Screening was founded by Colin Scully and Timothy Phillips in 1993. Since its inception, the company has done over 8 million health screenings on individuals and has held over 16,000 community oriented events. Preventative health seekers have the option to schedule an appointment or find an event near them.
They also offer employer based corporate screenings. Their Corporate Wellness Program offers valuable ways for their employees to monitor and upgrade their health. Through education, engagement and empowering employees, employers can play a part in the overall well-being of their workforce. Life Line Screening supports healthy lifestyles with their blog, offering articles on stress reduction, recipes, personal stories and health news. The site includes informative videos on common health care issues.
