Lifeline Screening: Conducting Tests to Save Lives

Lifeline Screening is a company that was established in the 1990s that provides kits and screening tests to people which enabled them to detect if they are suffering from cardiovascular diseases. The screening method is simple, and severe cardiovascular diseases have been detected since the establishment of the company. The system that was developed by Lifeline Screening is effective, and more people are using their kits to know more about their body condition. Upon diagnosing themselves if they are positive for any cardiovascular diseases, people who have took the tests from Lifeline Screening changed their lifestyles. This would ensure them that the acquisition rate of a future cardiovascular disease would be kept at a minimum.

The company is supervised by several people, and one of them is Dr. Andrew Manganaro. He is one of the company’s leaders, and they are converging often to discuss how the system can be improved, and how it changed the lives of thousands. Before establishing Lifeline Screening, Dr. Andrew Manganaro attended the New York University School of Medicine where he received his master’s degree. He has been practicing cardiovascular surgery for several years, and his profession gave him the chance to see how deadly heart diseases can be, and how it can be detected early to prevent major problems in the future. His expertise in cardiovascular surgery gave him the idea to develop a screening method that would enable everyone to determine if they are suffering from heart disease. Lifeline Screening uses ultrasound and blood sampling to identify if someone is suffering from a fatal cardiovascular disease. Many people benefitted from the system that Lifeline Screening introduced. It also resulted in the company’s exponential growth, and they also managed to operate overseas because of their success in the United States.

Patients coming from all over the United States would flock the clinic of Dr. Andrew Manganaro each day. He had to wake up early in the morning to accommodate as many patients as possible, and he would be screening each patient one after another. Using the simple screening methods by Lifeline Screening, he would be taking the specimen – like blood – into the laboratory and let the medical technicians examine it. They would then discuss what the results are, and Dr. Andrew Manganaro will be speaking with the patient to let them know what happened. Thousands of people who are unaware of their present body condition visit the clinic, hoping that they will be enlightened about their current health status. Many people feel relieved after knowing the result that they do not have any sort of heart disease, but some are feeling nervous when they find out that they have heart disease. Dr. Andrew Manganaro encourages those who have heart disease to change their lifestyle immediately.

Jorge Moll Participates In Discussions Regarding The Future Of Health Care In Brazil

Jorge Moll and Paulo Chapchap presented health managements visions of entrepreneurship. This began with a speech by the President of FEHOSUL, Cláudio José Allgayer. Three hundred people attended the debates and lectures. A speech by Jorge Moll, Rede D’Or São Luiz’s Chairman of the Board of Directors followed. He spoke of the trends in the health field, and the impact of the national and international environments on contemporary hospital management. The discussions included safety in service delivery, quality, limited resources, and infinite needs. The biggest challenge was defined as the difference between demand and supply.

 

The debates included utilitarian changes in medicine, current management, the needs of the future generations, the foresight necessary to change the thinking process, and the question of how to attend to everything. Current management was criticized for not using a mosaic of variables and the cause of the lack of growth in Brazil’s private health markets. The belief is the population must not be neglected, and the actions of the government must be expanded.

 

Jorge Moll led the activity regarding the impacts and health trends of the hospital management (https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Jorge_Moll2). He is the founder of 32 hospitals in Brazil, and the Network, and is a businessman and a cardiologist. He believes due to the size of Rio de Janeiro one hospital will not suffice, and a network is needed to efficiently serve the population (Facebook). He stated this is how the Network’s first three establishments were built with technology and quality. He said debts made the beginning difficult, but he did not give in to discouragement and accepted the large social responsibility.

 

Jorge Moll commented on Brazil’s economic crisis, and how a lot of individuals left their health plans to use SUS, or changed to a plan with lower quality and less coverage. He presented the Total Health Management Model, to provide the people with health care coverage without waste, and at a decreased cost. The doctors and businessmen do not know what becomes of their patients because there is no follow up. For this reason, Jorge Moll believes the Network can offer more understanding of the patient’s treatment, and navigate the complexity of the situation.
