Durham, NC (PressExposure) July 03, 2008 -- BioSignia, a predictive modeling company delivering innovative healthcare solutions, was honored in the 2008 Healthiest Company Competition, sponsored by Rex Healthcare and Business Leader Media. BioSigniaâs recognition is due in part to its work in developing Know Your NumberÂ®, the first disease-specific risk assessment tool to predict an individualâs risk of developing chronic preventable diseases such as diabetes and heart disease. This revolutionary testing tool isnât just benefitting BioSigniaâs clients, but keeping its employees healthy too.
âWe are honored to be recognized as one of the top companies in the area for our healthy-minded practices,â says Tim Smith, president and COO of BioSignia. âThrough our work with Know Your Number, our employees live and breathe the message our disease-specific risk assessment tool sends and you can see it when you walk through our offices.â
In 30 minutes or less, the Know Your Number assessment takes an individualâs information such as their weight, blood pressure, family history, lifestyle habits and key blood values. Then, it uses a proprietary technology called Synthesis Analysisâ¢ to produce a detailed report on your risks of developing specific chronic preventable diseases. Itâs unlike any other health risk assesment tool because it uses a multi-dimensional approach by isolating individual and aggregate data on a multitude of risk factors.
Smith says each BioSignia employee has taken the Know Your Number test to learn how to reduce their risks of developing chronic preventable diseases -- for some employees itâs been a life-changing experience. BioSignia was one of 24 Triangle companies recently recognized in the Healthiest Company Competition.
âCompanies can really help motivate their employees to target their specific disease risks and adopt healthier habits,â adds Smith. âAnd thatâs top on our list at BioSignia.â
