Improve Patient Satisfaction and Increase Practice Revenue Simultaneously 

Welcome, Medical Providers!

Diabetes Testing Centers™ (DTC) is "diabetes-centric" and has been providing comprehensive medical assessments to primary care providers across the U.S. since 2010. While elevated blood glucose is a key diabetes indicator, the disease's impact "go beyond blood sugars" alone. Our comprehensive testing services are designed to specifically target a wide range of diabetes-related conditions with the highest associated risks of morbidity and mortality. These conditions are often overlooked or can remain unidentified due to the time constraints faced by healthcare providers.

We offer both in-office assessments and mobile health screenings in select adult communities, providing consolidated care. By using this dual strategy, we can increase the likelihood of detecting high-risk conditions early, leading to better health outcomes. This approach helps make up for the time lost by providers due to busy schedules, ensuring more patients receive needed attention. This strategy not only benefits patients by providing better care but also increases practice revenue by reaching more individuals and detecting health issues early.

We Are "Diabetes-Centric"

Being "diabetes-centric" means medical clinics can focus on different aspects of managing and treating diabetes, beyond just monitoring blood glucose levels. It includes a variety of diagnostic tests, treatments, and patient education aimed at addressing many complications associated with diabetes, such as cardiovascular issues, neuropathy, retinopathy, and others. This holistic approach ensures that all facets of a patient's health related to diabetes are consolidated and managed efficiently.

If clinics cannot be fully diabetes-centric, it is still beneficial to focus on one area of diabetes care, even in a narrow scope. This targeted approach can significantly improve patient outcomes by addressing specific, high-risk aspects of diabetes management. For example, offering specialized services such as cardiovascular risk assessments can be highly impactful. Cardiovascular disease is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in diabetes patients. By providing focused cardiovascular screenings, clinics can detect early signs of heart disease, enabling timely interventions that may prevent serious complications and improve overall patient health.

Benefits of a Targeted Approach:

1. Improved Patient Outcomes: Focusing on high-risk areas allows for early detection and intervention, reducing the likelihood of severe complications.

2. Increased Patient Satisfaction: Specialized services can enhance patient trust and satisfaction by addressing their most pressing health concerns.

3. Cost Efficiency: Early intervention in specific areas can lower overall healthcare costs by preventing the progression of serious conditions that require expensive treatments.

4. Enhanced Clinic Reputation: Offering specialized diabetes care can differentiate a clinic from competitors, attracting more patients seeking targeted care.

By concentrating on key areas of diabetes-related conditions, clinics can make a significant impact on patient health and well-being, even if they cannot provide comprehensive diabetes-centric services.

Assessments

First Identify Risks 

Of all assessments, cardiovascular disease is the most important and is the leading cause of death that affects both men and women. Early detection and intervention can lead to better outcomes, so it's important to prioritize screening in primary care and other medical specialties. With the emergence of long COVID-19, there is a growing concern regarding its potential impact on cardiovascular health. Many long COVID-19 patients report symptoms such as chest pain, shortness of breath, and palpitations, which could indicate underlying cardiac issues. Therefore, implementing comprehensive cardiovascular testing in primary care medical clinics is crucial for identifying and addressing any potential cardiovascular complications arising from long COVID-19. By incorporating routine screenings and assessments into primary care settings, healthcare providers can effectively monitor patients' cardiovascular health, mitigate risks, and ultimately reduce the burden of heart attack and stroke in the population.

Our CardioANS test is used by healthcare providers to evaluate their patient's risk of mortality and major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE). The CardioANS graphs the heartbeat as it moves through systolic and diastolic cycles. It tracks deviations in fingertip pressure caused by flexible arteries and produces a tight, regular graph for stiff arteries. Using a proprietary algorithm, the device analyses arterial pulse wave variations and compares them against a large body of research to accurately assess arterial hardening. 

The Framingham Heart Study found that individuals with asymptomatic left ventricular systolic dysfunction (LVSD) had nearly 5x increase in the risk of developing symptomatic heart failure (HF) compared to those with normal left ventricular function.

Long COVID-19 Consequences

For some people, Long COVID can last weeks, months, or years after COVID-19 illness and can sometimes result in disability. COVID-19 now has more data on how it affects the cardiovascular system, particularly the heart's left ventricle. Cardiomyopathy in COVID-19 patients is when the heart muscle becomes inflamed and weakened due to the viral infection. Many people who have recovered from COVID-19 have reported experiencing lingering cardiovascular symptoms such as abnormal heartbeats, dizziness, and shortness of breath.

Individuals with Long COVID, especially those with cardiovascular symptoms, should be tested in primary care to determine if comprehensive imaging studies like echocardiograms are needed to evaluate the left ventricle. Monitoring the left ventricle is crucial for developing interventions to address the virus's lasting cardiovascular effects. Additionally, cognitive assessments should be conducted to evaluate cognitive function and provide appropriate care for "brain fog" experienced by post-COVID patients.

Features of the tests:


COVID-19 survivors, regardless of infection severity, are more likely to develop cardiovascular conditions such as heart failure or coronary disease within 30 days post-infection.

Therapies

FDA Cleared Prefabricated Oral Appliance

 Same Day Therapy

Introducing ApneaReliefMD, our tailored Sleep Apnea Solution designed for medical clinics with MDs, DOs, NPs, and PAs. Our program was specifically created to manage obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and treat it with Oral Appliance Therapy (OAT), a therapy that not only addresses sleep apnea but also reduces cardiovascular risks and other related health issues. Oral Appliance Therapy (OAT) offers several health benefits for patients with diabetes and prediabetes:

1. Improves Glycemic Control: By improving sleep quality and reducing sleep apnea, OAT can help stabilize blood sugar levels.

2. Reduces Cardiovascular Risks: OAT mitigates risks associated with cardiovascular issues, which are common complications in diabetes.

3. Enhances Insulin Sensitivity: Better sleep can improve insulin sensitivity, aiding in diabetes management.

4. Decreases Inflammation: Reducing apnea episodes lowers systemic inflammation, beneficial for diabetic patients.

5. Boosts Overall Quality of Life: Better sleep quality leads to improved energy levels, mood, and overall well-being.

By addressing obstructive sleep apnea effectively, OAT supports better health outcomes for individuals with diabetes and prediabetes. 

Oral Appliance Therapy (OAT) is an alternative to CPAP therapy that utilizes custom-fitted oral appliances. This treatment approach prioritizes patient comfort and convenience, offering a comfortable, portable, and silent option. Unlike CPAP machines, which can be noisy and bulky, OAT devices are discreet, allowing individuals to sleep without any disturbance. The portability of oral appliances enhances patient satisfaction, enabling them to continue their treatment even while traveling or away from home. By providing a more comfortable and convenient option, OAT encourages greater adherence to therapy, ultimately leading to improved outcomes for individuals with obstructive sleep apnea. Our comprehensive solution empowers medical providers to optimize patient sleep health while maximizing revenue opportunities.

Silent, Comfortable, and Portable 

First, Do No Harm.

Oral Appliance Therapy (OAT) is a modern alternative to CPAP therapy for people with mild and moderate obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). While CPAP requires a mask and machine, which may affect people with claustrophobia and people with facial hair. OAT uses custom-made oral appliances that are custom lab-made based on the teeth of patients which is comfortable, easy to carry, and quiet. This approach makes it easier for patients to comply with the treatment, leading to better results. OAT is also considered the first-line therapy for OSA in many medical guidelines, proving its effectiveness and reliability. By providing a more comfortable and convenient treatment option, medical providers can encourage patients to stay engaged and improve their long-term health when managing OSA. Medical providers should consider recommending the affordable self-pay prefabricated oral appliance (above), which is a same-day therapy appliance, for a 1-2 week titration period before progressing to the customized lab-made oral appliance.
