The programme to help predict illnesses and take preventive measures
Healthspring along with Xcode Life Sciences have come together to launch a new programme for predictive and preventive healthcare.
Called the ‘Gene Health program’, it starts with a gene analysis which predicts and identifies any predispositions that an individual has for a particular chronic disease. A prevention plan is then customised for a particular person after understanding his unique health profile.
The programme reportedly includes:
Genetic assessment via a saliva test
Comprehensive assessment, including family history, medical history, bio-medical parameters, lifestyle and genetic predispositions
Comprehensive assessment report and recommendations
Counselling programme with a team of physicians, dieticians and physiotherapists, targeting areas such as heart health, weight management, energetics, performance, inflammation and immunity.
Kaushik Sen, Co-Founder and CEO said, “With the launch of the Gene Health Program, we would like to reach out to people who would like to make their lives healthier and be prepared to take precautionary measures, if any probable health problems/aliments are indicated.
Saleem Mohammed, CEO, Xcode Life Sciences said, “The Gene Health Programme enables us to assist and reach out to people with the help of genetics and bioinformatics. This program is the key towards addressing top lifestyle-related health factors that are affecting corporate citizens across the globe and we will look to address these issues jointly with Healthspring.”
