Colonoscopy Health

by | May 18, 2022 | Uncategorized

Health technology and health management processes provide life-changing opportunities for those with the foresight to act quickly.

There has never been a better time to be proactive in the early detection of health concerns. A colonoscopy is a medical procedure that allows a doctor to examine the lining of a patient’s large intestine and rectum. A colonoscopy can help find ulcers, polyps, tumors, and bleeding in the colon or rectum. It can also be used to screen for colorectal cancer.

How Often

For men and women 50 years of age or older, a colonoscopy is recommended every ten years. For those with a family history of colorectal cancer, more frequent examinations are suggested. Colonoscopies are performed as outpatient procedures, providing patients with the opportunity to return home the same day. The importance of a colonoscopy cannot be overstated. It is a simple, quick procedure that can save a life.

So why aren’t more people proactive in scheduling colonoscopies? The reasons vary, ranging from misperceptions about the process to uncertainty with respect to both the time and expense associated with the procedure.

For years, the healthcare industry has been shrouded in ambiguity and confusion with respect to both pricing and scheduling. In an environment where confused consumers tend not to engage, it’s easy to understand how the most vulnerable constituency might delay action, often to their own detriment.

Transparent, upfront, fixed pricing

With proofs of concept ranging from the efficiency engines in travel, transportation, and consumer product delivery, the healthcare industry has recently developed safe, effective ways to eliminate unnecessary layers of logistical and financial processing to provide an economically transformational solution to the uncertainty traditionally associated with healthcare and associated budgeting. WellBridge Surgical has brought high-quality surgical services directly to patients with cost certainty and the peace of mind that people need and deserve when proactively dealing with preventative healthcare desires.

As Americans become more conscious of the foods they eat, the calories they ingest, and the number of steps documented on their electronic fitness accessories, it stands to reason that the healthcare industry would move toward a more consumer-friendly model, and WellBridge has been at the forefront of the movement in the Indianapolis area.

Where leaders lead, the industry tends to follow along, and one might expect to see more examples of transparent, fixed, up-front pricing working their way into the mainstream. For now, WellBridge seems to be leading the field in patient advocacy and service.
