HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill. Home Access Health Corp. last week launched its latest home-testing product kit — the Check Up America Cholesterol Test Panel — at the ECRM Home Health Care conference in Chicago.
The test kit, designed for self-collection of a small finger-stick blood sample, helps ascertain total cholesterol, HDL levels, LDL levels and triglyceride levels.
According to the American Heart Association, as many as 98.6 million Americans have elevated cholesterol levels, which places them at increased risk for heart disease. The CheckUp America Cholesterol Panel includes a collection kit, laboratory test services and support from the company’s medically directed contact center. Each kit includes everything necessary to collect, package and mail a small finger-stick sample to the laboratory using a prepaid, pre-addressed mailer. All testing is performed in a CLIA-regulated, CAP-certified laboratory.
