SignatureMD Announces Partnerships With Cutting-Edge Laboratories, Testing and Screening Companies to Optimize Patient-Doctor Offerings

SANTA MONICA, CA--(Marketwire - January 28, 2011) - SignatureMD, a California-based consumer healthcare services company transitioning primary care physicians' practices to the personalized medicine model, has announced strategic partnerships with Genova Diagnostics and Life Line Screening. Both of these companies provide high level, advanced preventative healthcare testing and screening services that support the SignatureMD concierge physician's prevailing goal of identifying and addressing health risks before they become health problems.

As SignatureMD continues to expand and establish a growing national presence, it is strengthening its commitment to local healthcare communities by empowering physicians and patients with reduced fees and improved access to the latest medical advancements and tests.

"Genova Diagnostics and Life Line Screening each provide life enhancing and potentially life-saving medical information as a result of their tests," said Matt Jacobson, CEO and founder of SignatureMD. "Because of our relationships with these companies, our doctors and their patients can take advantage of technologies and services that leave them better informed."

Genova Diagnostics is a cutting-edge clinical laboratory that performs tests to help patients understand their genetic risk factors for disease and provides doctors with information that allows them to create individualized prevention plans. With over 125 specialized diagnostic assessments, Genova Diagnostics has the ability to evaluate the critical areas of wellness, which allow doctors to make accurate recommendations to patients. 

Life Line Screening is the leading, and only national, provider of community-based preventive health screenings in the United States. Life Line Screening representatives perform painless, non-invasive tests, the results of which will help individuals identify their risk for stroke, vascular diseases or osteoporosis early enough for their physician to begin preventive procedures.

Adding these partners to its repertoire is one of many ways in which SignatureMD is striving to ensure it can provide the most superior and comprehensive healthcare options for its doctors and patients. The addition of these partnerships reinforces SignatureMD's principles of providing predictive and preventative, rather than reactive, medicine.
