BioSignia Honored in Business Leader Media’s Healthiest Company Competition

Research Triangle Park, N.C. – August, 2009 – BioSignia, a predictive modeling company delivering innovative healthcare solutions, was honored in the 2009 Healthiest Company Competition, sponsored by Rex Healthcare and Business Leader Media. BioSignia was honored for its work in developing and refining Know Your NumberŪ, the first disease-specific risk assessment tool to predict an individual’s risk of chronic preventable diseases such as diabetes and heart disease. The judges applauded BioSignia for giving its employees access to the same diagnostic tool being sold to clients.

“Our employees believe and live the message we tell our customers everyday about how our disease-specific risk assessment tool can change and save lives,” says Dr. David Michael, Medical Director of BioSignia. “We are honored to be recognized as one of the top companies in the area for our health practices.”

The Know Your Number assessment takes an individual’s vital information, family history, lifestyle habits and key blood values. It then uses its patented technology called Synthesis Analysis to produce a detailed report showing a person’s risk of developing nine chronic diseases. The report also shows what specific changes can be made to reduce the risk.

Dr. Michael says each BioSignia employee takes the Know Your Number test to learn their disease risk and it has been a life-changing experience for some. BioSignia was one of 24 Triangle companies recently honored in the Healthiest Company Competition.

“We advise companies how to use Know Your Number to motivate their employees to reduce their disease risk and live healthier lives,” adds Dr. Michael. “If that is our top priority with clients, we need to do the same at BioSignia.”
