Nex Medical Solutions: Introducing Cutting-Edge Preventive Healthcare to the Frontline Practitioners

Our healthcare system is in crisis; access to early disease detection and preventive healthcare services remain highly deficient across the U.S. healthcare landscape. According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), only 8 percent of U.S. adults receive appropriate preventive healthcare services. Delayed care, on the one hand, creates an alarming situation for patients who have gone undiagnosed for their underlying diseases, and on the other hand, it places a substantial amount of clinical and financial burden on the healthcare system as a whole. The only way out of this crisis is to provide our healthcare system leading-edge preventive healthcare technology and services accessible to people via healthcare practitioners at the point of care. This is precisely the value Nex Medical Solutions (NMS) provides - a leader in early disease detection medical technology, incorporating wellness and population health management.

NMS, through its non-invasive medical device data system, the NMS-100, provides frontline healthcare practitioners better access to state-of-the-art medical technology that provides early disease detection and advanced preventive healthcare services to patients at the point of care. At the same time, while delivering such transformative services, NMS platform also positions the practitioners to operate at a profit via prompt reimbursements from all major payers.

At the Vanguard of Population Health Management & Wellness

The NMS-100 provides a comprehensive assessment of the body’s primary homeostatic health regulatory functions empowering physicians to detect, prevent, mitigate, and reverse the complications of diabetes, heart disease, cardiovascular disease, and various other chronic diseases very early, prior to their diagnosis from more conventional tests. The assessment generates over 30 markers and anatomical data points to develop a three-tiered assessment of the autonomic nervous system (ANS), cardiovascular function, and lifestyle (body composition and fitness) of the patient. While the ANS assessment includes analysis of cardiac autonomic reflex, heart rate variability, and sudomotor function, the vascular function assessment covers endothelial regulation, advanced hypertension analysis, arterial stiffness, and ankle brachial index (ABI).

Additionally, the NMS-100 formulates a personalized wellness report with a (patented) cardiometabolic score for the patient utilizing this data from the ANS, cardiovascular systems and lifestyle assessments. The aggregate numerical patient cardiometabolic health risk score ranges from 0-100 and presents a report card for the patient’s overall health, providing an all-inclusive view of a patient’s cardiometabolic health risks and conditioning levels. While this personal health risk profile enables physicians to understand the patient’s health better and develop the best course of care possible, it also signals to patients about their existing complications and gives them an awareness of the critical role they play in their healthcare.

“Created by a team of physicians, medical experts and scientifically validated by numerous clinical studies conducted on three continents, the NMS-100 provides leading-edge, early disease detection medical technology—usually only available in major hospital systems—to the frontline physicians at the point of care, and cost-effectively,” states Travis Baggett, executive vice president of Nex Medical Solutions.

Enhancing Patient Compliance

The primary challenge with patient compliance regarding diabetes, heart and cardiovascular disease is that these diseases progress asymptomatically over a long period of time. Patients do not “feel” themselves becoming diseased and as a result do not feel the need to comply with their physician’s lifestyle modification and/or pharma recommendations. The NMS-100 assessment is a game changer in this regard because it demonstrates via simple, user-friendly test results the patient’s disease risk progression. Patients, many for the first time, are often compelled to comply.

The NMS-100 provides a customized and complete wellness roadmap for provider and patient, developing a personalized wellness program for the patient that is tailored to their dysfunction.
The customized wellness program and personalized cardiometabolic health score fosters patients to better understand their health and viscerally motivates them to improve their health score, thereby taking a more active role in their healthcare.

How patient compliance is enhanced can be best reflected through this example. Let’s say a patient is insulin resistant, which is an asymptomatic precursor to Type-2 Diabetes and implicated in several serious disease states. NMS patented technology powers the NMS-100 to detect insulin resistance non-invasively and lets physicians devise a care plan that prevents the on-set of Type-2 Diabetes. Equally as important, their cardiometabolic health score can act as a wake-up call for the patient and subsequently motivates them to adopt an appropriate lifestyle. This type of patient engagement and intrinsic motivation consequently averts the risk of developing chronic conditions like type 2 diabetes, heart disease and other chronic diseases.

A Comprehensive Platform to Improve Practice Economics

NMS one-of-its-kind platform notably combines cutting-edge technology with superior population health management services to seamlessly facilitate its integration into an existing medical practice workflow. NMS, for instance, has developed a risk stratification analysis of the entire patient population, that creates significant efficiency for physicians when determining the medical necessity for each patient. NMS thus provides the practices not just with cutting-edge medical technology, but also with workflows that enhance overall efficiency of the technology. The platform can also be interfaced with EMR/EHR scheduling software to promptly notify the doctors when an eligible patient has an appointment, ensuring the best clinical value for the patient. It is a “set it and forget it” system for healthcare practitioners to optimize patient management strategy and healthcare results.
There are also multiple reimbursable (CPT) codes available with the NMS-100, which helps increase practice revenue. Based on the CPT code reimbursements, NMS clients report positive cash flow from the onset of the NMS-100’s implementation. The multifaceted approach of NMS thereby allows practices to realize optimal clinical benefits as well as economic value.

A Plug-and-Play System that Can Revolutionize Healthcare

While having such expansive competencies, the onboarding process for the platform is straightforward, highly efficient, and the learning curve is simple. NMS’s on-site device implementation, practitioner and staff training, such as clinical dynamics, reimbursements and process flow advancements, make the platform a plug-and-play system for medical practices.
With the enormous potential to revolutionize preventive healthcare delivery on the frontline and improve the revenue for practices, NMS is well positioned to dramatically change the healthcare landscape for the better. NMS inventive approach to addressing the health and wellness challenges across the broad spectrum of healthcare indeed transcends the current preventive healthcare possibilities. “Our goal with this revolutionary, early disease detection technology, is to transform healthcare delivery across the world,” concludes Baggett.
