Our mission is to support Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) patients, caregivers, and providers through high-touch advocacy, education, and interaction. Our high-touch approach is successful in getting patients to the right physician and to comply with lifestyle modifications. We are on the front lines with physicians and at vascular conferences to keep our knowledge current, allowing us to lead in patient education, advocacy, and support. Our vision is to improve the quality of lives of PAD sufferers. We are scaling our efforts to partner with hundreds of thousands of patients and caregivers. We are reducing healthcare costs by preventing unnecessary amputation and improving outcomes through our partnerships and lifestyle modification programs.
The Way To My Heart provides high-touch, real-time, education, advocacy, and support for peripheral artery disease patients (PAD). PAD. is one of the most debilitating diseases impacting 1 in 20 over age 50. PAD. is plaque build-up in the peripheral arteries, mainly the legs, that restricts blood flow. We help patients get the right treatment to prevent needless heart attacks, strokes, and amputations.
Our educational programs go beyond a one-sheet or tri-fold brochure. Educational programs include conferences, newsletters, LIVE Q&A, monthly PAD Orientation, and other materials.
We provide resources to help with the right diagnostic and treatment options, and to improve their long-term prognosis. Our organization includes a team of specialists from wound care nurses, physical therapists, and dietitians, to mental health experts, pharmacology, and more.
PAD patients, especially in underserved communities, need a friend in health throughout their journey to ensure a comprehensive understanding of their diagnosis and treatment options, and with compliance support for lifestyle modifications. We help set the stage for long-term relationship between patients and their care team through our unique "On Point" advocacy program.
We have reached over 10,000 patients worldwide, Saved more than 500 patients from scheduled or threatened amputation, facilitated more than 25,000 patient interactions over two years, and provided critical resources to more than 500 patients.
