Hooper Holmes (NYSE Amex:HH) today introduced Hooper Holmes FastTrack, a new health screening service designed to help wellness and disease management companies meet their customers’ immediate needs.

Hooper Holmes FastTrack exploits the Company’s unique operational infrastructure, proprietary IT platform and network of certified examiners to set up a standard health screening in as little as three days. The service provides immediate handling of the screening assignment with either standard lab panel venipuncture or a five-panel fingerstick test. Fingerstick screenings and engagement counseling are available for screenings of 20 participants or more. Venipuncture blood testing can be provided for any size group, or even a single individual. Venipuncture blood testing is provided by the Company’s Heritage Labs division in Olathe, KS.

“The fall is the busiest season for health care, and wellness companies frequently receive fast turnaround requests that, until now, they have not been able to fulfill,” said Ransom J. Parker, President and CEO of Hooper Holmes. “We were the first to build a nationwide screening organization. Now we’ve engineered and packaged a standard biometric screening service that’s ready to go. Hooper Holmes FastTrack makes it even easier for new customers to try our services.”

The Company is introducing Hooper Holmes FastTrack at The Forum 11, the leading conference in wellness, prevention and chronic care management, now being held at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square, 333 O’Farrell Street. Hooper Holmes is the official screening sponsor at conference, and is providing all attendees with a complimentary health screening. The Forum 11 is hosted by the Care Continuum Alliance with support from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
