Wellpath Clinic Leading the Way In Preventative Healthcare

    TORONTO, Aug. 12 /CNW/ - While the U.S. is on the brink of something huge
with its push towards healthcare reform, Canada's own Wellpath Clinic is on
the cutting edge with a focus on prevention. They have come up with a new
approach to preventative healthcare, a key focus in Canada, the U.S. and
around the globe. Wellpath Clinic offers modern, accessible and personalized
care utilizing the most advanced research and tools balanced with the
comprehensive approach to overall wellness that is the cornerstone of
Naturopathic Medicine.
    Wellpath Clinic recently opened two locations in Ontario. One is in the
heart of Toronto at Bloor and Avenue Rd., while the other is at the heart of
cottage country in Port Carling. Both are well designed, modern, warm spaces
where patients can access the most current science-based treatment options
supported by the best in healthcare technology. After only a soft launch in
July, Wellpath Clinic is already busy with patients and is already planning
additional locations selectively across the Canada.
    Wellpath Clinic General Manager, Richard Porter, has extensive experience
building customer-focused businesses in a scalable way. He was instrumental in
bringing Enterprise Rent-A-Car to Canada in 1993. "There is a growing desire
for people to take more responsibility for their individual wellness. People
want to avoid trips to the hospital and enjoy long quality lives. Currently,
our healthcare system focuses primarily on helping people once they are
already sick. At Wellpath Clinic, our primary goal is prevention. We work with
our patients to find the root cause of their health concerns and to create
sustainable wellness plans to put them on the path to wellness. Our goal is to
make it an enjoyable and informative experience each time a patient comes to
    "At Wellpath Clinic we empower our patients with knowledge, tools and
support to make educated decisions regarding their short and long-term health
goals," says Doctor Kathryn Nobrega-Porter. "Naturopathic Doctors are experts
in natural solutions to health and prevention. We are detectives. We do our
best to understand each individual patient and why there is dysfunction in
their body. So much of what is challenging people at the moment can be helped
by lifestyle changes. Small changes can have a big impact on quality of life.
Our goal is to have our patients living their optimal health so they can best
enjoy their life both now and in the future."
    Wellpath Clinic is the first Naturopathic clinic to use one of the most
innovative Electronic Medical Record (EMR) systems in Canada from Nightingale
Informatix Corporation (TSX-V: NGH). Nightingale is Canada's leading EMR
provider. Its EMR product, Nightingale On Demand is a web-based system that
allows the Doctors at Wellpath Clinic to store and instantly access patient
information to easily track and manage every contact made. This creates a
complete picture of the patient's health information that is confidential,
secure and accessible no matter where they are in the world.
    Wellpath Clinic also uses Bioimpedance Analysis as an important tool for
assessing progress and managing care. This widely accepted test provides
detailed information about each patient's unique body composition, fluid
distribution, and a quantifiable value for tissue health and sustainability.
In conjunction with other information gathered, this technology is useful in
choosing a personalized treatment program for each patient and accurately
tracking its effectiveness.
    Nearly 60% of adults or 14.1 million Canadians are overweight or obese.
Heart disease and stroke costs the Canadian economy more than $22.2 billion
every year. Furthermore, 9 in 10 Canadians have at least one risk factor for
heart disease or stroke including smoking, alcohol, physical inactivity,
obesity, high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol and diabetes. Many
Canadians struggled to find the right place to go and find competent,
preventative-oriented holistic care. Wellpath Clinic is aiming to lead the way
in the preventative healthcare revolution, and they have the model to do it.
