Prevent Diabetic Amputations

Peripheral artery disease and diabetes accounts for 54% of all amputations that occur in the United States1. Through PADnet, you can help prevent your patients from having to suffer an amuptation.

Bend the healthcare cost curve

PADnet is a unique solution, in that it can improve your bottom line while reducing healthcare costs. For example, the annual cost to care for an average Medicare beneficiary is $11,173, but that cost rises to more than $72,000 if the patient has PAD2. With PADnet you  lower healthcare costs through the early detection and management of this chronic condition.
