Life Line Screening was established in the year 1993, in Florida, in U.S. by Timothy Phillips and Colin Scully. The company is located in Austin, Texas and it’s a privately-run P&W (prevention & wellness). It operates health screening services that are based on the community for adults all overs the United States and the U.K. By the year 1998, Life Line Screening had expanded all over the U.S. and offered screenings to over 500,000 people.
In 2007, the company added finger prick blood testing to its already existing screening services, to be used in screening for inflammation (C-reactive protein), diabetes (glucose), and cholesterol count, in particular, the lipid panel. The company’s services for preventive health screening were launched in U.K, in the year 2007. The services expanded further and included atrial fibrillation (AF) screenings.
In 2012, the health screening company started providing services in Australia under the name Screen for Life. Globally, Life Line Screening has conducted more than eight million screenings, from the day it was launched. It conducts more than a million screenings annually, including electrocardiographs, blood screenings, and ultrasound scans. The common diseases detected by these types of screenings include AAA (abdominal aortic aneurysm), PAD (peripheral arterial disease), and include atrial fibrillation.
Every year, there are more than 16,000 events for the local community providing these screening services. Usually, the company charge for their services. Several studies have been carried to validate methods of screening that are used by organizations, including USF (University of South Florida). Since Oct. 1, 1996, Better Business Bureau (BBB) accredited Life Line Screening. The Standards of BBB Accreditation involve a commitment to making a good faith effort in resolving any complaint from the consumer.
Life Line Screening earned Better Business Bureau letter grade of A+, which was on A+ to F scale. The factors that raised the company’s rating included the low volume of complaint that BBB filed for an organization of its size, the company’s response to the filed complaints, the complaints’ resolutions filed against the company, and the sufficient company’s background information given to Better Business Bureau.
