Mobile Health Screenings Come Under Scrutiny
Health Leaders Media

The debate over screening for heart disease and other conditions is playing out in a consumer group’s campaign to get hospitals to cut ties with the mobile screening company HealthFair Health Screening.

A handful of hospitals have discontinued their relationships with Florida-based HealthFair after Public Citizen’s Health Research Group (HRG) accused the company of “fear-mongering.” In June, Public Citizen contacted HealthFair’s hospital clients and The Joint Commission to complain that company overstates the health benefits of its screening programs.
