Last week, we enjoyed hosting Vasanth Kainkaryam, MD, Chief Medical Officer, and Craig Foster, SVP of Commercial, from Bastion Health. Together, they delved into the world of Bastion Health, the leading national Men’s Specialty Digital Clinic.

In our concise 30-minute webinar, they shared valuable insights into the future advantages of health technology, AI, At-Home testing, and virtual care, focusing on reaching 50% of the population. Additionally, they explored practical solutions to overcome challenges related to access, privacy, and cost, all in support of men’s health.

Men’s health key statistics

Men’s health significantly impacts productivity and healthcare costs. Historically, numbers show how low engagement in preventive care and screenings has led to poor health outcomes.

  • African American men are twice as likely to die from prostate cancer compared to other men.*
  • Nearly one-third of Americans lack access to Primary Care, with men seeking preventive care services less frequently than women.**
  • Men experience a decrease in life expectancy of approximately six years compared to women, an increasing gap.***

This is where Bastion Health steps in.
