Healthcare, not sick care
Year after year, diseases that are largely preventable take millions of lives.
Cardiovascular disease: takes 17.9 million lives annually
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD): takes 3 million lives

Your members are in dire need of true healthcare. You’re in the perfect position to deliver it. And HeadUp Systems can help you do it.
WHERE WE'VE COME FROM
Sure, we have a ‘health’ ‘care’ ‘system’ to help these people. But when you stop and think about it, the healthcare system is one you enter after you get sick. It’s a sick care system. It deals with the consequences and outcomes of not being healthy. And this system is regularly overloaded – dangerously so, in recent times.
WHERE WE'RE GOING
A healthcare system would focus on the prevention of disease – not just treatment afterwards. That system doesn’t exist. There is no health care system. A sick care system certainly has its place – everybody needs a safety net for when things go wrong, but people are in dire need of true healthcare.
