As we have monitored the developments with COVID-19, we have made every effort to prepare ourselves to protect the health of both our members and our team of caregivers. We recognize that these are uncertain times, and our team is working diligently to provide as much support as possible. As things progress in the coming days, weeks and beyond, we will remain committed to providing quality healthcare around the clock.
With the coronavirus in full-swing and showing no signs of slowing down, we are hoping for the best, but preparing for the worst. In times like these it becomes especially clear that quality healthcare can make all the difference in a person’s outcome. Whether through health and wellness optimization or risk management, we are here to support our members' needs.
As cases of COVID-19 continue to mount across the globe, we’ve turned to our resident infectologist, Dr. Yolanda Rodriguez, for a breakdown of everything you need to know about this novel coronavirus. Whether you’re wondering how the virus is transmitted, what considerations to take into account when traveling, or even if it’s ok to place an order through Amazon, we’ve got you covered.
There's a reason it's called "business." People in the business world are busy. There’s always another meeting to rush to, a conference to attend, a phone call to make, an email to return… you get the idea.
Success in business depends on a person being mentally and physically fit, and it's often a challenge to maintain a healthy work-life balance. Whether you’re a small business owner, CEO, manager, or in sales, it's impossible to give your top performance if you’re not feeling your best.
This where concierge care comes in, and why Pravan Health is such a great option for business people in Puerto Rico.
Did you know that over 90% of New Year’s resolutions are never kept? It likely doesn’t come as much of a surprise, but since hindsight is 20/20 (couldn’t help a 2020 reference!), we’re here to help you come out on the right side, statistically speaking, this year!
If you’re trying to figure out how to create a healthy balance through the holiday season, you’re not alone. The best way to make this Thanksgiving a special occasion is by sharing a meaningful experience with family and friends. The priority should be to connect with your loved ones and share quality time with them. You can do this by being more mindful and conscious of the time you spend together, demonstrating appreciation, and finding some time to play and feel festive. While food can play a central role, holiday engagements are about so much more, and what’s important is to be more present in your everyday life.
Stress, also known as the silent killer - mental or emotional strain or tension that results from adverse or very demanding circumstances – can weigh heavily on a person's health. It can increase a person's risk for heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and many different mental health problems like anxiety and sleeping disorders, something very common among our patient base in Puerto Rico. Stress reduces the quality of life and makes it difficult to handle the day-to-day pressures of living.
We've noticed that many of our patients don't make it to their annual gynecologist visit, even when they clearly recognize the importance of this appointment. An annual gynecological exam is a fundamental part of preventive medical care for women, and is critical for identifying any risk factors for disease (cancers, in particular) as well as detecting any existing medical issues. This is an appointment to make, not miss!
Having said this, we understand why it happens. When you're busy balancing work, family, or just life in general, it's very hard to consciously commit to spending hours or more waiting to see a physician, which is typically the case in Puerto Rico. We know you’ve got a lot going on, and the last thing we want is for your hectic schedule to prevent you from taking care of yourself.
