9am.health & BioReference to offer at-home diagnostic laboratory tests

Patients can avail seamless experience and convenient at-home specimen collection service through Scarlet Health®

9am.health, a virtual diabetes clinic, has revealed a new collaboration with BioReference Laboratories - a wholly owned subsidiary of OPKO Health – to allow patients with the facility to provide blood samples for diagnostic laboratory tests from their own home or workplace.

The primary goal of the collaboration is to leverage BioReference’s integrated digital platform, Scarlet Health®, to ensure convenience for patients.

The 9am.health-BioReference virtual integrated facility is expected to promote utmost convenience with at-home specimen collection avoiding patients the trouble and expenses associated with commute and relatively easier and faster seamless scheduling experience. This apart, the facility would also offer real-time location updates notifying patients of when a Scarlet Health Professional will arrive and accurate analysis of laboratory test results by integrating API (Application Programming Interface) into the 9am.health platform.

Extending its at-home self-tests for A1c and cholesterol patients, 9am.health is now offering patients access to a comprehensive laboratory testing for monitoring kidney and liver health to identify chemical balance and metabolic state of the body.

Paul Geevarghese, Chief Medical Officer at 9am.health, explained the benefits of sending a health professional to a patient’s home – allowing them to recover the most comprehensive data on cholesterol, blood glucose, liver and kidney function, electrolytes and more.

According to Paul, this system helps them to thoroughly eliminate challenges introduced by traditional medical care, notably the burden associated with routinely visits to clinics which encourage most patients to stop therapy.

With 9am.health’s platform, patients can opt for a personalised treatment plan accessing via any device to fill out a brief medical questionnaire, which will be followed by a licensed medical professional connecting with patients to prescribe the relevant medications and lab tests.

As per patient requirement and condition, a Scarlet Health Professional to collect specimen can be opted for a monthly $15 within the personalized treatment plan.
