Analyte Health, Teladoc partner for lab diagnostics services

Published 10 January 2017

Analyte Health and Teladoc have announced a partnership, in a bid to deliver lab diagnostics services through the Teladoc telehealth platform.

“The evolution of telehealth has changed the way we receive and deliver care. Our integrated solution enhances diagnostic capabilities for physicians while meeting patients’ growing demands for private and convenient health care,” said Dr. Frank Cockerill, CEO, Analyte Health.

“Teladoc’s leadership in the telehealth industry has transformed the approach to care and we are excited to assist them in expanding their services. The partnership between Analyte Health and Teladoc bridges the gap between lab testing and telehealth, and together, we are reinventing the health care experience for patients and physicians.”

“The partnership with Analyte further supports our goal to expand access to quality, affordable care through continued innovation of the Teladoc telehealth platform,” said Jason Gorevic, CEO, Teladoc.

No one else is able to rival this breadth of comprehensive lab services. This new dimension enables us to bring the lab to patients during their telemedicine visits to further support quality outcomes.”

Analyte Health provides a comprehensive suite of services, including managing logistics like technological infrastructure, billing and customer support. The process also makes it easier for both physicians and patients.

Now, with the click of a button, physicians in the Teladoc network can order the lab tests they need to confirm diagnoses, for conditions in the areas of acute and chronic care, behavioral health, and preventive health.

Teladoc members will be directed to a convenient specimen collection location and lab results are available within three days for the physician and patient to discuss appropriate treatment and next steps.

 In future phases, these services will be available in same-day, on-demand mobile experiences. The solution opens doors to reach more patients and provide them with secure, private, and effective care anytime, anywhere.

Analyte Health is an integrated healthcare partner that connects patients and telehealth providers with laboratory testing services.

Analyte Health's configurable platform allows telehealth providers to seamlessly incorporate lab testing for acute illness, chronic disease and preventive and behavioral health into the virtual doctor-patient relationship – increasing the quality and accuracy of diagnoses and treatment plans.
