We are committed to delivering the best patient experience possible. We're focused on you, the health consumer, and our mission is to innovate from within the healthcare system by delivering the most relevant, expert and engaging information and care...when, where and how you want it.
Most of us have come to seek health information online. It's often the first thing we do when we're concerned about a symptom, a friend's diagnosis, a second opinion, or seeking answers to help us better manage a chronic condition. We've become expert researchers, but what happens when we actually need healthcare services?
Primary care doctors rarely have more than 12 minutes to spend with each patient...and they're not specialists, nor do they have the time to read our well-sourced materials. The challenge of access to quality, affordable care is only going to get worse as some 30 million additional Americans are covered by health insurance.
We're introducing Online Clinics to pair expert information with quality care, providing greater ease and access for the millions who are seeking help the way we do every day...online.
While telehealth and online care are here to stay, the conditions addressed are typically common and minor, like stuffy noses and sore throats. Analyte Online Clinics specialize, with our first Online Clinic focused on sexual health.
Take the example of Peter, a single 34-year-old male living in Dallas. He is recently divorced and dating...and thinking about his health. He searches for information about sexually transmitted diseases and learns from our Online Clinic about infections and how to stay safe. He reads a post from an Analyte physician blogger about DNA-based testing and he uses a tool to assess his personal risk. For most online health sites, this is where the experience stops.
But...Peter has a question. He chats live with an Analyte counselor and, after discussing his level of risk, he decides to get tested for STDs. He selects a panel of tests, gets an authorization from an Analyte physician and – the next morning – Peter goes to a lab just around the corner from his office to get tested. In a day or so, his test results are in…happily, Peter is negative. But if his test results indicated he needed further medical attention, he would be engaged in a free phone consultation with an on-call Analyte physician who would either refer Peter to a specialist in his area or, if medically appropriate, would call in a prescription to Peter's neighborhood pharmacy.
