Integrated, Diagnostics-Driven, At-Home Care
For almost a decade, Everly Health has enabled over 50 million at-home tests for millions of people. In a 2022 JD Power survey, telehealth encounters were reported to be preferred to in-person visits for several forms of routine care, with more than 70% of people preferring telehealth for reviewing medication options and discussing test results. A key area for potential improvements in care is the diagnosis and management of sexually transmitted infections (STIs, also called STDs), most of which require some form of laboratory testing to aid in diagnosis. Virtual care alone is often not suitable to diagnose an STI, but in collaboration with testing, accuracy of diagnosis and access to timely treatment is at your fingertips. Virtual care combined with at-home testing minimizes barriers to access and stigma associated with testing.
In addition, Everly Health addresses access to diagnostics and care. Approximately 99 million people in the U.S. live in health provider shortage areas (HPSAs), making diagnostics-driven, high-quality virtual care that meets people where they are mission critical. Twenty percent of Everlywell STI tests sold between 2021-2022 were purchased by people in rural areas, reinforcing the impact of virtual care and at-home solutions in areas with limited access to in-person care.
Available in all 50 states and covered by many major insurance plans, Virtual Care Visits create a seamless test-to-treat experience for people aged 18 and above, evaluating health conditions including COVID-19, flu, sexually transmitted infections (STIs), urinary tract infections (UTIs), thyroid, weight management, and men’s and women’s health, and importantly, expand access to care. The visits are priced at $59 when paying out of pocket. The visits begin with a 20 to 30-minute comprehensive telehealth visit with a licensed, board-certified medical professional on a HIPAA-compliant platform. Using industry- leading technology to ensure personal information is safe and confidential, the medical professional will suggest a personalized care plan which may include diagnostic testing and results review, prescription medicine, and/or lifestyle recommendations.
Virtual Care Visits are not intended for people experiencing life-threatening symptoms or who have already been diagnosed with a condition and require recurring prescriptions or ongoing management of a chronic condition.
