2020 changed healthcare delivery
SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) presented challenges to all aspects of daily life in the US, including healthcare delivery. The need to social distance, combined with additional strain on health systems, has led to the quick adoption of virtual care options.
What’s more, during the pandemic, many individuals did not complete routine care, like chronic disease monitoring or cancer screenings. This drop in preventive care could have a dramatic impact on employee health, as well as an organization’s healthcare spend. To help employees get their health back on track, employers can leverage clinical insights from biometric screenings to connect employees to virtual care solutions for not only acute, but also preventive, care any time and anywhere.
Why virtual care?
Virtual care options help close gaps in care for employers by helping employees connect the dots between diagnostic insights and next steps for care. By adding virtual care solutions to your Quest Diagnostics biometric screenings, you can take your population health program to the next level. Employees receive trusted clinical screening results from Quest, and are then able to connect with a certified health professional for virtual follow-up care and next steps. These professionals can also link employees back to other well-being offerings.
