New cardiometabolic program further builds upon the existing Amwell ecosystem of digital health plan offerings to improve continuous care for plan members
Amwell® (NYSE: AMWL), a leader in digital healthcare enablement, today announced the expansion of its digital clinical programs to include a cardiometabolic program, enabling health plans and clinicians to seamlessly connect members living with common chronic diseases, such as diabetes and high blood pressure, to Dario’s highly personalized digital therapeutic solution on the Amwell platform.
In partnership with personalized global digital therapeutic leader DarioHealth (Nasdaq: DRIO), the new cardiometabolic program builds upon the comprehensive Amwell portfolio of care solutions and network of affiliated clinicians, designed to address member needs both in and outside the provider office. Together, the Amwell digital care delivery platform, Amwell’s affiliated clinicians and Dario’s clinically proven cardiometabolic digital therapeutic solution will drive better health outcomes for members through a continuously connected care experience.
"Member care and engagement are top-of-mind for health plans, especially as consumers demand more digital tools and effective, value-driven care,” says Dr. Ido Schoenberg, chairman and co-CEO of Amwell. “By bringing solutions like Dario into our ecosystem of care programs, Amwell empowers health plans and their clinicians to create a more cohesive, integrated, and comprehensive digital journey for their members. It’s an approach that ultimately drives better outcomes and more modernized engagement. This new capability further expands the scope of our single, highly scalable platform powered by Converge™. It adds yet another important component in delivering our clients ‘one stop shop’ digital care enablement solution, addressing their most important and diversified needs today while being future ready.”
Cardiometabolic conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure are some of the most pervasive and costly medical conditions in the U.S., with more than one-third of Americans living with metabolic-related health condition1, over 37 million living with diabetes and an additional 96 million being pre-diabetic2.
Members receiving care via clinicians practicing on the Amwell platform can be referred seamlessly to a Dario program, minimizing roadblocks to care. The Dario solution addresses diabetes, high blood pressure and weight management needs with a holistic and highly individualized hybrid care experience. It combines connected devices, like glucometers, with intelligent data-driven digital experiences and personalized one-on-one health coaching.
“We are thrilled to partner with Amwell to build a more connected healthcare experience for members living with cardiometabolic heath needs,” said Rick Anderson, president of Dario. “Dario’s highly personalized digital solutions are designed to complement care from a professional with a proven ability to drive sustainable behavior change and improve health outcomes. Integration with Amwell’s market-leading platform will create the cohesive experience that members want and help deliver better outcomes for payers.”
