California-based Sprinter Health announced its partnership with Firefly Health to integrate its home clinical services into Firefly’s virtual primary care.
Firefly’s members will be able to receive lab draws, vital checks, electrocardiograms, and diabetic eye exams and food screenings at home through Sprinter’s phlebotomists and nurses. Firefly physicians will receive the lab results and notes electronically for review.
The rollout will begin with Firefly patients located in the Boston area, Mobi Health News reports.
“Together with Firefly Health, we are helping to condense the time it takes to gather important data that a physician needs into just minutes of a patient’s time,” Max Cohen, CEO and cofounder of Sprinter Health, said in a statement.
“The result is the convenience and affordability of telehealth combined with high-touch, in-person services needed to ensure physicians have critical information to make an accurate diagnosis and provide the best care.”
