NEW YORK, April 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- DarioHealth Corp. (Nasdaq: DRIO), a pioneer in global digital therapeutics (DTx), announced today a new partnership with value-based telemedicine provider MediOrbis to expand Dario's existing service offering with a full suite of telemedicine capabilities for its 50,000 active users.
The decision to expand Dario's remote care services is driven by the increased risk for COVID-19 complications faced by Dario's 50,000 users who depend on Dario's digital platform to manage chronic conditions like diabetes, hypertension and obesity.
With Dario's most recent app, users may now access a full complement of physician-directed, patient care from home and other remote locations, a capability necessary in the new healthcare reality of "Stay at Home" regions or quarantine mandated cities.
The MediOrbis platform delivers quality, easily accessible, remote healthcare to patients worldwide through the MySpecialistMD network composed of primary care, specialty care and sub-specialty care physicians on a world-class telemedicine technology platform.
MediOrbis doctors are U.S. board-certified, state-licensed and credentialed in their respective fields from top medical institutions to provides multiple programs and services, including:
● Primary and Acute Care: For urgent medical needs
● Chronic Disease Management: Tools that help manage long term illness such as diabetes, hypertension (high blood pressure), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), heart failure, and asthma
● Specialty Services: Licensed specialists that provide consultations or second opinions regarding complex specialty medical questions
"We are pleased to be able to deploy our industry leading physician network and telehealth platform to help those most at risk for complications from COVID-19 due to chronic illness like diabetes and hypertension," said Jonathan Wiesen, MD, MediOrbis' founder and chief medical officer. "Dario's open architecture and user base allows us to make the greatest impact when patients suffering from chronic illness lack access to their regular healthcare providers."
"This partnership broadens Dario's SaaS-based service offering by delivering on-demand access to physicians who can not only help treat acute illness, but also provide care for chronic medical conditions such as diabetes and hypertension," said Rick Anderson, DarioHealth's president and general manager. "As we seek complementary offerings to create complete business-to-business (B2B) healthcare solutions for remote care, now in high demand and perhaps the future standard, we believe we have a strong partner in MediOrbis."
