Semler Launches WellChec™ Platform
The catalyst for preventative medicine is to recognize disease processes early in their course and to institute care management to affect clinical outcomes. However the primary care physician shortage impedes efforts to make these early diagnoses and interventions. Cost effective wellness is desired by patients, the government, physicians and the insurance industry. Now, Semler's suite of services called WellChec™ is available to do basic tests for diseases of the arteries, lungs, eyes, nerves and heart.
"We believe the economy of scale to combine tests and services provides greater return on investment for our clients, enhanced revenue opportunity for us and may reduce overall healthcare expenditures for disease management. It is the intent of the service to both provide the equipment and tools to do the tests as well as personnel on a sub-contracted basis to perform the measurements," said
"Our target market is health insurance plans and integrated healthcare delivery systems who want to do health risk assessments and preventative care management. WellChec™ is intended to be a one-stop shopping solution where these customers can get the information that they need without burdening the primary care doctors who are in short supply," continued Dr. Murphy-Chutorian.
