In recent times, accelerated by the Covid-19 pandemic, virtual healthcare has been making great strides when it comes to giving people convenient and safe access to doctor’s appointments and medication. 9am.health applies this approach by providing modern healthcare for people living with diabetes or prediabetes — addressing their needs in an easy, affordable, kind way via the internet.
“Diabetes care feels much more complicated and expensive than it has to be. By making the entire care experience virtual, we bring the doctor’s office, pharmacy, and lab directly to the convenience of your home” stated Paul Geevarghese, Co-Founder & Chief Medical Officer.
Two of the co-founders and many employees at 9am.health live with diabetes, so the company knows firsthand the complexities of managing a chronic condition. The team behind 9am.health created its services to make life better for everyone living with diabetes, high blood pressure and other related health issues.
9am.health’s services include a personalized treatment plan that offers online prescriptions, medication delivery, at-home lab tests, and 24/7 access to a medical team.
Members of 9am.health have access to its top medical team including providers who prescribe the most appropriate medications; pharmacists to assist with prescription questions; and a team of licensed diabetes care and education specialists. These specialists are registered dietitian nutritionists that help people with their diet and exercise plan. All care is coordinated by patient care advocates, who are accessible day and night to ensure easy and compassionate support whenever patients need it.
How annoying is it to wait in crowded waiting rooms? With 9am.health, patients can avoid wasting time in the doctor’s office by filling out an online form and checking in with 9am.health’s doctors — letting the medical team know about their current treatment plan and how it works for them. The process takes about 10 minutes and will be the basis for the patients’ prescription.
Patients who signed up for one of the 9am.health plans do not have to worry about pharmacy lines and refills. They will get their prescription medication either on a monthly or quarterly basis, depending on which option they choose. Packaging is always discrete with free door-to-door shipping.
Members of 9am.health enjoy access to their personal medical care specialists. No need to make an appointment, the care team will respond within two hours after sending their questions.
Do you want to know your A1C or cholesterol level? 9am.health can also provide at-home lab tests that can easily be done on your schedule at home. The at-home lab tests help the 9am.health provider team adjust medication dosages and improve the patients’ treatment plans. The tests are shipped directly to the patient for easy testing.
“It’s basically what I have been doing to take care of my diabetes, only a lot more convenient. It saves time and money! I love the peace of mind, knowing that my meds are coming automatically and somebody watches out for my values,” shared Linda, a satisfied member from Austin, Texas.
9am.health’s services are tailored toward people with type 2 diabetes, prediabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. They currently serve patients residing in California and Texas and will launch in an additional 30 states in September.
