DarioHealth (NSDQ:DRIO) announced that it launched a new virtual care initiative with MediOrbis to improve virtual care for diabetes.
New York-based DarioHealth’s collaboration with MediOrbis is slated to offer eligible Medicare members with diabetes a convenient method for virtual care that includes MediOrbis’ telehealth offerings and DarioHealth’s AI-powered remote patient monitoring, according to a news release.
The new virtual care program will be made available to the approximately 75,000 diabetic members of Dario’s platform, of which 30% are over the age of 65. Current Dario members will have access to high-quality, convenient care at a potentially lower out-of-pocket cost, the company said.
Additionally, the program will be marketed to qualified Medicare members who aren’t currently using Dario’s platform, opening up the opportunity for significant expansion of Dario’s remote patient monitoring business.
The companies said the commercial terms of the deal, which were not disclosed, are consistent with terms of Dario’s other RPM contracts.
