DarioHealth Corp., a pioneer in the global digital therapeutics market, announced it has been selected as digital health provider by Coastal Family Health Center, a local, non-profit healthcare network providing comprehensive primary care to patients across several underserved counties in and around the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
The initial focus of the engagement will be Dario’s Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) solution for hypertension and the prevention of related cardiac events. According to the Centers for Disease Control, Mississippi has the highest rate of hypertension mortality and the second highest prevalence of hypertension in the nation.1 Patients will benefit from personalized digital journeys curated and powered by Dario’s next-generation artificial intelligence (AI) digital therapeutic tools and quality care, which enable more frequent and meaningful interactions with their healthcare providers and improve outcomes, to help them manage their chronic conditions.
“Today’s announcement is just the beginning of an exciting set of new Business-to-Business (B2B) channel clients that we intend to announce over the coming weeks with providers, employers and payers,” stated Rick Anderson, President and General Manager of North America at DarioHealth. “We are very pleased to have been selected by Coastal Family Health Center for their digital health needs following a rigorous evaluation process that included many of the major competitors in our industry. We believe our selection by Coastal Family Health Center reflects not only the strength of our RPM capabilities, but also our differentiated ‘customer-first’ approach that allows us to tailor our program to their specific needs while opening up access to healthcare to support patients when and how they need.”
“As a non-profit, federally qualified health center charged with providing primary care services in underserved areas, we strive to achieve the best patient outcomes while prudently managing our limited resources,” stated Stacy Curry, Director of Clinical Quality Management at Coastal Family Health Center. “I believe Dario’s RPM solution, which allows our physicians to monitor our more than 4,500 hypertension patients between office visits, will ultimately result in fewer cardiac events and hospital admissions. I look forward to integrating Dario’s solution with our existing electronic medical records (EMR) system to create a data-driven, real-time holistic view of each of our members.”
