Diabetes is a global epidemic that leads to hospitalizations and morbid complications. Today, over 400 million people currently have diabetes, and by 2040, the prevalence is expected to grow to close to 650 million. Diabetes, around the world, is complex and costly due to the asymptomatic development of complications. To get the needed preventive services, patients have to visit multiple specialists to properly assess their risk of complications. In communities vulnerable to provider shortages, limited medical technologies, and a lack of healthcare infrastructure, compliance to specialist visits is low and leads to outcomes like amputation, blindness, stroke, and dialysis.
Community Healthcare Infrastructure
CarePort is an infrastructure solution to eliminate the burden of referrals for diabetes complications. CarePorts are tech-driven diabetes health centers staffed by certified community health workers, integrated with a menu of connected diagnostic technologies, and powered by an AI platform of workflow and healthcare analytics. A referral to CarePort helps close gaps in care and reduces unnecessary utilization of health system resources and services.
Streamlining Diabetes Care
CarePort offers a one-stop visit to simplify the diabetes patient journey. We extend the reach of health systems into vulnerable communities and deliver personalized check-up and follow-up visits. Each CarePort visit is completed in under 60 minutes, reinforces the relationship between health systems and patients, and results in a CarePort Report with provider insight to preventing complications.
CarePort uses predictive analytics to drive better patient experience and outcomes. We use workflow analytics to optimize the CarePort visit, avoid waiting time, and allow flexible scheduling for patients. We use healthcare analytics to create a CarePort Report with referral and treatment recommendations based on the patient’s risk of complications. With the insight from the CarePort Report, primary care physicians are more informed in managing patient care plans, specialists are more timely in treating complications, and payers can avoid costly outcomes.
