The integration paves the way for simplified access to Lifescan suite of diagnostic services for telehealth and traditional care providers.
SKOKIE, IL / ACCESSWIRE / October 4, 2023 / Lifescan Health (Lifescan), a provider of CLIA-certified diagnostic services, announced a new partnership with Health Gorilla, a privacy-focused Health Information Network and interoperability solution provider. As a leader in national healthcare interoperability, Health Gorilla enables secure data sharing at a national scale across platforms, without the cost and engineering burden of integrating with individual data sources. The integration between the two companies gives telehealth, hybrid, and traditional care providers the ability to order laboratory tests from Lifescan and see results in a completely frictionless environment.
The addition of Lifescan to the Health Gorilla network enables a broad network of providers to access self-collection kits for their patient populations, kitting and fulfillment services, and a proven technology stack to support rapid, accurate results designed to improve care outcomes.
"By combining our aptitude in advanced diagnostics and automation-driven laboratory services with Health Gorilla's immense network, technology, and status as a candidate Qualified Health Information Network, this partnership is a major step forward for both companies and our partners in healthcare. Together, we are realizing a common mission of improving access to care services for providers and patients alike," said Mr. Elly Kutoff, CEO of Lifescan Health.
"We're pleased to integrate with Lifescan Health, broadening the diversity of vendors in our national lab network. Providers across the country can seamlessly transact with Lifescan and start shipping their patients at-home tests. As we pursue status as a candidate Qualified Health Information Network, we're eager to bridge the gap between payers, provider organizations, and diagnostic labs, enabling comprehensive and compliant data exchange," said Sergio Wagner, Chief Strategy Officer at Health Gorilla.
Lifescan continues to develop a full line of at-home test kits, processed by systems that support the company's full-suite diagnostic services. Health Gorilla recently announced its acceptance for onboarding as a Qualified Health Information Network (QHIN) by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
