Catapult Health Launches Virtual Checkup For Preventive Care
PR Newswire | June 24, 2020
Catapult Health, a leading provider of onsite and virtual preventive healthcare, today announced a new program for employers offering preventive care checkups to their employees, regardless of location. Catapult Health's new Virtual Checkup brings the clinical preventive care appointment to any location, incorporating a home kit for blood testing, key measurements, medical history, depression and COVID-19 screenings, a virtual consultation with a nurse practitioner, plus a personal health report. As employers address a "next normal" due to COVID-19, they are faced with a larger remote workforce, who may have new or worsening chronic conditions due to delayed wellness visits with their doctors out of concern of the virus. The stress of the pandemic has also negatively impacted mental health. Virtual care is being used by some as an option and there is a high level of interest among employers in expanding their use of virtual care. Employers looking to support employees often have narrow, specialized options designed to address specific issues. Catapult Health offers a comprehensive, clinically-based program that engages and educates participants at the time of appointment, traditionally working with employers for preventive checkups at onsite clinics. In introducing this virtual program, employers now have another option for preventive checkups and can easily include satellite locations, remote employees, and even spouses.
