Inaugural partners include Workpath and ScriptDrop to enable in-home blood draws and medication delivery

BOSTON, August 04, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Current Health, the leading enterprise remote care management platform, has launched a curated network of in-home service partners that will seamlessly integrate with the Current Health platform. As part of the launch, Current Health will offer platform integrations with Workpath and ScriptDrop – both of which expand on Current Health’s ability to support end-to-end clinical models that keep patient care centered around the home.

As healthcare organizations look to expand their footprint in the home, Current Health’s partner community will help fill any gaps in resources and enable more consumer-centric experiences. Partnerships leverage existing workflows, integrating with electronic medical record (EMR) and other data systems to accelerate time to market for in-home care models and clinical trials.

Workpath and ScriptDrop are the first of many partnerships that Current Health is developing at a local, national, and global level – ranging from transportation services to in-home infusion therapy. To quickly grow its available service offerings, Current Health will provide an open API to allow partners to easily make services available within the Current Health platform.

Workpath, a Ro company, offers healthcare providers a full-service platform for conducting in-home blood tests without patients having to visit a lab or hospital. Leveraging data pulled from the Current Health’s clinical dashboard, physicians can determine what blood tests are needed, and then use the Workpath integration to schedule and dispatch a certified phlebotomist or nurse to the patients’ home to get the required sample, ship it to a lab for processing, and seamlessly receive the results. Workpath can reach 95% of patients across the U.S. through its nationwide network of professionals and supports the in-home services of health systems, clinical trials operators, labs, digital health companies, and more.

"The vast majority of healthcare decisions rely on lab results. Workpath empowers providers to reliably schedule and dispatch a nurse or phlebotomist to conduct specimen collections and blood draws with a convenient, end-to-end experience that meets their patients where they already are – at home," said Eddie Peloke, CEO of Workpath. "In ten years, more healthcare services will be delivered in the home than in every hospital, doctor’s office, or pharmacy combined. Current Health is part of accelerating the promise of home-based care and we are proud to partner with them on this initiative."

ScriptDrop offers medication delivery in all 50 states across the U.S. to increase patient choice when it comes to drug selection and price. By accessing same-day and on-demand delivery through the Current Health platform, organizations can simplify medication access, improve therapy adherence, and reduce readmissions.

"Imagine a world where doctors can monitor your vital sign information, develop a diagnosis and treatment plan, and then manage medication delivery right to your door – all without you ever having to step foot in a doctor’s office or hospital," said Amanda Epp, CEO of ScriptDrop. "That’s what we’re enabling with Current Health. With approximately 110 million prescriptions abandoned each year in the U.S., we know that improving access to medication can improve patient outcomes."

Chris McCann, CEO and Co-Founder of Current Health, added, "So much of healthcare can – and should – be delivered in the home. Home-based care not only fosters better patient experiences and outcomes but drives massive efficiencies at a time when we’re navigating an aging population and a shrinking healthcare workforce. By developing a robust network of in-home service partners, we hope to support our customers by filling any gaps in their workforce so they can focus on delivering high quality care at home. We are thrilled to welcome Workpath and ScriptDrop as inaugural integration partners, helping our customers accelerate the shift to care at home and providing better patient experiences and outcomes."
