Healthyr for Pharmaceutical Companies
Partnerships to increase patient diagnosis and improve health outcomes.
Healthyr empowers pharmaceutical companies to address the country's most common chronic diseases, infectious diseases, and cancer remotely, improving patient access and health outcomes.
How Healthyr Can Benefit Pharmaceutical Companies
Case Study: How a Healthyr Partnership Can Support Your Goals
Healthyr recently partnered with a large pharmaceutical company to support outreach efforts for a Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) medication.
Because Chronic Kidney Disease shows no symptoms in its early stages, patients are often missed until their condition is more severe. But early diagnosis can be lifesaving when combined with proper medication to slow the progression of the disease.
Through our remote testing services, Healthyr is able to identify patients in need sooner, driving medication participation and improving health outcomes.
CKD Outreach Steps:
Use remote screening to identify at-risk patients. Healthyr attends conferences, fairs, and large-scale events with urine analysis test strips to perform initial kidney disease screening. Patients who receive an abnormal result are directed to Healthyr’s more in-depth Kidney Health Test, which tests three indicators of CKD.
Direct at-risk patients to necessary care. People with results indicative of reduced kidney function are directed to telehealth services. The results from their tests can be used by healthcare providers to diagnose and action next steps
Drive medication participation. Patients with Chronic Kidney Disease are prescribed medication to treat the condition, resulting in slowed disease progression and improved health outcomes.
How Does Remote Health Testing Work?
Dried Blood Spot Testing
Healthyr uses a form of diagnostics called Dried Blood Spot (DBS) Testing, a form of microsampling that has been in use since the 1960s in neonatal care and health testing in some of the world’s most remote locations. We have expanded this technology to accurately test a wide range of health biomarkers, allowing people to check various aspects of their health from the comfort of home.
The tests utilize an ADX sample collection card, which separates the blood solids from the blood plasma. Users prick their finger with a lancet and place a few drops onto the sample collection card. Once dry, the sample is placed in a biohazard bag and mailed to our lab, after which they will receive their test results within 3 days of lab receipt.
Urine Analysis Testing
Two types of urine analysis are currently used by Healthyr. The first tests urine which users collect and mail to the lab, after which test results are uploaded within 3 days of lab receipt. The second utilizes test strips which users dip into a sample and get near-instant results.
